Silviniaco Conti 11/2 for the Gold Cup

| 13.03.2015

Get it while it lasts! On Friday from 8.30am we are offering 11/2 on Silviniaco Conti winning the Gold Cup. (Max stake £20)

The Cheltenham show piece is always highly competitive and this year is no different especially as Ap McCoy looks to claim his last ever Cheltenham win on Carlingford Lough.

Dual King George VI chase winner Silviniaco Conti bids to provide champion trainer Paul Nicholls with his fifth winner of the race.

The 9 year old comes into the race in good form with 2 out of 2 in its last outings and Nicholls will be hoping he carries on that form in the main event.

If our daily hero offers earlier in the week are anything to go by this will not last long at all so make sure you take advantage of this great price while you can!

Conte is favourite for the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup, has won the King George VI Chase and Betfair Chase but many still do not rate his chances of success on Friday. Two previous failures in the Cheltenham Gold Cup hang heavy over Silviniaco Conti, leaving many to question his ability to reproduce his form of elsewhere around Cheltenham. Despite the naysayers, Silviniaco Conti’s jockey Noel Fehily is confident his mount can produce a top performance and come home in front.
