The Gold Cup is the Blue Riband event for stayers on the Flat and takes pride of place at the heart of the biggest race on the Royal Ascot schedule.
It dates all the way back to 1807 and is a proper test of stamina and speed over 2m4f. Some of the biggest names to have graced the game are on the honours board and the latest renewal boasts a record prize pot worth £600,000.
Kyprios edged out Mojo Star and Stradivarius in last year’s thrilling renewal but Aidan O’Brien’s superstar is set to miss the chance to defend his crown due to injury.
You can run the rule over our 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.

Gold Cup 2023 betting
Gold Cup odds are on paddypower.com and prices for the leading contenders can be seen on our snazzy widgets below.
Coltrane is the favourite with Paddy Power for the Gold Cup after a career-best performance when landing the Sagaro Stakes at Ascot in early May.
St Leger hero Eldar Eldarov is next in the betting following an encouraging seasonal reappearance in the Yorkshire Cup and with the form over his Doncaster Classic win looking hot.
Emily Dickinson is also prominent in our market despite a deeply disappointing run in the Levmoss Stakes last time out.
