Cheltenham Festival Day 4: Cheltenham Gold Cup

Taking place on the fourth and final day of the Cheltenham Festival, the Cheltenham Gold Cup is a steeplechase race that is widely regarded as the biggest run of the multi-day event. The race is seen as the most prestigious event on the National Hunt calendar, drawing in massive crowds both at the racetrack and through those watching on TV.

It’s also the wealthiest non-handicap race in Great Britain, with a total prize purse exceeding £625,000. Some of the finest chasers in the history of the sport have made their names at the Gold Cup.

Popular champions like Arkle and Best Mate have cemented the race’s status over the years. Today, it’s perhaps the most important event in British horse racing, and it’s hugely popular with punters. The Gold Cup draws more betting interest than many other Cheltenham races combined.

Gold Cup: Tips and Predictions

This year, the Gold Cup field looks very interesting. Leading the pack is two-time Gold Cup champion Al Boum Photo, trained by Willie Mullins. At eight-years-old, the French bay gelding is still in the right age range as the past 12 winners were all aged nine or younger.

In 2020, Al Boum Photo won two Grade 1 jumps races, including the 2020 Gold Cup. The horse is currently favoured to win, with 9/2 betting odds. Five of the last 12 winners were favourites.

Meanwhile, Minella Indo closely trails Al Boum Photo with the bookies. The Henry de Bromhead trained horse came in second at Cheltenham last year. Santini has shown great form through 2020, with one victory and two second-places, including the 2020 Gold Cup.
