On the face of it, it doesn't look a very competitive Gold Cup this year.

GC coming down to whether or not thistlecrack will last the distance. jumping fences certainly won't be the issue. but agree, could be a fairly tame fixture this year

COLIN TIZZARD said it was hard to know who could beat Thistlecrack at his King George-winning best, but revealed that Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup dark horse Alary is "bloody good" from what he had seen at home.

Of course - It doesn't bother me. I'll still be there on the Friday and if Thistlecrack bolts up then I'll be there cheering on a champion !

Moved to the UK in 2001 - No festival that year because of the foot and mouth.
Been to the festival every year since (as I've somehow managed to find myself still leaving over here!). Would never want to miss it ! Am fortunate, it's only 90 mins by train from where I am.

Obviously a bit early to be doing antepost bets for some, but Finian's Oscar looks a great bet at 4s in the Neptune

I backed him last Saturday and was impressed - The Tizzards obviously think a lot of him.
But he's short enough for me - Have to bear in mind that in the novice hurdle category, there are a number of horses who are yet to run over hurdles that could still very well have a say.

Go most years myself personally don't think you can beat the Tuesday and Wednesday! My favourite races would be the champion hurdle and the bumper!

Oh of course ya,far from a banker. But as you say, the Tizzards do rate him highly, the yard is in form, the horse himself has looked very impressive so far. Could be worth a few bob anyway

It's got a lot better the last 2 years - 3 years ago I didn't go on Gold Cup day because it had got far too busy but they've got a bit more sensible in terms of the number of tickets they sell and also the new stand helps a lot. Haven't struggled to get a beer and a bet the past 2 years.

think he's a terrible price myself, won a nothing Grade 1 and Tizzard horses seem to have the bookies running so they've gone over short on him, i'd be surprised if there's not something better in Ireland to beat him
