2024 Coronation Stakes Preview

The Group 1 Coronation Stakes is run on the Friday of Royal Ascot when it's the fillies who steal the show! Established in 1840, the race is open to three-year-old fillies only and is run over just shy of a mile (7f 213yds). Good form in the English 1,000 Guineas or Irish 1,000 Guineas as well as the Poule d'Essai des Pouliches in France could be a pointer in the race.

When you consider we have seen 14 winners of this race in the past 23 years come from winning the English or Irish 1000 Guineas that is something to take note of! Watch out for the French raiders, three of the last six renewals have gone the way of the French including 2019 when Watch Me won for Francis-Henri Graffard.
