If you’re a regular listener to From The Horse’s Mouth then you’ll know Ruby Walsh is hot on Al Boum Photo’s chances of reclaiming the Cheltenham Gold Cup after the dramatic Christmas period.


The two-time winner placed a creditable third behind Minella Indo and A Plus Tard in last year’s renewal when going for the hat-trick. He was far from prominent in the early betting for this season’s race but a comfortable victory on his seasonal reappearance at Tramore coupled with Minella Indo pulling up in the King George VI Chase and A Plus Tard getting chinned by Galvin in the Savills Chase drastically changed the antepost market.

A man of his word, Ruby has revealed he put his money where his mouth is and placed an antepost wager ahead on Al Boum Photo to win the big one at Cheltenham.

Ruby Walsh:

“I had an each-way bet on Al Boum Photo for the Gold Cup after watching the King George and the Savills Chase at Christmas.

I think it’s a wide-open contest and he was overpriced.

“The sum total of my gambling will normally be Lucky 15s, trebles and doubles. I guess I’m like every other person looking for that life-changing moment.”
