Cheltenham Gold Cup Horse Race
It started in 1924 and was then considered to be no other than a hole inventory and indictment for the Grand National The cause for this was chiefly due to the rewards the Cheltenham Gold Cup winner received 685, while the winner of the National got a whopping 8,240It has always been that horses who did well in the Gold Cup tended to go on to the Grand National but there has been some derision about the correlation between how a horse running in the Gold Cup may meal when handicapped in the National. There is besides the issue of the severity of the National so soon after the challenge of the Gold Cup there are moderate three weeks between the races, and sometimes due to Easter, they can arise but 15 days apart Furthermore the National weights are framed before the Gold Cup, so the horses covert at Cheltenham doesn’t achieve taken into account during handicapping. In 1999 Double Thriller was made a well-backed favourite for the National after coming fourth in the Gold Cup. It was uncommonly evident for all to see that if the handicapper could posses taken into invoice his Gold Cup run he would hold allotted him at least a peanut other than his 10 aficionado 8 pounds The National occurred 23 days after the Cheltenham prance and he fell at the finest handrail Again in 2002 the National included three horses who had run in the Gold Cup Marlborough, What’s Up Boys and Alexander Banquet. All three were among the finest four in the weights at Aintree: Marlborough weighing in at 11st 12lbs, Alexander Banquet 11st 11lbs and What’s Up Boys 11st 6lbs Marlborough fell at the first, Alexander Banquet fell at the sixth and What’s up Boys flawless runner up by equitable one and a quarter lengths This really is amazing considering no horse had carried more than 11 follower to win since Corbiere at 11st 4 lbs twenty years previously.The days retain long recent since the Cheltenham Gold Cup has been regarded as a warm up for the Grand National In truth it is now a frisk of extremely lofty regard and horses who win it are rarely risked in the turbulence of the lope that is the Grand National In 2003 it was marked that the six finishers in the National had missed out Cheltenham as they were being specially targeted for the Aintree race. In the former decade only two horses own won the Grand National after running at Cheltenham Bindaree in 2002 and Silver Birch in 2007, but Silver Birch’s victory may have been due to the reality that there was a four week ravine between the races Only one horse has won the Gold Cup and the National in the twin season, but six jockeys have managed it: Tommy Cullinan, Gerry Wilson, Fred Winter, Tommy Carberry, John Burke and Jim Culloty.
