Who will win the 2016 Cheltenham Gold Cup?

Betfair Cheltenham Gold Cup Enhanced Odds Offers 18 March 2016

30/1 Cue Card to win the Gold Cup – £5 max stake

Cue Card is floating around the 4/1 mark at the time of writing and looks a very well-fancied runner with the punters, not least since his stablemate Thistlecrack obliterated the field in the World Hurdle to win by seven lengths with consummate ease.

There is obviously something that trainer Colin Tizzard has been doing well at his yard and those who think Cue Card can follow in Thistlecrack’s footsteps in the big one on Friday will jump at the chance to get odds of 30/1.

It should be noted that Cue Card also got the better of Vautour to win the King George VI at Kempton on Boxing Day, and given how well Vautour ran to storm to victory in the Ryanair Chase on Thursday, that certainly stands Cue Card in very good stead here.

30/1 Don Poli to win the Gold Cup – £5 max stake

Don Poli – hailing from Willie Mullins’ stable – is priced at around 9/2 in the standard odds, and he has been one of the longtime favourites for the Gold Cup. He won the RSA Chase at last year’s Festival by six lengths and won the Martin Pipe Conditional the year before, so it’s fair to say he has fine Festival form.

He wasn’t quite so impressive, despite winning, in the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown in December, and though he might have enough to challenge, we think he isn’t the most likely of this bunch to triumph as he lacks that certain something that some of the others possess.

14/1 Don Cossack to win the Gold Cup – £10 max stake

Don Cossack was only third in the Ryanair Chase at last year’s Festival but stormed to victory in the Melling Chase the following month, an astounding 26 lengths clear of second place Cue Card. He may well have challenged Cue Card in the King George had he not fallen with two to go (he was two lengths down at the time).

He’s had an easy win at Thurles since then, and given he’s beaten two of the other leading contenders, Cue Card (twice) and Djakadam, in the last year, he should certainly be there or thereabouts come the finish on Friday.

16/1 Djakadam to win the Gold Cup – £10 max stake

Willie Mullins’ Djakadam has been backed in to become the 3/1 favourite on the back of stablemate Vautour’s emphatic win on Thursday. It had been said that Vautour wasn’t performing so well in training – hence him dropping from a possible entry in the Gold Cup to the Ryanair Chase. But perhaps he didn’t look so good because his training partner, Djakadam, outshone him… meaning that Djakadam must be in top form! At least, that’s the feeling of the many punters who’ve since backed him.

He was almost successful in last year’s Gold Cup, of course, losing out to Coneygree by one and half lengths and he has every chance of going one better this time around. Falls at this course both in January and at the 2014 Festival in the JLT Novices’ Chase are a slight concern, but if the rumours of him bettering Vautour in training are true, if he makes it round he could be the one to beat!

So… decision time. With all those mentioned very well capable of winning the Gold Cup if things go for them on the day, we have to look at the value pick. And for us, that simply has to be the King George VI winner Cue Card at stupendously good odds of 30/1. Feel free to make up your own minds, of course, as all of these enhanced offers give you a very nice slice of value!
