Leading fancies set for Gold Cup showdown
By James Pugh
Coral Welsh National winner Le Beau Bai, who heads the betting at 6-1 with the sponsors, will face 19 rivals in Saturday’s 3m5½f contest.
He will be up against the top-weighted Tidal Bay, early Grand National faller West End Rocker plus the Jonjo O’Neill-trained Galaxy Rock, who was pulled up in last Saturday’s Coral Scottish National at Ayr.
Your Busy, Qianshan Leader, Pilgrims Lane, Upham Atom and Mumbles Head were not declared at the final confirmation stage on Friday.
The Henrietta Knight-trained eight-year-old will also face Wishfull Thinking, who returned to form when second to Finian’s Rainbow at Aintree two weeks ago.
Australia Day, Kirby’s Glen and Passato were not declared on Friday.
