2018 Cheltenham Gold Cup Betting Update PT 1

Things are well underway for the 2018 Cheltenham Gold Cup to kick off in just a couple of months as the feature 3m4f contest over fences is set to kick off festival season in a big way. This year’s iteration of the Cheltenham Gold Cup appears to be one of the most fascinating in quite some time and there are a lot of punters getting into the ante post markets early on to give themselves a bit more leeway when it comes time for the big race in March.

There are two standout contenders who get just a slim edge on the rest of the competition and you’ll find that the talented Might Bite remains the top choice according to a number of the bookmakers since they expect him to keep his great run of form going.

Expect that the winner of the King George typically goes on to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup, or at least emerge as one of the genuine leading fancies to take the win in the race.

Might Bite was also able to take on a listed contest to kick off his season and he really emerged as a powerful player in the National Hunt scene last year. He was able to conquer the RSA Chase over the old course at Cheltenham last year and you can expect that his Cheltenham Gold Cup run will be just as good.

It’s also worth noting that he was able to capture a victory at Aintree as well shortly after that big win in the RSA Chase. Over the past few years we have seen many National Hunt superstars emerge on the novices circuit and then have a very successful run at the Cheltenham Gold Cup circuit the following year. We expect Might Bite to be no different.
