It really has been a golden era for the Gold Cup over the past few years with the likes of Kauto Star, Denman and Long Run claiming memorable wins in the big race. The rivalries between the big names and trainers have served to boost the popularity of the race and that looks set to continue in 2016. The current hero is of course Coneygree who claimed a famous win last year for Mark Bradstock but he will miss the defence of his title having picked up an injury.
See Cheltenham Gold Cup Form Guide for the background and performances of the main contenders for the 2016 Gold Cup including Don Cossack and Don Poli among others.
Cheltenham Gold Cup Runners and Riders
The best chasers of the season will head to Cheltenham for the showpiece Gold Cup and all the connections of the well fancied horses will be looking to get the bets jockeys for their horses. The final list of 2016 Gold Cup Runners will not be known until the 48 hour stage but we can expect to see the likes of Cue Card and Djakadam to head the field.
Other potential runners in the big race in 2016 include the talented Don Poli who was the winner of the RSA Chase, while Don Cossack is tipped for a big season this year in Gold Cup company and could be a major player.
Gold Cup Trial Races 2016
There is a tried and tested route towards the Gold Cup for all of the main contenders in the betting and we will be following each of them through the season. 2012 winner Synchronised went over to Ireland at Christmas to win the Lexus Chase before heading to Cheltenham and that race in particular is always one to watch. Perhaps the most prestigious of the Cheltenham Gold Cup Trials is the King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day. Over the past few years we have seen both Kauto Star and Long Run win on Boxing Day before going to Cheltenham to win the Gold Cup and no doubt we will see a number of Festival hopefuls take their chance once again this season.
Punters will be able to follow all of the big races right through until the Gold Cup itself in March to help them make sense of a competitive betting heat, the last big trial race in February is the Denman Chase at Newbury and that will be the last chance for connections to get a run into their Gold Cup hopefuls.
