Cheltenham Gold Cup Odds 2023

The Cheltenham Gold Cup is the pinnacle of jumps racing in Britain and Ireland and is the biggest race of Festival week. Last year’s winner A Plus Tard pulled up on his only start since his victory last year but will have been minded for this race and could bounce back. 

Minella Indo won the race in 2021 and was second in 2022. He also landed the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle and finished second in a Grade 1 novice chase at the Festival. His record at Cheltenham warrants the utmost respect, and he can’t be ruled out. 

Galopin Des Champs has been the favourite for this race for most of the last twelve months and looked a star in the making when running away with the Turners before his fall last year. However, he is back on the winning trail this season and will be extremely hard to beat if his stamina holds out.

Cheltenham Gold Cup Odds and Entries 2023

This looks like an exciting renewal of the blue ribband event in jumps racing, with plenty of Grade 1 winning form being brought into the race.  Galopin Des Champs is the talking horse of the race but won’t have it all his own way and will need to be at his best to give Willie Mullins and the Irish another winner in the races. 

Bravemansgame is yet to show his best form at Cheltenham but was impressive when winning the King George at Kempton in December and is well worth his chance in this contest. His trainer and jockey combination will have had their confidence boosted by the victory of Stage Star on Thursday. 

Henry de Bromhead brings former race winners Minella Indo and A Plus Tard back to the race and a track where they both have excellent records. They could be vulnerable to less exposed rivals now, but their presence makes this a Gold Cup field to savour. 

Noble Yeats was a surprise winner of the Grand National at Aintree last season, but he does have proven stamina for this test and is not without a chance if able to stay with them on the final circuit.

Betting on the Cheltenham Gold Cup

The Cheltenham Gold Cup is the ultimate prize in steeplechasing and provides the climax of the Cheltenham Festival meeting. The roll of honour includes jumping legends Golden Miller, Arkle, Best Mate and Kauto Star. Al Boum Photo (2019, 2020) ended the long wait for leading Irish Trainer Willie Mullins to claim the most coveted race in National Hunt racing. Henry De Bromhead has won the last two renewals with Rachael Blackmore famously riding A Plus Tard to victory in 2022.

The famous uphill finish has found out many top chasers in Britain and Ireland over the years. The Cheltenham Gold Cup betting 2023 has Galopin Des Champs as clear favourite, such an unlucky faller in the Turners Novices Chase here twelve months’ ago. The favourite has won five of the last twelve Gold Cups including A Plus Tard at 3-1 last year. The longest priced winner during that period was 20-1 chance Lord Windermere in 2014.

The Irish Gold Cup and the Savills Chase at Leopardstown have been the best guide for a bet on the Cheltenham Gold Cup in recent years. The Brown Advisory Chase also has a good record of producing Gold Cup winners. Horses aged seven and eight have won nine of the last ten renewals.

Gold Cup News

All the talk going into the biggest race of the week has been about Galopin Des Champs. He is unbeaten when completing over fences, with his only defeat coming when falling with the race at his mercy at the Turners Novices Chase. He still needs to prove himself over the extra 2 furlongs but looks to have the class. 

A Plus Tard and Minella Indo are former winners trained by Henry de Bromhead but do not appear to be at the peak of their powers.  Another big story in this race is that current Grand National hero Noble Yeats takes his chance, and he does have proven stamina at this distance.
