    Info BET365 GOLD CUP TRENDS 2015

    The Bet365 Gold Cup (formerly the Whitbread Gold Cup), which takes place at Sandown on Saturday 25th April, is a grade 3 handicap chase run over 3 miles 5½ furlongs and it signals the end of the British national hunt season. It is always a hugely competitive race and history tells us that it takes a special horse to carry a big weight to victory in this.

    Below we take a look at the trends for the past 10 years:

    Age (Win-Place-Runners)
    6yo: 0-1-6
    7yo: 2-6-23
    8yo: 3-5-39
    9yo: 1-4-42
    10yo: 1-6-37
    11yo: 3-4-19
    12yo+: 0-2-8
    horses aged 6 to 8: 5-12-68
    horses aged 9+: 5-16-106
    Younger horses have a better record proportional to the number of runners, with those aged 6 to 8 winning half of the last 10 renewals from less than 40% of the total runners.
    Of the 5 winners aged 9+, 3 had previously won a graded chase, 1 had won the Grade B Troytown Chase & was 2nd in the Irish Grand National on previous start and the other had won the Grimthorpe Chase on previous run.

    Breeding
    Irish bred: 5-9-89
    French bred: 4-16-53
    British bred: 1-3-29
    French bred horses have won 4 of last 10 and filled 20 of 38 places since 2005 and they represented only 30.4% of the total runners.
    Progeny of Dom Alco: 217 (1-1-3)
    Progeny of Flemensfirth: 41P (1-1-3)

    Weight (Win-Place-Runners)
    horses carrying 11-0 or more: 3-8-55
    horses carrying 10-6 to 10-13: 4-12-54
    horses carrying 10-0 to 10-5: 3-4-46
    horses carrying 9-13 or less: 0-4-19
    7 of 10 winners carried 10-7 or more from approximately 57.2% of total runners.
    horses carrying 10-7 or more: 7-16-100
    horses carrying 10-6 or less: 3-12-74
    Top Weight: F030P4P10U (1-2-10)
    The 2 top weights to be placed were ridden by 7lb claimers, while Tidal Bay, in 2012 has been the only horse to carry top weight to victory since 2005, he was a multiple grade 1 winner previously.
    The only other 2 horses to carry 11-6+ to victory in past 30 years were Life Of A Lord (winner of the Galway Plate & Kerry National earlier that season) in 1996 and the great Desert Orchid in 1988.

    horses rated 146 or higher: 4-5-38
    horses rated 132 to 145: 6-20-114
    horses rated 131 or lower: 0-3-22
    8 of the last 9 winners were officially rated 135 higher, they have also filled 28 of 34 places since 2006.
    horses racing from out of the handicap: 2-4-26

    Philip Hobbs (2-4-12) trained the winner in 2006 and 2008 and has seen 6 of his 12 runners make the frame.
    Paul Nicholls (1-7-25) saddled Ad Hoc to win this in 2001 & 2003 and also Tidal Bay to win it in 2012.
    Nicky Henderson (1-2-6) won it with Hadrian’s Approach in 2014 and also saddled 2 places from his other 5 runners. All 6 of his runners finished in first 7.
    Henry Daly (1-1-5) saddled the winner in 2013 and the runner-up in 2009.
    Willie Mullins (0-1-1) has seen his last 2 runners finish 5th and 3rd.
    Irish trained runners (2-3-15) have won 2 of last 10 runnings from 8.6% of total runners.

    Price
    8 of 10 winners were priced between 6/1 and 16/1
    No strong trends on trends on the prices, though there have been a few upsets recently with winners at 20/1 and 25/1 in past 7 years.
    Favourites (0-6-14) have failed to win this in past 10 year, level stakes loss of 10.00.

    Summary:
    Based on the trends from the past 10 years you are looking for a horse:
    - French bred
    - Aged 6 to 8 (or aged 9+ that has won a graded chase)
    - Carrying 10-7 to 11-5
    - Officially rated 135 to 154
    - Ran in the past 50 days
    - Finished in first 6 on last completed chase start
    - Had last run at Cheltenham Festival, in a grand national or over hurdles
    - Ran in a race at 2015 Cheltenham Festival
    - Previously run 10 or more times over fences
    - Run 9 or fewer handicap chases (or placed in this race last year)
    - Won no more than 2 handicap chases in their career
    - Run at least 3 times this season (winning no more than 1 chase)
    - Won over 3M+
    - Won a class 2 or higher chase worth 20K+
    - Trained by Philip Hobbs, Paul Nicholls, Nicky Henderson, Henry Daly or in Ireland
    - Avoid the favourite
