CORAL CUP BETTING PREVIEWSandwiched between the more prestigious Coral Cup and the feature race of the second day of the Cheltenham Festival, the Queen Mother Champion Chase, the Coral Cup is one of the toughest races to solve at the Cheltenham Festival. It's a Grade 3 handicap hurdle covering two miles and five furlongs, for horses aged four years and upwards. Many horses come into the race looking well handicapped and those horses all seem to have obvious chances of winning.
Online bookmakers are paying out a quarter of the odds for a top four finish for each way bets, so with all the runners having double digit prices, we’d recommend going each way with your Coral Cup bets.
Who will win the Coral Cup 2021?We'll take a closer look at this year's Coral Cup and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail in this contest.
THE SHUNTER flew up the Cheltenham hill to land the Unibet Greatwood Hurdle in November. He He has more weight to carry on this occasion but we expect him to be in the mix.
MONTE CRISTO is unexposed after just four runs in the UK, and he impressed when landing a competitive Kempton handicap at 25/1 on Boxing Day. This Nicky Henderson's charge has already proven that testing ground suits when winning at Auteuil in October 2019.
GRAND ROI remains with plenty of potential into handicaps after just five career runs over hurdles. A Grade Two success at Limerick may well just lead to bigger and better things here.
BOTOX HAS has very much been laid out for this race. He has very good form at Cheltenham and it seems to bring out the best in him. Hopefully he will stay under 11st in the race as that would be a massive help to him.
CRAIGNECHE earned himself a 12lb hike in the weights when readily winning the Grade Three Holloway’s Handicap Hurdle at Ascot on his handicap debut in late January, but remains unexposed after just three starts over hurdles.
BIRCHDALE has been seen only once this season, when beaten 32 lengths in a novice chase by stablemate Angels Breath in November. He is a classy horse and will likely come here fresh, which could be cause for concern. Furthermore, its proven stamina will count for a lot up in the final hill.

Dark horses? SHAKEM UPARRY made a winning return at Ffos Las in November and then ran a sound race upped to 2m3f at Haydock on soft ground 13 days later. He began 2021 by playing second fiddle to impressive Grade 1 Tolworth winner Metier at Sandown back over the minimum distance.
BLACK TEARS has been well beaten in Listed and Graded contests at Punchestown and Leopardstown so far in 2020/21, but he looks reasonably treated in his return to Prestbury Park.
