Road To riches odds-on for Irish Gold Cup success

| 02.02.2016

Road To Riches is now odds-on at 4-5 with leading bookmaker Coral to win the Irish Gold Cup after Vautour and Don Poli were both taken out of Saturday’s feature contest at Leopardstown. Foxrock is second best in the betting at 6-1, while Gilgamboa can be backed at 7-1.

In the Spring Juvenile Hurdle, Ivanovich Gorbatov has been trimmed into 1-2 (from 4-7) by Coral, while they have also seen support for War Sound in the Betfair Hurdle who is now the joint 6-1 favourite along with Modus.

“Road To Riches’ task has been made a lot easier on Saturday now that Vautour and Don Poli have been taken out of the race. He has been a very popular favourite ever since we opened up betting on the contest where Noel Meade will be hoping his runner can strengthen his Cheltenham Gold Cup claims,” said Coral’s John Hill.
