2024 bet365 Gold Cup Trends

The Bet365 Gold Cup will be known to older racing fans as The Whitbread, this 3m5 1/2f race is the last big jumping event of the NH season, and being staged on a mixed (jumps/flat) card then for many this signals the real handover between the two codes.

Run at Sandown Park racecourse the staying Handicap Grade Three chase has been won by some leading names over the years, including Desert Orchid, who landed the prize back in 1988. It’s also been a poor race for the favourite in recent times with just one outright winning favourite since 1990, but that was last year with Kitty's Light - while it might pay to note that 25 of the last 32 winners carried less than 11st to victory.

Here at Geegeez we give you all the stats ahead of the 2024 renewal - this year run on Saturday 27th April 2024.
