What are the top tips for the race?
We’ve got all of our tipsters to give you their hot fancy for the contest:
GO for the great Escape in the Magners Gold Cup. I was booed off stage in several Cheltenham Festival preview nights after putting up ELEGANT ESCAPE to land the top prize of the week.
That hasn’t put me off as I think he’s got a fine chance of causing an upset.
I’m a huge NATIVE RIVER fan, and tipped him up in my Sun column over Christmas when he was about at 13-2 chance. He’s just super tough, talented and stays strong. Richard Johnson, the champion jockey, is made for this animal and I’m sure he’ll run massive for Colin Tizzard.
Wizard Of Odds
GO Native in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Every drop of rain that falls is perfect for defending champion NATIVE RIVER who can grind his rivals into the mud. It’s going to be a war of attrition like last year and Colin Tizzard’s star will love every yard of it.
The trends leave us with Bellshill and PRESENTING PERCY. The latter won the RSA Chase in good style last season and can follow up here.
