Royal Ascot 2018: Alpha Centauri the ace in the Coronation Stakes pack

Alpha Centauri relished the return to quick when landing the Irish 1000 Guineas last time out and with underfoot conditions in her favour is strongly fancied at 7/2 to follow-up in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot today (4.30).

Jessica Harrington’s appeared to have plenty to do when Could It Be Love kicked clear in the home straight but picked up in good style yo get up close home and score by 1 3/4 lengths.

Alpha Centauri showed a good attitude and won going away at the linw.

It was an impressive display and she also ran well at this meeting last year when runner-up to Different league in the Albany Stakes when she arguably should have won.

There is no esaon why she shoukd not confirm the Guineas form with Clemmei who finsihed ninth, even allowing for the fact that rival clearly needed the otuing adter a setback.

Alpha Centauri is the type who will prove tough to beat when she has her optimum conditions, which she does today, and she can come out on top in a facsianting battle between three Guineas winners.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Alpha Centauri (7/2 generally available – use BOG firms)
