The Young Master one to follow in his follow up bid at Sandown

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 not a single market leader win since Beau took the race in 2000, while it might pay to note that 23 of the last 29 winners carried less than 11st to victory.

Here at Geegeez we give you all the stats ahead of the 2022 renewal, this year run on Saturday April 23rd.
