2020 CHELTENHAM FESTIVAL GOLD CUP TIPS

Given everything I’ve listed above, Al Boum Photo looks a worthy favourite and I wouldn’t be shocked if Willie Mullins’ charge retained his title. Yet, both my head, heart and Cheltenham Festival betting offers are telling me LOSTINTRANSLATION is going to have a huge say in the matter and he’s going to be my solitary selection.

Lostintranslation won the Dipper on the New Course and ran Defi Du Seuil very close at the Festival 12 months ago. I can’t see the extra two-and-a-half-furlongs being a problem for a horse who’s shaped like a strong stayer on a number of occasions, and Lostintranslation boasts strong form on all kinds of ground. We haven’t seen the best of the this talented eight-year-old yet. I’m confident Lostintranslation’s crowing moment will come in the 2020 Cheltenham Gold Cup.

The Cheltenham Gold Cup

The Cheltenham Gold Cup is a Class A Grade 1 chase run over three miles and about two and a half furlongs. It is open to horses aged five years old and upwards and takes place on the new course at Cheltenham 3:30pm on Friday 13th March.

If the Festival is the most prestigious event in the National Hunt calendar, then the Gold Cup which features in all Cheltenham day 4 tips, has to be the most prestigious race. Whilst it used to be considered little more than a trial for the Grand National, as the importance of the Festival has grown, so has the significance of this race. It is now the event that everyone wants to win.

While there are six surrounding races on Friday at the Cheltenham Festival, the Gold Cup is what all attendees flock to Prestbury Park to watch on day four. Nothing in the world of horse racing can match the mystique and prestige of the Gold Cup, with the names of Golden Miller, Arkle, Best Mate and Kauto Star glistening on the famous trophy. 

Any chaser who is good enough to claim victory in the Cheltenham Gold Cup will hand their connections the biggest prize in National Hunt racing and guarantee themselves a place in the pantheon of horse racing’s greats.

We have plenty more 2020 Cheltenham Festival tips available, giving you unrivaled bets and advice for all four days of racing.
