Coronation Stakes 2021 Racecard

The Coronation Stakes is a Group 1 race open to three-year-old fillies. It is scheduled to take place each year on the fourth day (Friday) of Royal Ascot and is staged on the round course over a mile.

4:20 Fri 18 Jun CORONATION STAKES

Distance: 7f 213y Age: 3yo O Prize: £242,080 Going: Soft

Analyst's Verdict

MOTHER EARTH wasn't far off landing the British/French 1000 Guineas double and, with the best form, she's a solid option to get back to winning ways in what looks an up-to-scratch Coronation Stakes. Stablemate and Irish Guineas winner Empress Josephine looks a big threat, while Pretty Gorgeous is a player based on 2-y-o form.

jockey silks 1. ALCOHOL FREE (IRE)
J: Oisin Murphy
T: Andrew Balding

9-0
Generally progressive filly who landed the Cheveley Park last year. Only fifth to Mother Earth in the 1000 Guineas last time and no obvious reason to think she'll reverse the form.
2
jockey silks 2. EMPRESS JOSEPHINE (IRE)
J: Seamie Heffernan
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Tremendously well-bred filly who surged home to get up late in the Irish 1000 Guineas. No reason to think this vastly quicker ground will be an inconvenience

jockey silks 3. FEV ROVER (IRE)
J: Paul Hanagan
T: Richard Fahey
3
9-0
Smart filly who ran a huge race to finish third in the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket, then didn't get a clear run in the Irish equivalent last month. Likeable sort who can't be discounted.
4
jockey silks 4. FLIRTING BRIDGE (IRE)
J: W. M. Lordan
T: Henry de Bromhead, Ireland
3
9-0
Won as a juvenile and seemed to improve her form when runner-up in the 1000 Guineas Trial at Leopardstown in May. She's way short of the standard required to compete in this, though.
5
jockey silks 5. LULLABY MOON
J: James Doyle
T: Ralph Beckett
3
9-0
Had a 4-6 record last year, bagging valuable Two-Year-Old Trophy at Redcar before ending her campaign with 7f Chantilly Group 3 success (both heavy). Disappointing in France on reappearance, though.
6
jockey silks 6. MOTHER EARTH (IRE)
J: Ryan Moore
T: Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Highly likeable filly who landed the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket and found only one too good in the French version last month. Sets the standard and should put up another very bold showing.
7
jockey silks 7. NOVEMBA (GER)
J: David Egan
T: P. Schiergen, Germany
3
9-0
Left all previous form behind when making all in sensational style to land the German 1000 Guineas, so no surprise she's made the trip to have a crack at this. Warrants respect.
8
jockey silks 8. OODNADATTA (IRE)
J: Shane Foley
T: Mrs J. Harrington, Ireland
3
9-0
Useful 2yo who was last seen finishing down the field in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. This is a tough assignment back from 7 months off.
9
jockey silks 9. POTAPOVA
J: Richard Kingscote
T: Sir Michael Stoute
3
9-0
Highly promising type who has landed both starts in novices with any amount in hand, cruising away to land prohibitive odds at Redcar 32 days ago. Marked step up in grade is understandable.
10
jockey silks 10. PRETTY GORGEOUS (FR)
J: Frankie Dettori
T: Joseph Patrick O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Impressive as a 2yo, signing off with a comfortable success in the Fillies' Mile at Newmarket. Liable to strip fitter for her sub-par return in the Irish 1000 Guineas, so she's a definite player.
11
jockey silks 11. PRIMO BACIO (IRE)
J: Andrea Atzeni
T: Ed Walker
3
9-0
Highly progressive filly who quickened up in most impressive fashion to readily land a listed event at York 35 days ago. Big step up in class but she's worth her place.
12
jockey silks 12. SHALE (IRE)
J: G. M. Ryan
T: Donnacha Aidan O'Brien, Ireland
3
9-0
Three-time winner as a 2yo, including the Moyglare Stud Stakes. Shaped as if in need of her reappearance a couple of months ago and she'd be a player on her best form.
13
jockey silks 13. SNOW LANTERN
J: Sean Levey
T: Richard Hannon
3
9-0
Out of Sky Lantern and confirmed debut promise when impressive Newbur maiden winner on return. Latest third to Primo Bacio in listed company was a touch disappointing, but she remains with potential.

Betting Forecast : 10/3 3.33 MOTHER EARTH, 4/1 4 EMPRESS JOSEPHINE, 10/1 10 PRETTY GORGEOUS, 10/1 10 PRIMO BACIO, 11/1 11 NOVEMBA, 14/1 14 SNOW LANTERN, 14/1 14 ALCOHOL FREE, 16/1 16 POTAPOVA, 20/1 20 FEV ROVER, 25/1 25 SHALE, 33/1 33 LULLABY MOON, 50/1 50 FLIRTING BRIDGE, 66/1 66 OODNADATTA

The race was established in 1840, and its title commemorates the coronation of a new British monarch, Queen Victoria, two years earlier. The race’s name may have always been the same, but its status as a Group 1 event was not confirmed until 1988. That move has certainly been well rewarded, with the roll of honour in the last 30 years featuring some of racing’s most famous names, both equine and human. Ridgewood Pearl (1995), Attraction (2004) and Alpha Centauri (2018) are just three members of the fairer sex to have won the race in that time, all of whom arrived at Ascot on the back of wins in either (or both) the English or Irish editions of the 1000 Guineas.

The leading active trainer in the Coronation Stakes is Sir Michael Stoute, with the last of his four wins coming courtesy of the brilliant Russian Rhythm in 2003. She had also won the 1000 Guineas at Newmarket on her previous start and produced an even better effort to beat another multiple Group 1 winner Soviet Song in a memorable renewal of this race. Stoute has also won the Coronation Stakes with Sonic Lady (1986), Milligram (1987) and Exclusive (1998).

The leading jockeys in the recent history of the Coronation Stakes are Gérald Mossé and Ryan Moore, with two wins apiece. The former’s pair of successes came 18 years apart, with Gold Splash in 1993 and Immortal Verse in 2011, while Moore’s wins have both come more recently. The Clive Brittain-trained Rizeena provided him with his first success in 2014, before Winter added to her English and Irish 1000 Guineas wins in this race in 2017.
