Cue Card Takes Over As Punchestown Gold Cup Favourite
Following the withdrawal of Don Cossack from the Punchestown Gold Cup, Cue Card has taken over the head of the betting at 1/2.
Don Cossack was the 5/4 favourite for the race before a tendon injury saw him ruled out. Colin Tizzard’s Cue Card is now the frontrunner having been cut into 1/2 from 7/4.
Willie Mullins’ duo Djakadam and Don Poli both feature next at 6/1 having shortened in from 12/1 and 10/1 respectively.
Gigginstown House Stud’s Road To Riches is behind stablemate Don Poli at 10/1 after being cut in from 14/1. Carlingford Lough has also shortened off the back of Don Cossack’s withdrawal and is now on offer at 14/1 from 16/1.
Remaining unchanged for the Punchestown Gold Cup are Smashing and FOXROCK, who are both available at 25/1.
A number of punters are now sitting on top of some tasty bets as Cue Card was available at 2/1 and 7/4 before the withdrawal of Don Cossack.
