2018 Cheltenham Gold Cup Betting Tips PT 3

Last year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup champion Sizing John made a really big impression in front of a lot of people and he’s being backed to pull off another big victory but it’s telling that he’s not trading as the genuine favourite to win this big race again.

He got things kicked off to a good start this season when he captured the Grade 1 John Durkan Memorial Chase at Leopardstown and built up some real momentum before turning in a very poor performance that was explained by a bad clinical exam following the contest. In the Christmas Chase at Leopardstown he was beaten a full 32 lengths to muster up a very poor seventh place finish that has definitely thrown some question marks over top of him.

You can back Sizing John anywhere between a 6/1 and a 7/1 price which indicates that the bookmakers have his price relatively figured out and it’s going to be fascinating to see how his odds shift around prior to the race - particularly if he makes a very nice pre-race appearance.

Road To Respect is the next option here and he’s still available at a primarily single digit price according to the bookmakers and you’ll see a listing anywhere between 17/2 and a few of them floating him at 10/1.

He’s the one who captured the aforementioned Christmas Chase where Sizing John was beaten and you get the feeling that this one could be a very interesting play and a true feather in the cap of the Irish.
