Cheltenham Gold Cup 2011 Betting Odds Make Imperial Commander And Long Run Most Likely Winners
Thursday 17 March 2011 at 16:23
The Cheltenham Gold Cup 2011 is now upon us taking place on Friday and the Cheltenham Gold Cup 2011 Betting Odds make it look one of the more open renewals in recent years with the favourite currently available at bigger than 3/1.
Imperial Commander Edging Favouritism From Long Run
Imperial Commander, who won the race last year, is the current favourite and can be backed around 10/3 to win the race for a second year running. His record of five chase wins from six attempts at the course looks really good and his long layoff shouldn't be too much of a worry, he won last year off another layoff. His biggest challenger according to the Cheltenham Gold Cup Odds is Long Run, who is very much the young pretender here. Very talented but two runs at Cheltenham haven't shown him in the best light, if he wins at around 9/2 he must be a very good horse as other courses suit him better.
Kauto Star And Denman Back For More Gold Cup Glory
Imperial Commander is not the only former winner coming back for more in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, both Kauto Star (won in 2007 and 2009) and Denman (won in 2008) return to the scene of their most famous victories. Both are still quite well fancied despite having to defy a more than forty year stat that goes against 11 year old winners, they can be backed at around 6/1 and 15/2 respectively. One of the most talked about each way Cheltenham Gold Cup Tips has been Pandorama but he will need as much rain as possible in the morning to give him the best chance of causing an upset at around 14/1.
