    Info PADDY POWER GOLD CUP TRENDS 2014

    The Paddy Power Gold Cup takes place on Saturday 15th November and is the highlight of Cheltenham’s Open meeting, which runs from the 14th to 16th November. Run over 2M 4½F, it’s a handicap chase which attracts some of the best staying chasers out there, having been won by Our Vic, Exotic Dancer, Imperial Commander and Al Ferof in recent years. In 2010 Long Run finished 3rd in this en route to winning the Gold Cup.

    Nigel Twiston-Davies (2-2-14) trained the winner in in 2008 & 2010 and a placed finisher in 2007 & 2009.
    Jonjo O’Neill (2-1-10) trained Exotic Dancer to win this in 2006 & John’s Spirt to win it last year.
    Paul Nicholls (1-3-20) saddled the winner & 3 places finishers in the last 10 years.
    Nicky Henderson (0-6-19), Phillip Hobbs (0-4-10) and Alan King (0-4-10) have all had multiple placed finishers since 2004.
    Irish based trainers (1-2-19) had a very poor recent record up until Tranquil Sea’s win in 2009, which was the first Irish success in the last since 1980.

    Price


    The favourite has a strong record in the race, winning this 5 times since 2000.
    Favourites (2-3-10) have gained 2 wins and 3 places from 10 runners since 2004 and show a very healthy level stakes profit of 2.00.
