Cheltenham Gold Cup betting preview
17 Mar 2017 | Oddschecker.com 
It is Gold Cup Day at Cheltenham on Friday and it seems Oddschecker punters are divided as to who will win the prestigious race. Willie Mullins’ Djakadam is the current market leader and has been the most popular selection on site with 27% of users in the last 48 hours putting their money on the 8yo to give his illustrious trainer a first win in the race.

Runner-up in both the last two runnings of the race, he also accounts for 16% of all ante-post bets through Oddschecker, the most of any of the runners taking their place in today’s field.

Standing in the way of both Mullins and Djakadam will be the two Colin Tizzard contenders Cue Card and Native River. The former is one of the most popular horses in training and has amassed over £1million in his career to date including two Festival wins.

14.4% of ante-post stakes have been for the evergreen 11yo but he’s only the third most popular horse with users in the last 48 hours. At the other end of the career spectrum is his stablemate Native River.

The 7yo hasn’t put a foot wrong all season in landing both the Hennessy Gold Cup and Welsh Grand National, improving with every run. He had the ideal prep when winning Newbury in February and 26% pf all stakes through the site have been on the proven stayer.
