Take 3/1 on either Bobs Worth or Silviniaco Conti winning Gold Cup
Given that all of the last 10 winners of the Cheltenham Gold Cup have come from the first three in the betting, it is virtually impossible not to want to take advantage of Coral’s latest offer for new customers.
Coral are offering 3/1 on EITHER Bobs Worth or Silviniaco Conti the two favourites in the betting – winning the 2014 Gold Cup, to a maximum stake of £10.
New customers have already been rewarded once at the Festival, with those to back Quevega at an enhanced 4/1 in the money.
However, for new customers that missed out on this successful offer, the wait is now over for another!
Bobs Worth is not only the defending Gold Cup champion, but he has never previously been beaten at Cheltenham, tasting success on all previous five visits. This is a record that very much mimics Quevega from earlier at the Festival.
The favourite has won the Cheltenham Gold Cup six times in the last decade too.
One negative against Bobs Worth is that no horse since Best Mate in 2004 has triumphed in the Gold Cup in successive years.
But the good news for this offer is that if Bobs Worth does fail, as the likes of Kauto Star, Denman and Long Run have, then Silviniaco Conti is the most likely to take advantage.
His victory in the King George on Boxing Day was impressive and of the last seven horses to attempt this particular double, four have been successful in this quest.
Paul Nicholls has also been responsible for training three of the last seven Gold Cup winners and this adds a further tick in the column of a possible victory for Silviniaco Conti.
