2017 Gold Cup tip - DJAKADAM (4/1, bet365
Willie Mullins bounced back to form on Thursday and his team will be confident that Djakadam can land the 2017 Cheltenham Gold Cup on Friday (due off 15.30). The superstar chaser has finished second in the race in the last two seasons, chasing home Coneygree and the mighty Don Cossack. There is nothing of that quality in this year's line up and connections have been bullish about his return to Prestbury Park for some time.
With Ruby Walsh in the saddle and with conditions set to suit, Djakadam rates one of the best bets of the week.
