Trends Analysis


Kauto Star broke some strong trends in 2009 when becoming the first horse to regain the Gold Cup and was also winning with more experience over fences than any winner in the previous ten years.

Long Run also smashed some trends in 2011 when he became the first six-year-old to win the Gold Cup since Mill House way back in 1963!

Nevertheless the Gold Cup is a race where history often repeats itself and as well as the comprehensive list above make sure your selection lined up in the King George at Kempton as seven of the last ten winners ran in the Boxing Day highlight.*
