What's Keith's Coronation Stakes Tips for Royal Ascot?

Keith Bond is our resident pro tipster here at FRT Towers.  He's been studying the cards, form, stats, trends and more for the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot, and here's his thoughts ahead of the race:

A proper quality race is in prospect with 1000 Guineas 3rd QUATRILATERAL heading the market. RUN WILD and CLOAK OF SPIRITS and SHARING are also fancied.

Keith's final choice

14:25 CLOAK OF SPIRITS 13/2 – Finished ahead of today favourite QUADRILLATERAL when they bumped to something special in the 1000 Guineas and is the value option in the race.

How it fared

CLOAK OF SPIRITS 5TH – Tracked leader, led two furlongs from home, weakened inside the final furlong when headed.

To be certain of getting Keith's final thoughts on every Royal Ascot race, make sure you have joined the FRT VIP Club.

This is what Keith said about the 2019 Coronation Stakes:

Leading Contenders
QABALA 4/1 – Won the Nell Gwyn at Newmarket over seven furlongs in April but was found wanting in the 1000 Guineas when finishing fourth behind HERMOSA.
HERMOSA 5/1 – Won the 1000 Guineas on first start this season. May need further in time.
JUBILOSO 7/1 – Unraced at two but has made up for lost time winning twice including an impressive seven length victory over seven furlongs.
CASTLE LADY 8/1 – Godolphin owned French raider. Unbeaten in three starts but may find conditions too quick at Ascot.

This race looks ideal for the progressive JUBILOSO 7/1 each way. This mile trip will be well within her scope.

What our members tipped in the Coronation Stakes

Each day we ask our members to select their Pick 6, their NAP for each race of the day.  We then collate all the picks, and present the top selections to our VIP members.  Here's how it went for the Coronation Stakes:

Ryan Moore gets the nod here on More Beautiful with a big 30% of the selections. Campanelle the best of the rest with 13.9% and Sacred way back in third with 8.7% of the selections.

AP O’Brien and Ryan Moore look all set to claim the Coronation Stakes with Hermosa and that’s who almost 60% have gone with!   Real mixed bag behind Hermosa, with only Jubiloso standing out.

Royal Ascot Coronation Stakes Results 2019

1 Alpine Star 9/2
2 Sharing 16/5
3 Quadrilateral 2/1F
7 ran

1 Watch Me 20/1
2 Hermosa 1/1F
3 Jubiloso 9/2
9 ran NR: Mot Juste Distances: 1½l, 1l, 1l

Our Verdict:

An impressive finish by 20/1 outsider WATCH ME meant that the evens favourite, and our members favourite HERMOSA was denied victory by a length and a half. Keith’s pick, JUBILOSO finished up a length adrift for 3rd place, taking the each way for some profit, only if you caught the price when advised at 7/1 as Jubiloso shortened into 9/2 and the each way value disappeared.
