The Coral Cup is a Grade 3 handicap race that takes place on day 2 of the Cheltenham Festival. The distance is 2 miles 5 furlongs with 10 hurdles to be jumped. It is run over the old course at Cheltenham and is open to horses aged 4 years and older. No horse has ever won the Cheltenham Coral Cup more than once during their career, although Davy Russel has won this race 3 times on Naiad de Misselot (2008), Carlito Brigante (2011) and Diamond King (2016). Another recent winner is Supasundae.


This looks like a bit of a plot job by connections. He was 2nd behind Black Corton when he last raced at Cheltenham in 2017. At 33-1 with extra places on offer, he´s worth mentioning as an EW shout.

May not get in here, but has every chance if she does. The price is maybe a bit skinny now, but look for some boosts on the day.
