BetVictor Gold Cup General Info

Established in 1960, this race has always been sponsored and as such has been known over the years as the Mackeson Gold Cup, Murphy’s Gold Cup and the Thomas Pink Gold Cup before the current sponsor took over the mantle in 2016.

It is run during Cheltenham’s November meeting over 2 miles 4½ furlongs, making it an ideal trial for the Ryanair Chase which is staged over the same distance. Since 2005 when the race replaced the Cathcart, seven BetVictor Gold Cup winners have gone on to run in the Ryanair with Imperial Commander managing to win the event in 2009.

This is a handicap race with Grade 3 status, and in 2019 it will be staged on Saturday November 16th and is worth a total of £160,000.

BetVictor Gold Cup Stats & Trends

15 of the last 19 BetVictor Gold Cup winners have gone on to run at the Festival, many of them very well, but as a handicap this is really a race for the “now” and so being well handicapped at the start of the season is crucial.

Look out for horses aged no older than 9 who are on the upgrade, or who may have run below par a couple of times last term and have therefore been lowered in the handicap.

BetVictor Gold Cup betting is always hot, so not too many go off at shorter prices. Just 5 out of 19 favourites have won the race, the average SP of winners since 2000 being just under 10/1, so you should tend to stay away from market leaders where possible.

By the same token though, 18 of 19 winners have been sent off at no bigger than 16/1 so the better, more fancied horses will go well meaning you can shorten your list of possibles right down.

Bet Victor Cup Past Winners

BetVictor Gold Cup 2018 betting was as hot as ever, Mick Channon’s Mister Whitaker going off 6/1 favourite with plenty of money floating around the ring too for Rather Be (7/1) and Baron Alco (8/1) among others.

Having suffered a suspensory injury when second in the 2017 Stable Plate at the Festival, it was feared we may never see the best of Baron Alco again but that was truly laid to rest here.

After a full 577 days off the track, George Moore’s runner proved to be well-handicapped, jumped best of all and stayed on well to tough it out and win. Unfortunately though, further injury worries meant he did not run at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival.
