St James Palace Stakes: Get a Mighty 25/1 on Favourite Churchill

Churchill, Royal Ascot

Top trainer Aidan O’Brien kept Churchill away from the Epsom Derby earlier this month with a view to entering the horse at Royal Ascot and as a result, the three year old is widely expected to triumph in the St James Palace Stakes on the opening day of the meeting.

A heavy odds on favourite across the sportsbooks, Coral have Churchill listed at 8/11 in their standard markets but, new customers to this bookmaker can take advantage of a new promo that would lift that considerably. 25/1 is the price boost in question and here’s why the horse has a strong chance of delivering.

Front Runner

Churchill’s opening race in May 2016 resulted in a third placed finish at the Curragh but since then he has been unstoppable. Seven straight wins include a double in the UK 2000 Guineas and the Irish 2000 Guineas this year and the horse was the initial hot favourite for the Derby prior to a late withdrawal.

For the St James Palace Stakes, Coral have that 8/15 price on their standard books while the best odds at present stand at 4/6 with BetFred and SportingBet. That leaves a significant gap to second favourite Barney Roy at a top price of 9/4 with William Hill and Paddy Power so, with 25/1 on the table, this is a promo worth a second look.

The Process

As mentioned, this is a deal for new customers to Coral so, if you don’t already hold an account here, you can sign up via the link and register your details in a quick and easy procedure that should take around two minutes. Coral will then take you to the cashier where you must deposit at least £5.00 but please use a debit or credit card as certain eWallets are excluded from this deal.

Funds should clear immediately and then you must stake the fixed amount of £1.00 on Churchill to win the St James Palace Stakes at Ascot on Tuesday June 20. If the horse and yourself are winners, returns at Coral’s standard book price go back into your account as cash while the balance, up to that enhanced figure of 25/1, will arrive as a free bet token. And, if your bet were to lose, you will still receive a consolation in the shape of a free bet worth £5.00.

Please check all terms and conditions before you proceed and note that with Coral, free bet tokens have a 4 day shelf life before they expire.

Race goers can look forward to a great five days of action across the Royal Ascot card with around 25% of UK Flat Racing Group One renewals condensed into just under a week. Thursday’s Gold Cup is the highlight for most of us but the St James Palace Stakes is a great way to start the festival on Tuesday and you can also look to start your Ascot betting in a positive way by considering this great price boost on the favourite.
