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).

Coronation Stakes Information:

To see which runners the OLBG racing tipsters are tipping throughout the card that includes this race, head over to the Royal Ascot tips on the day of the race, do they agree with the runners on the trend shortlist or are they predicting other runners? We cover every race at Royal Ascot and below you can find links to all of the races for each of Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday. In addition to those, we also cover numerous races at Ascot during the flat season, you can find links to those here.

How competitive is the Coronation Stakes market? When looking at the over-rounds for the last 20 renewals, the most competitive market was in 2023 when the race had an over-round of 110%. The race in 2016 was a race that was most in the bookie's favour with an over-round of 127%, whilst on average over the last 20 renewals of the Coronation Stakes, the over-round has been 119%, which means the bookie expects to pay out £100 for every £119 which is bet.

Coronation Stakes Trends:

Looking at the future form, is the winner worth following next time out? From the past 20 if you had followed the winner of the Coronation Stakes next time out then you would have backed a total of 5 winners. Backing all 19 runners who have been out since to win at SP next time out, would have returned an LSP of +0.93. Before placing your bet on the 2024 Coronation Stakes see which other runners today are being backed on the racing predictions page.

Over the last 20 renewals, it was Alpha Centauri, trained by Mrs John Harrington and ridden by Colm O'Donoghue who set the fastest winning time in the Coronation Stakes, the runner won the race in a time of 1:35.89 when winning the race in 2018. At the other end of the scale, it was the combination of trainer Andrew Balding and jockey Oisin Murphy with Alcohol Free who set the slowest winning time, the race-winning time was 1:43.13 in the 2021 renewal.

These are the top three quickest-run Coronation Stakes over the last 20 renewals:

  1. Alpha Centauri (1:35.89) in 2018
  2. Maids Causeway (1:36.59) in 2005
  3. Ghanaati (1:38.32) in 2009
What the expert says...
Fifteen of the last twenty winners of the Coronation Stakes came from either the English (x6), Irish (x6) or French (x3) 1,000 Guineas with seven of those winning both races, the last to do so was the 2023 winner Tahiyra who won the Irish 1,000 Guineas before winning this.
