Now just a few months away anticipation is continuing to build ahead of the 2018 Cheltenham festival. The key race of the national hunt calendar is of course the Gold cup and this year’s showcase event looks set to have an extremely open look to it. The latest Gold cup betting has the King George winner Might Bite as the current 3/1 to follow up his festival victory from last year. Might Bite is an improving course and distance winner so will be expected to go close in this competitive renewal.
The likely second favourite going in is last year’s victor Sizing John. The horse proved a revelation last season following the step up in distance and if on his A game is likely to take all the beating. However he failed to fire over the Christmas period so now has questions to answer. Another likely candidate could be the dark horse Coney Island. Having missed last year’s meeting when fancied for the RSA he only appeared recently but put in a very eye catching performance and is now the likely win in many people’s books. Check out the quiz below and test your knowledge on some of the horses that will be heading to Cheltenham in just a few months’ time.
