I’m Backing L’Homme Presse for the Gold Cup and Here’s Why the Supreme Market Makes No Sense

, I’m Backing L’Homme Presse for the Gold Cup and Here’s Why the Supreme Market Makes No Sense

Gold Cup Market Opening Up

The Gold Cup market is becoming more unpredictable, with fewer value bets available. However, there is one horse that catches my eye at a decent price of 16-1 – L'Homme Presse. This previous Festival winner has a top-class pedigree and is worth considering for an each-way bet.

Corbetts Cross for the Brown Advisory

For the Brown Advisory, I recommend keeping an eye on Corbetts Cross. Placing a £20 bet on this horse at 10s to win could prove to be a wise move.

Top-Class Racing at Fairyhouse

Last weekend's racing at Fairyhouse was a spectacle, particularly the performances of Firefox and Ballyburn. Both horses showed great potential and are likely to make an impact in Grade 1 races.

Teahupoo Shines in Hatton's Grace

Teahupoo demonstrated his class by defeating Impaire Et Passe in the Hatton's Grace. At odds of 4-1, this Gordon Elliott-trained star is a good bet for the Stayers at Cheltenham in March.

The Supreme Market Mystery

I can't help but be puzzled by the odds in the Supreme market. Jeriko Du Reponet, who won a weak race at Newbury, is priced at 8-1, while a top-class horse like Firefox is available at 10-1. The pricing seems illogical and raises questions about the overall competitiveness of the market.

Stick with High-Rated Gold Cup Contenders

If you're looking for Gold Cup contenders, focus on horses rated higher than 166. This could be a useful guideline for making informed betting decisions.

Uncompetitive Contests Pre-Cheltenham

It's worth noting that many of the top contests leading up to Cheltenham are disappointingly uncompetitive. While this may seem ironic to point out in a column dedicated to the Festival, it's important to acknowledge the lack of excitement in some Grade 1 races.

A Clash to Remember

This weekend, Jonbon and El Fabiolo will be in action, but unfortunately not in the same race. It would be thrilling to see these two talented horses go head-to-head. Perhaps they will meet in the Clarence House at Ascot next month, reminiscent of the epic duel between Energumene and Shishkin in 2021.

Let's hope for more exciting matchups like this in the future!
