Cheltenham Gold Cup Day Betting: Cue Card To Bring the House Down with Paddy Power

Bet on Cheltenham Festival

Betting Tip: Cue Card to Win Gold Cup Day 7/2 with Paddy Power

There will not be a dry eye in the house if Cue Card wins the 2017 Cheltenham Gold Cup at 3.30pm Friday, where it is the 17th of March and thus, St Patrick’s Day!

And quite the day in store, which starts off at 1.30pm with the traditional JCB Triumph Hurdle. But there is only one race on everyone’s mind on Gold Cup Friday and a certain 11-year-old classy veteran can raise the roof.

For a start, Cue Card is the highest rated horse in the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup, clear of stablemate Native River by 2lb and other chief market rival Djakadam by 5lb, who has a rating of 165.

When Cue Card puts it all together and produces his absolute best form, he is worth every pound of 170 and certainly one of the best chasers of a generation.

Having missed the 2014 and 2015 Cheltenham Festivals after winning the Ryanair in 2013, Colin Tizzard’s superstar went to the Gold Cup last year in the form of his life.

In many way, the mark of a truly great horse is their ability to bounce back from adversity and despite suffering many a niggling injury, Cue Card’s CV is a simply a list as long as your arm of top class Grade 1 victories.

In the Gold Cup last year, Cue Card was travelling like a demon under Paddy Brennan when he came down at the second last fence to the deflated gasps of the crowd.

He was OK, but a winter-long preparation was down the pan in an instant. He bounced back in typical Cue Card style by winning the Betfred Aintree Bowl by nine lengths from Don Poli, with Djakadam a further eight lengths back in third.

It was a staggering return to form just 3 weeks later and despite being beaten at Wetherby and Kempton later in 2016, his performance at Ascot last month suggests he retains all of his ability. If he jumps around without mishap, he is sure to be hard to beat. Sign up at Paddy Power and take advantage of this 7/2 Cheltenham free bet.
