Simple Verse Can Sing The Right Tune In Coronation Cup Betting

Saturday 4th June 2016, 3.10pm - Epsom Derby (Sat)

Race days don't get much bigger than Epsom this Saturday as the Derby takes place but as well a the big one there is a cracking supporting card, including the Group 1 Coronation Cup. The Coronation Cup takes place over the 1m4f Derby course and distance but it is only open to horses aged four and older and we have a cracking little field of eight engaged this season, with three horses in particular well fancied.

  • Aidan O'Brien has trained the Coronation Cup seven times during his career, including six times since 2007
  • There has been no 4YO winner of the Coronation Cup since 2011 when St Nicholas Abbey won the race for the first time.

Big Three Set to Fight It Out

We have a field of eight for the Coronation Cup this season but in truth there are three horses with a realistic chance of claiming the Group 1 contest and it should be a titantic battle. The warm favourite is sure to be Postponed who was something of a surprise winner of the King George at Ascot last season but has since shown himself to be a middle distance horse of the very highest order.

The Roger Varian trained 5YO has won his last four races including last time out when winning the Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan with more than a little bit in hand back in March. He is yet to run at Epsom which is always a slight worry but he is reported to be well at home and given his King George winning form, Postponed is a worthy favourite at a price of 10/11 with Betfair.

Aidan O' Brien has a remarkable record in the Coronation Cup with seven wins in the race and he will be relying on Found in this year's race. The 4YO filly is getting weight from Postponed and on her best form she would have a great chance here against the boys which means she has to come into consideration.

Found (7/2) won the Breeders Cup Turf over 1m4f last October ahead of Arc winner Golden Horn which is top class form by any standard although she will need to be better than when beaten on her seasonal debut last time out and too much rain at Epsom would also be a worry for her chances.

Found is not the only top class filly in the field this year with Simple Verse another very interesting contender taking on Postponed this weekend. The Ralph Beckett trained filly was a massive improver last season which culminated in a St Leger win at Doncaster up at 1m6f and a Champion Fillies and Mares Stakes success at Ascot over 1m4f which proves her stamina.

Simple Verse was beaten on seasonal debut at Newmarket last month in Group 2 company but she gave the impression she will come on for the run and as a guaranteed stayer plenty will be interested in backing her, whatever the ground, at a price of 4/1 with Ladbrokes.

It would be a surprise if any other horse troubled the front three but we should mention Arabian Queen (14/1) who famously left the Knavesmire crowd in a state of shock last summer when she defeated Golden Horn to win the International Stakes which would give her a chance, but in truth that was a fluke and has shown nothing like that form since.

Postponed Under Attack From The Girls

Postponed is a rock solid middle distance horse when it comes to Group 1 level and he certainly sets the standard here but up against two classy fillies, he might just have enough on his plate.

Found is top draw but her run last time out was slightly disappointing and she won't want it too soft which means that our selection here has to be Simple Verse who could be one of the stars of the season. She shaped well when narrowly beaten on seasonal debut and as a Leger winner we can guarantee she will be running through the line.
