Cheltenham Day Four tips: Bobs Worth backing strongly in Gold Cup

It doesn’t get better that Gold Cup day the Cheltenham Festival and as with any day during the Festival there is money to be made and bets to be landed. Lewis Jones takes us through his tips for the day….

It’s been a rather sticky week on the tips front. We’ve had our fair share of bad luck and near misses and only Sire De Grugy’s rampant win has really gone to plan. Anyway, today is another day and hopefully we can end the Festival with a bang.

Each-way big prices are the theme today, apart from the Gold Cup where we are putting our faith fully in Bobs Worth (4pts win) to retain his title.

Nicky Henderson and Barry Geraghty have yet to team up with a winner this year but that will change in the feature race. Bobs Worth is such a simple horse to work out. When he runs at Cheltenham, you back him.


Five times he’s rocked up at Prestbury Park and five times he’s rewarded the faith. He is a brute jumping the Cheltenham fences and nothing comes up the hill better than the little horse who has the heart the size of a lion.

This year’s renewal looks lacking a rival worthy of putting it up to him with Silviniaco Conti flattered by his Kempton win and Last Instalment untrusted to act on the ground.

It looks ripe for an outsider to hit the money and punters should perhaps find a big price to follow for place money. Get on Bobs Worth though in the win market at 2/1.

Flat-bred horses trained by John Quinn have a great record in the Triumph Hurdle and Rutherglen (1pt EW) has good each way claims at 14/1 in this year’s renewal.

Being Willie Mullins-trained (two winners and a second in the last four years) is the way forward in the Vincent O’Brien and the one to be on this year looks to be Upazo (1pt EW) at 40/1.

Mullins has the favourite in the Albert Bartlett but Evens is far too short, so we’re having a bit each way on Champagne West (1pt EW).

The vibes about Next Sensation (2pts EW) running a huge race in the Grand Annual are very strong and looks the each-way banker of the day at 8/1.
