Most punters will have some idea as to who they fancy for the Gold Cup long before race time and therein we recommend they place their bets as early as possible with a bookmaker that offers ‘Best Odds Guaranteed’ as standard. That’s because, the Cheltenham Gold Cup betting market is always subject to massive market fluctuation in the frenzied 45 minutes prior to off time.

Nicky Henderson and Barry Geraghty have enjoyed great success in the Triumph Hurdle winning three times in the past eight years.  And that record can be stretched further with Charli Parcs, a French import, set to give owner JP McManus back-to-back Triumph Hurdle wins if his decisive juvenile hurdle win at Kempton over the Christmas period is anything to go by.

The Gold Cup looked a proverbial penalty-kick for the impressive King George winner Thistlecrack until his surprise defeat to Many Clouds in the Cotswold Chase over course and distance in late January.  But the nine-year-old is still a novice chaser and has bundles of scope.  Furthermore the ground is sure to be faster on Cheltenham Gold Cup Day 2017 which should see him in a better light.

On the Fringe landed last season’s Foxhunters Chase here at the Cheltenham Festival and he looks capable of going in again.  Raced twice since that victory – winning at the Aintree Fox Hunters Chase and the Punchestown Festival Hunters Chase – he is a real champion in this sphere. It is an amazing treble and one he also bagged in 2015!
