Greatwood Cup Trends

This Saturday’s Grade 3 Greatwood Gold Cup is a Handicap Chase staged at Newbury racecourse and is always a hotly-contested event. The race is run over a distance of 2m4f and is currently sponsored by BetVictor, who are also supporting the Greatwood charity. It was first run in 2004 and since then has been dominated by top UK National Hunt trainer Paul Nicholls – who has won the race a staggering nine times - anything he runs should, therefore, be respected.

Here at GeeGeez, we look back at recent winners of the race and give you all the key trends to take into the 2022 renewal – this year run on Saturday 5th March – for example, did you know 15 of the last 17 winners were aged 8 or younger?
