Get the latest price boosts for Gold Cup day at the Cheltenham Festival
We’re gearing up for the final day of the Cheltenham Festival, with the Gold Cup taking centre stage at 3.20.
The Gold Cup is set to be a fascinating renewal, with Silvianiaco Conti having been a long-term favourite for the race, although the Paul Nicholls horse is on the drift and Djakadam has been the subject of a big gamble.
Indeed, our resident racing tipster is backing the Willie Mullins charge to oblige in the Festival’s blue riband event, with Rich Ricci’s horses flying this week and it was the turn of Vautour to win impressively on Thursday.
The day of racing kicks off with the Triumph Hurdle at 1.30 and the bookies are lining up with some excellent offers for what should be a quality event.
