Gold Cup Tips

1530 Cheltenham: Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup Chase: We’re firmly behind Native River to land a first success for the Colin Tizzard team. Although  we are suggesting some pennies (or pounds!) on Paul Nicholls’ underachieving Saphir Du Rheu to emulate the 1990 Gold Cup hero long shot Norton’s Coin! Stranger things have happened! Native River is now generally a 9/2 (with Betfred) chance whilst Saphir can be pounced at for a whopping 66/1 with Betfair Sportsbook.

1650 Cheltenham: Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle
Really competitive. If your week is going well and fancy a fun flutter, I would suggest throwing a couple of quid each way at Protek Des Flok  who has decent form. 33/1 best with bet365 and BetVictor.

1730 Cheltenham: Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Challenge Cup Handicap Chase
The final race can be an enjoyable fun flutter or one last dance if the rest of the week has been a shocker! If you think you might be in the latter category you wouldn’t go too wrong with the Colin Tizzard trained Quite By Chance who has had some spelndid form this season including a fabulous run behind former Champion Chaser Sire De Grugy at a valuable handicap at Ascot last November. 33/1 best with BetVictor and Coral.

Good luck on Gold Cup day!

Place 5 x £10 or more bets to receive £20 in free bets. Repeat up to 5 times to receive maximum £100 bonus. Min odds 1/2 (1.5). Exchange bets excluded. T&Cs apply.
