Last year’s winner, Native River, is expected to return for another shot at glory. Native River is looking to join the short list of horses to win multiple Gold Cup races. Just seven horses have won the race more than one time. The Cheltenham Gold Cup 2019 is set to be another exciting race as it caps off a great four-day festival.

Odds on favourites for this year’s race

Presenting Percy: 4/1

Following last year’s Cheltenham Festival, Presenting Percy was sent home to the farm. Trainer Pat Kelly wanted the seven-year old to be fresh for the 2019 edition of the Gold Cup and gave the horse the remainder of the racing year off. Presenting Percy leads a list of top horses as the Gold Cup comes into focus. Now eight-years old, Presenting Percy won the RSA Chase at Cheltenham a year ago.

Just seven horses have won multiple Gold Cup races. Native River aims to be the eighth horses to accomplish the elite feat. The Colin Tizzard trained nine-year-old last ran at Kempton on Boxing Day. He finished third over three miles. After winning the Gold Cup in March of last year, Native River had a 253-day break, finishing up the season with second and third place finishes in his last two races.

Clan Des Obeaux: 8/1

Clan Des Obeaux finished off 2018 with a 10th win in the King George IV Chase. Clan Des Obeaux was a 12/1 shot ahead of the race at Kempton and now is being eyed as a major contender to win this year’s Gold Cup. The win saw Clan Des Obeaux ease past Grade 1 winners such as Might Bite, last year’s Gold Cup runner-up. Trainer Paul Nicholls and jockey Harry Cobden are very high on Clan Des Obeaux’s chances to win at Cheltenham.

Kemboy: 8/1

Kemboy had his odds slashed by major sportsbooks following his success at Leopardstown in late December. Some bookies are offering odds of 6/1 on the Willie Mullins’ trained horse. Kemboy ran seven races in 2018 with five ending in wins. The seven-year-old’s last four races were all victories. After his Savills Chase win in December, Kemboy’s stamina was praised jockey David Mullins.

Might Bite: 10/1

Might Bite finished second in last year’s Gold Cup. Many insiders expect the 10-year-old to have an epic 2019 battle with Native River in the Chase Hunt, but that remains to be seen. The Nicky Henderson trained horse underwent surgery in early January and won’t race again until March’s Gold Cup. Henderson believes the wind operation will greatly help the horse in his bid to win the Gold Cup. However, the layoff may not help. Might Bite won at Aintree in April 2018, but after 226 days off, the horse could only manage fifth and seventh place finishes in the final races of the year.

Sky Bet Handicap Chase: Odds to win prestigious Doncaster race

The Sky Bet Handicap Chase will be run at the Doncaster Racecourse on Saturday, 26th of January. The three-mile race is one of the most prestigious on the National Hunt series. This year’s edition of the race will see a record amount of prize money go to the winner. For the first time, the Sky bet Handicap Chase winner will receive a £100,000 purse. Racing fans can stay up to date with the Sky Bet Handicap Chase and all of the horse betting in New Jersey this year. The Sky Bet Handicap Chase will be the main event at Doncaster as six other races will take place throughout the day.

Thirty-seven horses have been entered to run this year’s Sky Bet Handicap Chase. Here is a look at the top five running at Doncaster on the 26th of January.

Dingo Dollar: 13/2

Trainer Alan King has seen his Dingo Dollar take over the favorite’s tag in recent days. Major sportsbooks have installed the seven-year-old as the top horse despite not winning a race in the last 11 months. Dingo Dollar did win his last outing at Doncaster in February 2018, but finished the year as runner-up at Ayr. He also had fourth and third place finishes in two races at Newbury.

Give Me A Copper: 12/1

Horse trainer Paul Nicholls has six horses entered in to the Sky Bet Handicap Chase. Give Me A Copper is believed to be the most likely to land Nicholls a fourth win at the prestigious race. Give Me A Copper has been lightly raced during his career. The horse has only run seven times with the last event coming in November 2017. Five of those seven races have ended in wins, including Give Me A Copper’s last outing at Kempton.

Mister Whitaker: 12/1

Mister Whitaker is one of the most in-form horses competing at this year’s Sky Bet Handicap Chase. Trained by Mick Channon, Mister Whitaker won three of four races in 2018. In November, he finished fourth at the BetVictor Gold Cup at Cheltenham to end the season. He has never run a distance of three miles in a race. The step up in distance could greatly affect his performance at Doncaster.

O O Seven: 12/1

Nine-year-old O O Seven heads back to Doncaster Racecourse where he last won in December 2018. The horse won by half a length over three miles with jockey Aiden Coleman in the saddle. Trained by Nicky Henderson, O O Seven has seven career wins. The horse has always performed well at Doncaster and his most recent victory in December came after wind surgery.

Adrien du Pont: 14/1

Adrien du Pont is Nicholls’ second favourite to win the Sky Bet Handicap Chase. The seven-year-old capped off 2018 with a win at Kempton by three and a half lengths over Just A Sting. It was the horse’s only win of the year. The win came over three miles, a distance Adrien du Pont hasn’t run at Doncaster previously. In January 2018, Adrien du Pont ran his first race at Doncaster. He finished third in the two-and-a-half-mile race.
