Cheltenham Gold Cup 2014 - Friday, 14th March
The World Hurdle is the highlight on the Day 3 card of the the Cheltenham Festival and it is a race that over the past few years in paritcular has grown in stature, there has been one or two superstar champion of the world Hurdle and we have one in Big Buck's at the moment. The Paul Nicholls trained horse has won the race four times already but after mising the race last season through injury he is back looking for number five.
That has left the betting wide open wiith the likes of At Fishers Cros and Annie Power being well backed to run well. Annie Power has a massive reputation and could well start the race as the favourite at the Festival.
