2013 Cheltenham Gold Cup Betting Update

The 2013 Cheltenham Gold Cup will not be run until the 15th of March but already betting for the main event of the Cheltenham Festival has started to heat up.

Nicky Henderson-trained Bobs Worth is currently on top of the 2013 Cheltenham Gold Cup betting market at Bet365 Bet365 and is priced at odds of 3/1.

The son of Bob Back won the Grade 1 RSA Chase at last year’s Cheltenham Festival but connections have him primed for the biggest race of the festival this year.

Bobs Worth returned to racing with a strong win in the Hennessy Gold Cup Chase where he defeated Tidal Bay and First Lieutenant.

Sir Des Champs remains on the second line of Cheltenham Gold Cup betting despite not producing his best form this season.

The seven-year-old finished five lengths behind Flemenstar in the Punchestown Chase before finishing fourth in the Lexus Chase.

Sir Des Champs is entered for the Grade 1 Hennessy Gold Cup on Saturday and will need to show an improved effort if he is to remain among the leading Gold Cup contenders.

Popular jumper Long Run is on the next line of betting at odds of 7/1.

The 2012 Denman Chase winner has been in good form this campaign finishing second behind Silviniaco Conti in the Betfair Chase before winning the King George VI Chase in a thrilling finish.

Silviniaco Conti, currently available at odds of 7/1 in the Cheltenham Gold Cup betting market at Bet365 Bet365, will have his final run before the Cheltenham Festival in the Denman Chase this weekend.

The Paul Nicholls-trained gelding is on a three race winning streak having won the Mildmay Novices’ Chase, Charlie Hall Chase and Betfair Chase in 2012.

The son of Dom Alco is the favourite in the 2013 Denman Chase betting market at Bet365 Bet365.

You can get all the best antepost odds for every race during the Cheltenham Festival at Bet365 Bet365.
