Coronation Cup Odds: Emily Upjohn fancied to follow up last year's success

The Coronation Cup takes place on Friday 31st May and Emily Upjohn is the favourite to win for the second year in a row.

The race is a Group 1 contest and tends to attract some former Derby or Oaks competitors, as is the case this year as Emily Upjohn, second in the 2022 Oaks, looks to defend her crown.

John and Thady Gosden's five-year-old landed the contest last year, with the favourite and subsequent Arc runner-up Westover behind in second, and she heads the market this time around as she looks to become the first consecutive winner since St Nicholas Abbey made it three-in-a-row in 2013.

Emily Upjohn

John and Thady Gosden's mare was a worthy winner last year, with Frankie Dettori producing a fantastic ride to navigate her from last to first in the final three furlongs. 

Defeats in the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown and the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Ascot marked a disappointing follow-up to that effort and a fifth on her seasonal reappearance at Meydan was not the best preparation for a race as tough as the Coronation Cup. 

However, she is entitled to have needed that run and she commands the utmost respect following last year's triumph. The favourite will be tough to beat. 


The market suggests that Luxembourg will be the main rival to Emily Upjohn's title defence, despite a poor run of form since his sensational Gold Cup win at the Curragh 12 months ago. 

Six races without a win have followed that triumph, including a 14th of 16 at Meydan last time out, but he has racked up nearly one million pounds in career winnings and is proven in these sorts of contests. 

Feed The Flame

One of the biggest unknown entities in the field is undoubtedly Feed The Flame, who will be racing on British shores for the first time. 

Having raced his whole career in France, Pascal Bary's four-year-old looks set for a decent go at this prize, with his close third in last month's Group 1 Prix Ganay at Longchamp some of the best form in the field.
