Bobs Worth heads betting for Gold Cup repeat as 36 are entered

| 09.01.2014

Bobs Worth is the 2-1 (from 9-4) favourite with Coral for back-to-back wins in the Gold Cup, after 36 contenders were entered for the Cheltenham showpiece today. The King George winner Silviniaco Conti is the 7-2 second favourite, ahead of the Kempton runner-up Cue Card and First Lieutenant, second to the favourite last time, both 8-1.

“As expected for jump racing’s Blue Riband event, all the top staying chasers feature in the Gold Cup betting, but without doubt the one they all have to beat is the reigning champion Bobs Worth, whose record already includes a hat-trick of Festival wins, and who returned to top form at Leopardstown last month,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

Racing Post. Now in the role of Head of PR, he is involved in all aspects
of the company's media relations, providing the latest racing betting news , as well as Coral's sponsorship and event
portfolio. A keen sports fan, and long-suffering Portsmouth supporter (the

heading south, or east or west, to the sun, and that liking for the sunshine
explains why he will always prefer flat racing to the jumps.
