One of the hottest handicaps on the horse racing calendar, the BetVictor Gold Cup sees the jump season get in to full swing in the middle of Autumn as part of the Cheltenham Open Festival.
Run over a distance of two and a half miles, the Grade Three race sees potential future Gold Cup prospects in the early stages of their career take on hardened handicappers in a spectacle that is always keenly fought.
Last year 12-1 shot Annacotty, with Ian Popham on board, held off a spirited challenge from Buywise to win the trophy and take the winner’s cheque of just over £91,000. Join National Holidays this year to find out who will take the victory.
If you’ve never been to Cheltenham racecourse before, it is a spectacular place to watch horse racing. The Prestbury track is the recognised home of National Hunt racing and one the most picturesque in the UK, surrounded by stunning Cotswolds countryside.
Since undergoing significant redevelopment the course also boasts state-of-the-art facilities for you to enjoy, including incredible views of the paddock and winner’s enclosure, plus a new Hall of Fame museum dedicated to the races witnessed at the famous racecourse.
The course enjoys a unique atmosphere that no other sporting arena can watch. Hearing the famous ‘Cheltenham roar’ echo around the course will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, whilst nothing compares to seeing the horse you’ve backed race up the final straight passed the Grandstands.
Join the punters and have a great day out on a special coach break with National Holidays.
