The Paul Nicholls to have first 3 home in the Gold Cup betting has been put up by Totesport as the Cheltenham Gold Cup declarations have now come out. Paul Nicholls is 10-1 with the sponsors to train the first three home in the totesport Gold Cup following the latest declaration stage today. Nicholls had been a 12-1 chance prior to the King George meeting at Kempton.
Spokesman Damian Walker said: We havent changed a horse in our totesport Gold Cup market following the eight defections as it is all about the big two Kauto Star and Denman. At our prices it is a 1-5 chance that either horse wins the race.
Paul Nicholls is 10-1 with us to train the first three home and he has five of the first 15 in our ante-post market. We had been 12-1 prior to the King George meeting, but the failure of Exotic Dancer at Kempton and that horses subsequent setback, make this incredible feat a more likely possibility.
