Value in Each-Way Betting on Gold Cup Day

Cheltenham Festival concludes this Friday, and the highly anticipated Gold Cup race will take the spotlight to round off the week's events.

Trainer Willie Mullins aims to make history with Galopin Des Champs securing back-to-back victories in this prestigious race. The talented chaser is the clear favourite to clinch the Gold Cup title, although bookmakers have priced him accordingly. Betting enthusiasts might find value in BoyleSports' offer of enhanced places in races featuring 12 or more contenders.

BoyleSports is providing attractive odds of 1/5 for 4 places on each-way bets in races with 12 or more runners, and 1/5 for 5 places in races with 16 or more participants throughout the festival at Cheltenham. The Gold Cup lineup includes 12 declared horses, but Hewick's potential withdrawal due to challenging ground conditions might lead to BoyleSports reverting to 1/5 odds for 3 places.

Beyond Galopin Des Champs, who appears destined for a strong finish in the Gold Cup, several other contenders possess the potential to secure a place in the race. Grand National victor Corach Rambler stands out as a formidable contender for Friday's main event. With proven stamina for the Gold Cup distance and a stellar record on testing ground, Corach Rambler, priced at 20/1 by BoyleSports, offers each-way bettors a promising opportunity.

In the opening race, The Triumph Hurdle, BoyleSports' extra place feature enhances the appeal for each-way bets. Trainer Willie Mullins, aiming for his fourth win in five years, fields half of the 14 runners in this competitive race. Among his impressive lineup, Salvator Mundi stands out as a significant debutant, particularly after a close second to Triumph Hurdle favourite Sir Gino in a previous encounter.

Salvator Mundi's jockey, Brian Hayes, expressed confidence in the horse's abilities, further adding to the anticipation surrounding his debut under Mullins' guidance. Pied Piper emerges as another strong contender in the County Hurdle, with a commendable track record at Cheltenham and a proven ability to perform well under challenging conditions.

Lastly, the experienced chaser Shantou Flyer, priced at 33/1 by BoyleSports, is expected to make a noteworthy appearance in the St. James' Place Hunters Chase. Despite a preference for better ground conditions, Shantou Flyer's consistent track record and recent successes indicate a potential for yet another commendable performance at Cheltenham's prestigious event.
