2022 Coral Gold Cup Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Saturday, 26 November 2022

When it comes to long-distance National Hunt horses races, there aren’t many that are further than the Coral Gold Cup. This race takes place over a distance of three miles and two furlongs, with the runners and riders having to complete 21 fences and it’s a severe test of stamina and jumping ability, especially if the ground is soft.

There are a maximum of 24 horses that can line up each year and the prize money tends to be around the £150,000 mark for the winner, with this traditionally being a popular each-way betting race. After all, there are lots of talented horses lining up and that means you can stand to make a profit if you back a runner at a decent price and they come into the frame.

This is a handicap race, so it’s always interesting to see the weight that each runner is carrying and what sort of bearing this is going to have on the outcome. This race has a proud history, having been in operation since 1957 and it has been sponsored by Ladbrokes Coral for the past few years.

Three horses have landed two victories in the Coral Gold Cup, with Mandarin winning the first ever running of this race and then returning to the track to land the spoils four years later. The legendary Arkle has also been a double winner by scooping a victory in 1964 and then coming back to win a year later.

In more recent times, Denman has come to Newbury racecourse and won the Gold Cup in 2007 before securing his place in the archives with a 2009 victory. At this stage, the race was still sponsored by Hennessy and this advertising deal ended in 2016 when Ladbrokes were announced as the new sponsor in 2017.

This race is always a useful barometer when it comes to the Cheltenham Gold Cup. After all, there have been nine horses that have won the Coral Gold Cup and then gone on to win the Cheltenham Gold Cup, with Native River the last horse to secure a dual success when winning at the Festival in 2018.

2022 Coral Gold Cup Tips

Corach Rambler was the winner of the Ultima Handicap Chase at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival and that explains why the eight-year-old is among the favourites when it comes to the Coral Gold Cup. That victory occurred over three miles and one furlong, although Lucinda Russell saw her charge underperform at Carlisle at the end of October and might have needed the run.

Remastered also had a striking victory when winning the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle at Aintree Racecourse, with the 8/1 chance landing a three-length win over favourite Milan Bridge, while stable-mate Gericault Roque finished second to Corach Rambler in the Ultima Handicap Chase and also merits respect.

More recently, the seven-year-old finished well behind Proschema and Thomas Darby in the bet365 Hurdle at Wetherby. Le Milos and Busselton are also worth a second glance, with the former having recently returned to the track at Bangor and winning over three miles on heavy ground.
