Cheltenham Festival 2020 Day Four Preview - a look at the big races each day of the Cheltenham Festival 2020 with odds from SBK.
A race that’s likely to be fought out by the market principles with Goshen and Allmankind both set to duel it out from the front at a blistering pace. That could set things up for Paul Nicholls’ Solo to pick up the pieces coming up the hill. The Champion Hurdle was loosely discussed after his taking victory at Kempton last time and while he may have bypassed that contest, he should take all the beating here.
- Solo - 18/5
- Allmankind - 26/5
- Goshen - 3/1
Generally always won by a dour stayer with a touch of class, this year’s field looks a fairly ordinary bunch with a few exceptions. Of those, Cobbler’s Way is potentially likeliest to triumph in this stamina-sapping contest for the same trainer/jockey combination as last year’s winner. Fury Road and Redford Road can follow him home.
- Cobbler’s Way – 13/1
- Fury Road – 12/1
- Redford Road – 26/1
One of the most open Gold Cups in recent memory with a high-quality field lining up to take on last year’s winner Al Boum Photo. However this sometimes goes to a horse having its first run in the race, and a Grade 1 winner at that, which would point towards Delta Work, who will have no concerns over the trip and whose trainer knows what it takes to win the race.
Paul Nicholls’ former King George VI winner, Clan Des Obeaux, was an admirable fifth in the race last year and can improve to fill the places alongside the aforementioned Al Boum Photo.
- Delta Work – 29/5
- Al Boum Photo - 22/5
- Clan Des Obeaux - 43/10
