2024 Irish Gold Cup Trends

Staged at Leopardstown racecourse the Paddy Power Irish Gold Cup is run over a distance of 3m 1/2f, with 17 fences to be tackled.

First run in 1987, the contest now another recognised trial for the Cheltenham Gold Cup run a month later with Jodami (1993), Imperial Call (1996) and Sizing John (2017) the only horses to take both races in the same season. The 2013, Sir Des Champs, went onto finish runner-up in that season’s Cheltenham Gold Cup, while the last horse win both the Irish Gold Cup and the Cheltenham Gold Cup in the same campaign was Sizing John in 2017.

Leading Irish trainer, Willie Mullins, is always feared as he’s sent out 12 of the last 24 winners, including 3 of the last 5 renewals, while UK raiders have taken 2 of the last 16 runnings with popular greys The Listener (2008) and 2012 Grand National hero, Neptune Collonges (2009).

However, the other main Irish yards of Gordon Elliott (2 wins), despite winning it in 2020 and 2022 and Henry de Bromhead (no wins) are yet to really stamp their mark on this prize the way Willie Mulins has.

Here at GeeGeez, we look back at recent winners and gives you all the key stats to take into the 2024 renewal – this year run on Saturday 3rd February.
