Cheltenham Gold Cup Betting Preview & Tips
Day 4 – Friday 13th March 2020 – 3.30pm – Cheltenham Gold Cup – Grade 1 – 3m2f110y
The Cheltenham Gold Cup is the feature race of the Cheltenham Festival, and for the 2020 edition, we should expect a cracking contest. All the first five in the betting are currently trading at around 7/1 or less and are from yards that have won the Cheltenham Gold Cup before.
Santini is currently trading, at the time of writing, with Al Boum Photo, who is attempting to become the first horse to have secured consecutive Gold Cups since Best Made did a hat-trick in 2003, 2004 and 2005.
Santini has been getting more support since getting back to form in the Cotswold Chase on Cheltenham’s Festival Trials Day. In addition to that, it has been a sensational start to the Festival for his trainer Nicky Henderson who has won the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle and the Champion Hurdle on day one. After the joint-favourites, other four challengers are at a single figure odds. Those are the likes of Delta Work, Lostintranslation, Kemboy and Clan Des Obeaux.
Our Bet: AL BOUM PHOTO
This is going to be a proper battle as always in the Gold Cup, but we believe AL BOUM PHOTO have what it takes to win this trophy for the second year’s running since Best Mate. Stablemate Kemboy might in the mix after bouncing back to form while Santini will be the main threat to our selection.
Our Verdict: Al Boum Photo

Gold Cup History
The Cheltenham Gold Cup is one of the most important races of the National Hunt season. It takes place on the Friday of the Cheltenham Festival. This hugely popular horse race is run over three miles, two furlongs and 110 yards. There are a total of twenty-two jumps that runners have to negotiate before a challenging climb up the Cheltenham hill.
If you consider non-handicap jumps, the Gold Cup is the most prestigious prize with around the half million mark. Top winners have landed this glorious race over the years like Arkle, Mill House, Best Mate, Kauto Star and many more. Kauto Star has become the first horse to retain the title he won in 2009. It is, however, Golden Miller the most successful Gold Cup horse in the history with five wins achieved in the 1930s. Pat Taaffe is the top jockey. He has won the race four times in the 1960’s. Top Dreaper is the leading trainer in the Gold Cup history with a total of five wins.
