All eyes will be on the Cheltenham racecourse this weekend, for that is the racecourse that is staging the BetVictor Gold Cup race, which is the featured race of the weekend, and I am confident that plenty of you out there will be betting on that race.
If that is the case and you are now trying to work out just which horse to back in that race, then please do read on, for below you are going to find out just which horses have been backed on the early betting markets and that should help you decide just which horse to back yourself.
You may simply want to back the favourite to win this race this year, well just making it into the top spot on most bookies betting markets is Siruh Du Lac and the odds readily on offer at most bookies sites on that horse are 5/1.
I have seen plenty of pundits and tipsters raving about the chance of the current second favourite, and that horse is Slate House at 11/2, if punters do latch onto the very obvious chance of that horse, then those odds could reduce even more and that horse could very easily become the new favourite to win this race, so there is another horse for you to consider backing too.
Looking at the current ante post odds on the BetVictor Gold Cup, you may be a bit more inclined to bet on one or more horses each-way, rather than pick out just one horses to win the race outright, as this isn’t looking straightforward. If you do, there are some decent each-way betting terms being offered by many betting sites.
Take for example the Coral betting site, they are going to give you one quarter of the win odds being paid out to four not three places on this race this year, so they are the bookie you should be placing any each-way bets you fancy placing on this race with.
Bets Horses to Back Each-Way
I have picked out four horses that I do feel have a fair chance of getting places, and there are some decent odds being offered to punters on each of them right now, with the first one being Spiritofthegames, who does have a very good chance of being placed and its odds right now are 7/1.
Moving onto Saint Calvados, that horse does have some decent form figures and a good jockey scheduled to ride it this years and as such plenty of you out there will be tempted to take your chances betting on it each way much more so when you discover its win odds right now are 10/1.
A couple of other horses that may or may not appeal to you, but horses that do have some big odds attached to them right now include Us and Them at 11/1 and Count Meribel at 12/1, either of which with a tad of luck in running pay just get placed this year.
