Cheltenham Festival: Gold Cup betting preview


RACING anorak Graeme Johnston (@GraemeJ_83) takes a look at the headline act of the Cheltenham Festival, Friday afternoon's Gold Cup.

Gold Cup | Friday 13th March 2019, 15:30 | ITV1

The Gold Cup is shaping up to be one of the most competitive renewals in years with plenty of top class course form on offer. My opinion has changed on a few occasions but the longer it goes on the more my eyes are drawn to one I didn't expect to be.
Santini (9/2 William Hill) is making his third visit to the Festival and so far his record reads 3-2. However, this year he has shaped like a proper stayer and this is his holy grail. His preparation this year is better than ever and though he maybe isn't the classiest in the field I think he may grind out victory here.

I grew up watching Hearts games with my dad and playing football at every opportunity so betting on it was the logical next step! Football coupons became a Saturday ritual and it introduced me into the world of horse racing. I started watching it on a regular basis, and after Galileo's Derby win in 2001 I was hooked. I follow both flat and national hunt racing attending the northern meetings when possible.
