2014 Gold Cup Runners

A look at each of the runners towards the head of the 2014 Cheltenham Gold Cup betting.

Bobs Worth

Bobs Worth has now won at the last three Cheltenham Festivals, taking the Albert Barltett in 2011, the RSA in 2012 and achieving a record-breaking victory in the Gold Cup in last year.
Bobs Worth has been given one of the highest official ratings of recent Gold Cup winners and he is very much the horse to beat in 2014.

Silviniaco Conti

Last year's Gold Cup was a case of what might of been for Silviniaco Conti as Paul Nicholls' charge was still seemingly going well when falling at the third last in the Gold Cup.
Silviniaco Conti hammered home his Gold Cup claims when taking the King George at Kempton this season but has yet to win a race at Cheltenham to prove to his doubters that he definitely acts on that track.

Last Instalment

Returned from nearly two years off the track and confirmed he as good as ever when taking the Grade One Hennessy Gold Cup at Leopardstown.
His injury problems are well documented and he may be a doubtful runner on quick ground but must definitely come into the equation with cut in the ground and connections are saying there could be more improvement still to come.

First Lieutenant

Defeated future Champion Hurdler Rock On Ruby to take the Neptune Hurdle at the Festival in 2011 and has maintained that high level of form ever since. Just missed out in the RSA in 2012 when a game runner-up to Bobs Worth.
With Gigginstown Stud owning Sir Des Champs, this horse was diverted to the Ryanair last year but will surely be given the go ahead to focus on the Gold Cup in 2014.

The Giant Bolster

has a fantastic record at Cheltenham and will appeal to many as the best each-way bet in the race.
Impressive winner at Cheltenham on his last outing and has finished fourth and second in the last two Gold Cups. Loos sure to go well once again.
