In the latest edition of the Racing Post podcast “Postcast”, proudly sponsored by Coral, Tom Segal (Pricewise), Jonathan Mullin and our very own David Stevens join Bruce Millington to look back on the action in Britain, Ireland and America this weekend.

The team kick-off with a look back at the Breeders’ Cup in Keeneland, discussing American Pharoah’s sensational success in the Classic, Golden Horn’s brave defeat at the hands of Found and an awesome display brilliant unbeaten juvenile Songbird.

Attention is then switched to the jumps, with a Gold Cup credentials of Don Cossack coming under scrutiny following his facile success in the Grade 1 JNwine Champion Chase at Down Royal.

The Gordon Elliott trained gelding, who is already the highest rated horse in the UK and Ireland, didn’t have to break sweat to win his second race of the season.

Don Cossack a decent shout for 2016 Cheltenham Gold Cup

He is now 6/1 with Coral to land the 2016 Cheltenham Gold Cup, with Willie Mullins’ Vautour heading the betting on 4/1.

Last year’s hero Conygree is a 7/1 chance, but Segal believes Saphir Du Rheu is the current ante post value in the race and a live outsider at 14/1 with Coral.

Cue Card’s game and impressive win the the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby also comes under the spotlight.

The gelding is now on course to try and land the Betfair Chase at Haydock on Saturday, November 21st, for a second time and 5/1 with Coral do to so.
