Neil Mulholland Can Claim More Big Race Glory With Previous Winner Of The bet365 Gold Cup At Sandown

The Young Master Is Well Fancied To Run A Big Race In The bet365 Gold Cup At Sandown On Saturday For Neil Mulholland

The Bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown has attracted the maximum field of 20 and Steve Ryder believes that a previous winner of the race can win it once again.

The Young Master has been a fantastic horse for Neil Mulholland over the years including as a novice chaser when he won four out his five starts with his only defeat coming in the RSA Chase at Cheltenham.

The Conkwell Grange star won this race in 2016 having finished 3rd at the Cheltenham Festival and bids to do exactly the same again this season. In 2016 he placed in the Ultima Handicap Chase off a mark of 149 before winning this race by a short head off a mark of 148 on good ground.

For the previous two seasons, The Young Master had failed to win and had dropped down to a career low mark over fences of 130 when making his reappearance at Chepstow. He won by 2 ½ lengths that day before following up a month later at Cheltenham off only 5lb higher. Those two victories came on good ground and he struggled in the Ladbrokes Trophy on soft ground when he was pulled up when only sent off a 15/2 shot.

The Young Master appreciated the return to better ground in the Kim Muir Handicap Chase at Cheltenham last time when he finished 3rd off a mark of 142 when staying on well at the finish. That was over 3m2f and we know he will appreciate the step up in trip to nearly 3m5f in this race.

The Young Master (EW)
9/1
Odds correct as of Friday 26th April 14:14

Sam Waley Cohen has ridden The Young Master throughout his career and can claim 3lb off his back in this race which is another positive and this in-form chaser can prove himself to still be well handicapped.  

The dangers to him this year include Step Back who won this last year off a 10lb lower mark but who has struggled to recapture that form and also Talkischeap who skipped the Cheltenham Festival with this race in mind. He has to prove he is still well handicapped off a mark of 145 though as he slightly disappointed at Kempton in February off the same mark.

Other dangers include Give Me A Copper who has to bounce back from a disappointing run in the Ultima Handicap Chase and also the winner Beware The Bear who will need rain to defy a 9lb rise in my opinion.

Overall, I think THE YOUNG MASTER is a fantastic each way bet and with bookmakers offering some excellent promotions and extra places he looks sure to hit the frame.
