The Paddy Power Gold Cup is the feature race at Cheltenham’s November Meeting. That’s right folks, our fearless leader’s put his name to one of the season’s biggest contests once again!
A Premier Handicap worth a cool £160,000, the Paddy Power Gold Cup is run over 2m4½f on the Old Course at the home of National Hunt racing in Britain and a whole host of talented jumpers including Cheltenham Festival winners Stage Star and The Real Whacker are set to take their chance.
Last year’s renewal was a thriller as Ga Law chinned French Dynamite to land the top prize of £90,032 and the pair went on to finish fifth and fourth respectively in the subsequent Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
You can run the rule over our Paddy Power Gold Cup odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.
