Cheltenham Gold Cup Day

Bet on Cheltenham 2018 Gold Cup Day With William Hill

Day 4 - Friday 16 March

Gold Cup Day betting guide

Gold Cup Day is the fourth and final day of the 2018 Cheltenham Festival, with seven races taking place on Friday 16th March. So what time do the day 4 races begin? The day begins with the Triumph Hurdle at 13:30 and an obvious Cheltenham tip is to bet on the favourite. Doing so would have made you a winner in each of the last three years. Apple’s Shakira is the expected favourite in 2018. Next comes the County Hurdle at 14:10 and Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle at 14:50, before it’s time for the Cheltenham Gold Cup at 15:30. Gold Cup Day concludes with the Foxhunters at 16:10, the Martin Pipe Handicap Hurdle at 16:50 and finally the Grand Annual at 17:30.

The runners in the 2018 Cheltenham Gold Cup betting

The Cheltenham Gold Cup is unsurprisingly the headline attraction of the day four races, with Might Bite the tip of many to add to his victory in the RSA Chase at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival. Injury has ruled Sizing John out of defending his Gold Cup crown and instead it’s last year’s third Native River who the Gold Cup betting suggests is the biggest challenger. Many of the other main fancies are similar to Might Bite in the sense that they’re a runner in the Cheltenham Gold Cup for the first time. Our Duke, Road To Respect, Killultagh Vic and Edwulf are all popular each-way bets.

How to bet on the best Gold Cup day odds

You can bet on the 2018 Cheltenham Festival in William Hill shops, online or on our App and the runners from day one, day two, day three and day four Cheltenham races will all be priced up. You’re not limited to betting on the winner of each race either, feel free to bet on a horse each-way, opt for a forecast of predicting the top two finishers or combine your tips into an accumulator. Keep an eye out for various Cheltenham special bets too, alongside any offers we may be running throughout the four days of racing.

Gold Cup Day – 2017 Results & Winners

Two trainer and jockey combinations enjoyed the greatest success on day four of the 2017 Festival, with Willie Mullins and Paul Townend combining for two winners, as did Jessica Harrington and Robbie Power. However, it may be Nicky Henderson who is the trainer to follow in 2018, with Apple’s Shakira in the Triumph Hurdle, Chef Des Obeaux in the Albert Bartlett, Might Bite in the Gold Cup and Theinval in the Grand Annual all tipped in the Cheltenham betting to run well. Here are the 2017 Gold Cup Day results again to refresh your memory.
