The last year has certainly flown by, and before we know it we will all be celebrating Christmas and the New Year, however before we do there is one major horse race on the racing calendar that I am more than confident plenty of you out there will be planning having a bet on.
That is of course the BetVictor Gold Cup, and much like every other year it is the Cheltenham racecourse that is going to be staging that race, and there are certainly plenty of standout betting opportunities in that race, as you are about to discover.
The smart money is coming in for two horses in this race, and the first horse that is attracting plenty of ante post support is Siruh Du Lac who is currently chalked up as the 5/1 favourite at most betting sites.
The other horse that has been a firm second favourite to win this race for quite some time, and to be fair has one of the very best chance of winning it this year is Slate House, and you are going to be offered odds of around the 11/2 mark if you do bet on it right now.
Bag the Four Places Each-Way
I would also advise you to consider backing at least one horse each-way much more so if you fancy the chance of any of the other horses, for bookies like Coral are going to give you one quarter of the win odds and will be paying out to four places too this year.
If you haven’t yet signed up to Coral then now is a very good time to do just that as they are giving punters who click through to their website using our website links a high valued welcome bonus offer, so do read through the terms and conditions of that offer if you are interested in locking in some additional betting value.
Four Horses Worth an Each-Way Bet
You can back any horse each-way and with there being betting sites like Coral who are paying out to four places, you could lock in a profit when playing up to four different each-way bets of course.
The horses that may just fill one of the top four positions if the first and second favourites listed up above do not do so include the likes of Spiritofthegames at 7/1, and being the third favourite horse to win this race that horse is worth backing for sure.
Then you have horses such as Saint Calvados at 10/1 who may just have what it takes to fill one of the top four places in this race, and next in the betting you have both Us and Them at 11/1 and Count Meribel at 12/1.
As for the other horses running, if you do rate their chances I would advise you head on over to the Betfair betting exchange as you may find some much bigger odds being offered at that site than a booke9 will be offering you on any of the outsiders.
