As I am sure you can imagine, there are a lot of trends for the Gold Cup. The majority of winners are aged between 4 and 6 years old, have won a 2 mile or longer race and finished in the top 3 last time out.
I haven’t applied these trends strictly because there are a couple of runners who look like they may have potential that would be removed. However this has managed to give us 7 non-contenders.
A P O’Brien and PC Boudot have got a good strike rate at Ascot and so we need to mark Brigantin and Fame And Glory as potential contenders. Hayley Turner specializes over the distance and so The Betchworth Kid must also be considered.
Askar Tau, Opinion Poll and Fictional Account are unlikely to have the speed in this race to come out on top and so are removed leaving us with Blue Bajan, Fame And Glory, Holberg, The Betchworth Kid and Brigantin.
From these Blue Bajan looks to be the strongest with Fame And Glory and Holberg as potential threats.
I would suggest an each-way bet on Blue Bajan with a place bet on Holberg and Fame And Glory.
