The #Racehour Cheltenham Festival Preview Night.


Jockey Trends

  • Davy Russell and Nico de Boinvile seem to enjoy this race - both have two wins here in the last decade.
  • Barry Geraghty, Robbie Power, Sam Twiston-Davies and Mark Walsh also enjoyed success in the Coral Cup in recent years.

How did the trends do last year?

There was a big shock at the Cheltenham Festival last year after William Henry landed at a massive 28/1 for Nicky Henderson with Nico de Boinville on board.

He wasn't strong on trends and was a shock winner of the race in regards to price and plenty more!



Who Fits The Trends Best In 2020?

Eglantine Du Seuil is the right age, on the right rating, ran well in the right trial last time and is a previous festival winner. She's one to take very seriously in the Coral Cup.
