Tizzard Pair Take Over Gold Cup Betting
Cheltenham Gold Cup
News broke on Tuesday lunchtime that Gold Cup favourite Thistlecrack will miss the rest of the season after sustaining a tendon injury.
As a result, his stablemates Native River and Cue Card now head the betting at 3/1 with the Willie Mullins trained Djakadam, who was runner up in 2015 and 2016, next in the betting at 5/1.
It’s then 8/1 about the Gordon Elliott trained Outlander with Irish Gold Cup winner Sizing John priced at 10/1 alongside Empire of Dirt.
From this morning onwards, punters have been able to bet on all races at this year’s Festival knowing that they will receive their money back should their antepost selection fail to race at the Prestbury Park venue next month.
