Cheltenham Festival Winner Noble Prince Set For Paddy Power Gold Cup

Wednesday 9th November 2011

Noble Prince was one of the stars of the Cheltenham Festival last season and all eyes are on the Paul Nolan trained horse to see how he progresses this campaign. We saw Noble Prince win the Jewson Novices Chase at the Festival back in March and after one easy spin over fences he is now likely to go back to Cheltenham for the Paddy Power Gold Cup. It will be a massive test for the horse if he runs at the Open Meeting but a good run there will see his reputation enhanced yet further. Noble Prince will have to carry a sizeable weight in 11st 2lbs if he runs in the Paddy Power which is the biggest race of the season so far this winter. At the moment the Paul Nicholls trained Poquelin will take top weight and as long as he runs we are likely to see Noble Prince also take his chance at Prestbury Park.

The Paddy Power Gold Cup always gives punters an early season pointer as we look ahead to the Cheltenham Festival next March and this years renewal is looking as strong as ever. Noble Prince is likely to have to take on the exciting Mon Parrain of Paul Nicholls who has been tipped for big things for some time now and he is likely to go off the warm favourite. At the moment Noble Prince is the favourite for the Ryanair Chase at the Festival and any decent run at the weekend will see that price shorten up pretty quickly. It is worth noting that we saw Long Run only finish third in the Paddy Power last season before going onto win the King George and the Gold Cup. With that in mind Noble Prince may not need to win the race to impress punters, connections will be hoping he runs well at the weight and improves from his win last time out.
