Bobs Worth heads Gold Cup betting as 11 runners are declared

Bobs Worth is the 11-4 favourite with Coral for Friday’s Gold Cup, following the final declarations for the Cheltenham show piece. Sir Des Champs is the 10-3 second favourite ahead of Silviniaco Conti at 7-2, and the 2011 winner Long Run is 5-1.

“Although only 11 have been declared, Friday’s Gold Cup is a top class and highly competitive renewal and while Bobs Worth has headed the market since his Hennessy win, any one of the first three in the betting could be sent off favourite with Sir Des Champs sure to be popular with Willie Mullins supporters and Silviniaco Conti having the in-form Ruby Walsh on board,” commented Nicola McGeady, Coral’s Nicola McGeady.
