Can Al Boum Photo Land a Hat-Trick in the Gold Cup?

Al Boum Photo was sent off at odds of 12/1 to win the 2019 Cheltenham Gold Cup, although the Willie Mullins-trained charge demonstrated all his class to land a victory ahead of Anibale Fly, with the horse putting in a smart round of jumping at Prestbury Park on good to soft ground.

The horse then returned to win the 2020 Gold Cup at the Cheltenham meeting, with Al Boum Photo sent off as the 10/3 favourite on that occasion and it’s currently possible to land odds bigger than this when it comes to the horse securing a hat-trick.

It’s clearly difficult to train a horse to win three Gold Cups, although Best Mate was able to manage it in living memory, with the runner being lightly raced in the build-up to the 2021 Gold Cup and the horse hasn’t been seen at a track since narrowly beating Santini last March.

Who Are the Other Main Gold Cup Contenders?

Santini was extremely close to being a Gold Cup winner twelve months previously and Nicky Henderson has the eight-year-old prepared for another assault on this race, having recently run a solid enough race when finishing fifth in the King George VI Chase behind Frodon and Clan Des Obeaux among others.

However, we know that Santini can battle hard over this Cheltenham track and Henderson will fancy that Al Boum Photo can be toppled this time around, while the same trainer has Champ potentially lining up for this race too.

Champ produced a blinding performance in the RSA Chase on 11 March when coming from a long way back up the straight to beat Minella Indo, with Barry Geraghty potentially on board to try and produce the goods once again although it will be interesting to see how he is after a long break.

Can Minella Indo Win First Gold Cup?

Minella Indo looked for all the world a winner when leading up the Cheltenham Hill in the RSA Chase, with the horse having previously scored victories at Wexford and Navan, Henry de Bromhead then seeing his horse fall in the Savills Chase at Leopardstown.

De Bromhead will hope that his runner doesn’t suffer any ill-effects from that fall and another interesting runner could be Frodon who is currently trading at 14/1, with punters knowing that the horse enjoys the Cheltenham track.


After nearly four days of fantastic horse racing at the Cheltenham Festival, it all comes down to the highlight feature race of the meeting, with the Gold Cup the biggest race of the week and it attracts a huge amount of media attention and betting interest.

This is a prestigious encounter which is run over three miles, two-and-a-half furlongs, with Al Boum Photo looking to win the race for the second time after a brilliant success in 2019 which saw the eight-year-old fend off the challenge of Anibale Fly and score for each-way backers at 12/1.

Willie Mullins is as good as it gets when it comes to training at the Cheltenham Festival, with Paul Townend likely to retain the ride and it was a flawless round of jumping at Tramore on New Year’s Day where Al Boum Photo obliged as the 4/7 favourite.

However, the horse was unable to win on the previous encounter when finishing second to Kemboy and perhaps the latter is the big danger when it comes to the 2020 renewal, with the seven-year-old also trained by Mullins who could have a stranglehold on the race this time around.

Kemboy claimed the spoils in the Betway Bowl Chase at the Aintree meeting before that success in the Coral Punchestown Gold Cup, with the horse having unseated his rider in the previous Gold Cup at Cheltenham although it could be a different story this time around.

The Cheltenham Gold Cup is a real test of stamina and one can’t help but feel as though Clan Des Obeaux could run an impressive race, with Paul Nicholls having produced an excellent training performance when winning the King George Chase at Kempton Park on Boxing Day.

The eight-year-old could have started to reach his peak this season and he finished a credible fifth place in last year’s Gold Cup, with the horse then finishing second to Kemboy at Aintree.

There were only five horses who entered the King George, although Clan Des Obeaux was sent off at odds of 11/2 and yet won by a distance of 21 lengths ahead of Cyrname who was priced as the 5/4 favourite.

The fact that the King George was run on soft ground is quite a telling factor and Nicholls will surely want the heavens to open in order for Clan Des Obeaux to have the best possible chance of winning.

Lostintranslation was also in that race at Kempton on Boxing Day and it was disappointing for connections to see that the horse was pulled up after previously looking impressive in previous races.

Having won at Carlisle, there was a victory in the Betfair Chase when beating Bristol De Mai and trainer Colin Tizzard will hope that the horse comes out of the King George disappointment in a great place to win.

Delta Work is another horse trading at single figures, with the runner triumphing over the Christmas period, with the six-year-old having fended off Monalee by a head at Leopardstown and obliging at 11/2.

Presenting Percy was sent off as the 100/30 favourite for the Cheltenham Gold Cup last season before finishing in a disappointing eighth place, with the horse having failed to rediscover the sort of form that saw the horse win the RSA Insurance Novices’ Chase twelve months previously.
