Who will you be on in the Cheltenham Gold Cup?

Who will you be on in the Cheltenham Gold Cup?

By The UK Horse Racing Tipster

I ask because everyone talks about value and value in my opinion is in the eye of the bettor. For example if the horse is an odds on favourite of the class of Faugheen who will only lose if he fell then some people would see the 1/10 price as value. However others are always looking for larger priced runners in the hope they will beat the favourite.

Remember though, favourites win 33% of all races (and 50% when odds on) for a reason. Therefore you need a good reason to oppose a strong favourite.

Therefore I am asking are you going to be on Cue Card in the Gold Cup at 5/1? In my opinion he offers value, has beaten one of the joint favourites already this year, plus he has just had a wind operation.

You can read about why pre-knowledge of wind operations is very useful here, and who can forget the recently operated on Knockara Beau the 66/1 outside winner of the Cleeve Hurdle who beat Big Buck's on his long waited come back the other year?

Colin Tizzard, along with the other 20+ trainers on From The Stables, gives our members knowledge about such operations, and it is great to have a piece of key info up your sleeve that other punters may not.

Cue Card's New Tactics

Also we have seen that Cue Card has been running very differently this season. The jockey/trainer have changed their tactics from the usual front running where the horse would often lead from the front the whole race, but then tire at the end, to sitting back and saving the horses energy for the last 2 furlongs where it can be put to good use.

This was shown to good effect in his double beating of Silviniaco Conti this year in the Betfair Chase and the King George VI Chase on Boxing Day, plus he beat the Gold Cup joint favourite Vautour in that Christmas event.

In one of the races he didn't even use a whip when he rolled past the then leader at the end.

In both races Silviniaco Conti made the running but didn't have the stamina to keep it out unlike his recent win in the Betfair Chase (Ascot).

However in contrast to previous years Cue Card sat back for and saved his energy for the last two furlongs and this change in tactic seems to be working for him this year.

He is a strong horse so has plenty of stamina and now the team have decided to keep it to use at the finish instead of setting the pace and front running the whole way like he used to I think he is some value at 5/1 for the Gold Cup.

What do you think?

Will you be on Don Cossack, Don Poli, Vautour (if they all run), Cue Card or someone else?
