Cheltenham Festival: Coral Cup betting preview


RACING anorak Graeme Johnston (@GraemeJ_83) analyses the field for the Coral Cup, the third race on Day 2 at Cheltenham Festival.

Coral Cup | Wednesday 11th March 2020, 14:50 | ITV1

The Coral Cup is one of the big betting handicaps of the meeting and this is typically competitive. My best advice here is shop around for each-way value with some bookmakers offering seriously enhanced places.
JP McManus loves to target the handicaps with his horses and Gavin Cromwell is equally adept at landing gambles. Their runner Alfa Mix (11/1 Unibet) has been heavily supported in recent days and he's my selection here.
He has plenty of big field experience and his last two runs, a win and a second, put him bang in contention for this.

About Author

I grew up watching Hearts games with my dad and playing football at every opportunity so betting on it was the logical next step! Football coupons became a Saturday ritual and it introduced me into the world of horse racing. I started watching it on a regular basis, and after Galileo's Derby win in 2001 I was hooked. I follow both flat and national hunt racing attending the northern meetings when possible.
