Cheltenham course specialists are like goldust for punters at the Cheltenham Festival and no horse defines that tag more than the gutsy Bobs Worth, who looks a five start wager for today’s Gold Cup.

Friday’s feature is always a special occasion for all concerned but finding the winner is a buzz that no other feeling comes close to at the Cheltenham Festival.

The sheer adrenaline flowing through your veins when your horse is charging up the Cheltenham hill to victory carrying your hard earned dosh is a spectacular outburst of emotion. No-one ever forgets the year they backed the winner of the Gold Cup. Let’s hope Bobs Worth can be that horse this season.

Built like a tank, but with a cool head on his shoulders, the winner of the Neptune Investment Novices Hurdle, the RSA Chase and last year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup itself is developing into one of the best chasers for a Cheltenham slog in the history of the sport. Today’s race looks a weak race in terms of his opposition and around the 2/1 mark with a variety of bookmakers, he looks a fantastic wager.

His preparation for this year’s race has been more stuttering than outstanding but the more he’s run the more comfortable he’s looked. He started the season by putting in, arguably, his worst performance of his career when pulling up in the Betfair Chase, which was won in fine fashion by Cue Card.

Many people had started to question whether last year’s Gold Cup win had taken the edge of Bobs Worth but he put those fears to rest when winning the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown over Christmas. Settled in behind the early leaders, Bobs Worth looked more at home over the fences and jumped with his old vigour.

With two out there was only ever going to be one winner as Barry Geraghty gave the horse a squeeze and he kept finding in front to repel First Lieutenant to the delight of the crowd.

Since the turn of the century the last 13 winners started in the first three in the betting in the Gold Cup and the winner looks very likely to come from that area again as there is no strength in depth in the race.

Silviniaco Conti has plenty going for him but has never flourished at Cheltenham while Last Instalment, although looking very classy when winning the Irish Hennessy, is a fragile horse and may not get home on the ground.

Bobs is the one.
