The Gold Cup looks to be an intriguing in-running contest and all eyes will be on Denman over the first few fences. He is a bruiser and it should be fairly obvious if he is back to his best when the field sets out for the final circuit. If a number of them already look stretched, that would be the time to back AP McCoy’s mount. There is no better front runner in jump racing than this monster of a horse and he has a habit of breaking hearts.
If you are looking for one to shorten up in-running, then that could well be Imperial Commander who normally runs up with the pace and is a strong traveller over the first 2 1/2 miles of the race.
It could be argued that a ‘back in-running’ strategy would be sensible for Kauto, as if Denman takes it up with a circuit to go, people will remember two years ago. However, I’m of the opinion that Denman won’t be able to pour it on like he did that day and it’s unlikely that the champion will trade much bigger than his SP. He is up against some relatively unexposed types in Imperial Commander, Cooldine and Tricky Trickster this year, though, so it wouldn’t be a bad idea to lock in a profit approaching the third last.
