2024 London Gold Cup Betting Odds at Newbury racecourse

Saturday, 18 May 2024

Chantilly and King’s Gambit are the two horses who are trading at single figure betting odds when it comes to this Newbury showdown, with the former having won last time out. There has been a steady flow of money for this runner who was also impressive last season, although King’s Gambit also has solid claims.

Fighter Command finished first in his last race and the John & Thady Gosden-trained runner certainly has the credentials to run well here, while Goodwood Odyssey is also trading at a similar price. Black Run and Brioni could also make an impression, with the each-way betting likely to stretch to a number of places.

Chantilly is the horse that has been respected the most by the layers when it comes to the London Gold Cup Handicap, with Aidan O’Brien training a horse that was able to claim a victory at Leopardstown at the beginning of April. Sent off as the 7/4 favourite, there was a victory over one mile and two furlongs on heavy ground.

This came after a success in the Irish EBF Maiden over a mile at the Curragh, with Ryan Moore on board the market leader, although there is some stiff competition in the form of King’s Gambit. Harry Charlton is the trainer of a horse makes a seasonal debut and the runner was second last time out.

The horse was second out of six runners at Newbury in September after previously landing a victory at the same course. However, there could be a lively challenge from Fighter Command and there was plenty to like about the way in which the John & Thady Gosden-trained runner was able to triumph at Windsor.

Goodwood Odyssey also has a solid official rating and there was a success at Sandown Park against eleven other runners. The horse was able to oblige over nearly two lengths in a race over one mile and two furlongs. This came after finishing second place on the all-weather at Kempton Racecourse over the distance of one mile.
