The Coral Cup Hurdle: Tips and Predictions
Note: the predictions below refer to the 2021 running of this race – preview will be updated closer to the beginning of the 2022 Cheltenham Festival.
A maximum field for the Coral Cup ensures this won’t be easy. Craigneiche is up 12lb but was very impressive at Ascot last time; he’s one of four in the mix for Nicky Henderson in his attempt to win three of these in a row.
BOTOX HAS was behind him last time but is much better off on these terms with Allmankind the only horse to beat Gary Moore’s charge in three visits to Cheltenham (two wins) and he could find plenty more back around here.
Guard Your Dreams has a chance too for Nigel Twiston-Davies on the basis of his late work in the Betfair Hurdle last time.
