BetVictor Gold Cup Preview

Guitar Pete – 25-1 Ladbrokes and Betfair Sportsbook.

Twenty Two horses remain in contention for Saturday’s Betvictor Gold Cup at Cheltenham headed by top weight Top Gamble, a top price 25-1 with bet365 and Skybet. The Ditcheat stable of Paul Nicholls is sure to be strongly represented with three possible contenders – Le Prezien (12-1 Betfred), Romain De Senam (10-1 generally) and Clan Des Obeaux (25-1 Skybet and Paddy Power).

The ante-post market is currently headed by Kylemore Lough (7-1 generally) who will be having his first start for Harry Fry after leaving the stable of Kerry Lee, while the best backed horse over the last week has been the Irish challenger Tully East (9-1 Paddy Power), with Alan Fleming’s seven-year-old hoping to follow up his victory in the Close Brothers Novices’ Handicap Chase at this year’s Cheltenham festival.

Foxtail Hill (12-1 Betfred), Starchitect (12-1 Ladbrokes) and Double Treasure (16-1 Paddy Power) will all go into the race with recent wins under their belt while both Ballyalton (16-1 Betvictor) and Gold Present (12-1 bet365) look well-in on their best form. The selection however is northern raider Guitar Pete from the stable of Nicky Richards.

The popular grey Man Alive won the race for Richards’ father Gordon W back in 1979 and history could repeat itself 38 years later courtesy of the grey son of Dark Angel who will be having his eighth start for Richards since joining the stable from Sandra Hughes in Ireland back in April. Third behind Tiger Roll in the 2014 Triumph Hurdle the seven-year-old went on to win a Grade 1 at Aintree on his next start but since going over the bigger obstacles has struggled to repeat that form, that was until his most recent outing when the mount of Ryan Day thrashed a decent field at Wetherby earlier this month.

Guitar Pete could not have been more impressive in beating the Nicholls’ runner Sametegal at the Yorkshire venue and despite a hike of 7lb for that seven length victory still creeps into Saturday’s valuable contest off a featherweight of 10st 1lb and with the Richards’ stable in excellent form of late rates a good each-way bet at the 25-1 available with Ladbrokes and Betfair Sportsbook.
