2018 Cheltenham Gold Cup Betting Update PT 2

As it currently stands, punters can lock in a wager on Might Bite at a price anywhere between a 3/1 and 4/1 margin.

Last year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Sizing John is still relatively well-fancied for the race again this year - coming in as the second shortest price in the current ante post market - but you have to wonder whether he will be able to bounce back from the disappointing seventh place that he exhibited in his last race when he ran at Leopardstown.

Campaigned in Ireland once again, Sizing John was eased on the run-in on the last race with reports of a clinical abnormality after the contest being the chief excuse for his poor form. Prior to that he had been doing just as well as he did last year - capturing the John Durkan Memorial - which is one of the best early season Grade 1 races in Ireland.

It will be interesting to see how Sizing John handles the rest of the season and whether he will actually attempt another run prior to the kick-off of the Cheltenham Festival itself.

You will find Sizing John trading at a price of around 11/2 all the way up to an 8/1 listing at the time of this writing. There is still plenty of opportunity for that price to fluctuate around a little bit in the interim - particularly with a poor run from some of the others in the chasing pack.
