Gold Cup News 2018
Things are warming up. The markets are in a state of movement. But which horses head the top of the Gold Cup 2018 ante-post betting?
Nicky Henderson looks primed to have a exceptional Cheltenham Festival. However, being fancied and winning are difference matters. Mighty Bite is presently 7/2f to take this Grade 1 Steeplechase. Unbeaten in his last five races when partnered by Nico De Boinville. This Irish-bred son of Scorpion has been a big improver since falling back in December 2016. This nine-year-old bay gelding has risen from an official rating of 148 to his present mark of 169. An intriguing contender to be respected.
If you are looking for experience and proven ability in the Gold Cup you may well be gambling on Native River going one better this year after a sterling effort when runner-up behind Sizing John. Beaten less than three lengths, Colin Tizzard's charge made light work of the opposition when winning readily at Newbury in February. This 6/1 chance could prove to be a worthy each-way bet.
It take a lot to win a Gold Cup. That title doesn't come easy and reason why Jessica Harrington's ten-year-old bay gelding is a powerful challenger. A disappointing return when favourite at Leoparstown brought a few question marks although that run was too bad to be true.
Sizing John receives great praise following his victory on Friday's Timico Gold Cup.
“Sizing John has a touch of class. He fits the profile of recent winners in that he is unexposed and comes here on a high. He knows how to battle and acts on the course. He showed brilliant stamina. Congratulations Sizing John.”
Harrington said: "I can't believe it. He jumped and travelled amazingly throughout the race. The fact that Robert said he was not going to take the inside path, but did otherwise was absolutely fantastic, this was definitely deserved.”
Another comment from a happy fan stated: "He was running over two miles, but it was his jockey, Robert, who said he would remain strong and determined.”

Don Cossack, the retired German bred Irish-trained racehorse, thrilled horse racing enthusiasts with amazing performances even during the last legs of his career as a race horse. The horse managed to win during his final appearance at the prestigious 2016 Cheltenham Gold Cup.
Don Cossack's performance was really special to Michael O’Leary, the Ryanair boss. He described this victory as a surreal experience. This the second time a horse belonging to O’Leary’s Gigginstown House Stud has managed to win the widely sought-after Cheltenham Gold Cup. What increased the importance of the 2016 win by Don Cossack even further is that this one happens to be the first time in a decade that a horse from Gigginstown House Stud has tasted victory at the Gold Cup. War of Attrition won the coveted race ten years back.
