2016 Bet365 Gold Cup Betting Guide & Trends

2016 Bet365 Gold Cup Betting Guide & Trends – Known to older racing fans as The Whitbread, this 3m5 1/2f race is the last big jumping event of the NH season, and being staged on a mixed (jumps/flat) card then for many this signals the real handover between the two codes.


Run at Sandown Park racecourse the staying Handicap Grade Three chase has been won by some leading names over the years, including Desert Orchid, who landed the prize back in 1988. It’s also been a poor race for the favourite in recent times with not a single market leader win since Beau took the race in 2000, while it might pay to note that 20 of the last 25 winners carried less than 11st to victory.

Here at ThatsBettingTips we give you all the stats ahead of the 2016 renewal, this year run on Saturday April 23rd.
