Hennessey Gold Cup

Second blog for 3furlongs out and with the hennessey gold cup coming up this weekend I thought be fitting to for a little trip down memory lane look into the history of the great race, previous winners and the chances of the years runners.

HISTORY-

The race was first run in 1957 at Cheltenham won by duel winning mandarin (1957 & 1961) the second running of this grade 3 chase was moved to Newbury.

The race sponsored by peggy hennessey is the longest commercial sponsorship in racing history and has an illustrious list of winners with the great denman winning the race twice. with arkle the only other duel winner of the race.

(ARKLE DUEL WINNER)

(DENMAN DUEL WINNER)

THIS YEAR-

All the questions and maybe I may have the answers?

Can smad place join the great 3 mentioned above ? if the ground eases more then I believe there’s an each way shout but I think it’s a big ask for him to win.

My big fancy for the race is native river, form ✔

Trainer form ✔

Ground in favour ✔

(Best odds 13/2 betfair)

One at longer odds is of interest to me is outlander needs ease in the ground but can see this horse going very close at larger odds.

(Best odds 20/1 skybet)

I’m going to take native river to win and outlander ew.
