Gold Cup Betting Tips: Nicholls Strong on Conti’s Chances


Silvinicao Conti’s trainer Paul Nicholls has been talking about his Cheltenham Gold Cup chances and he seems very sweet on the chances of his King George winner.

Silviniaco Conti is currently the second favourite in the latest Gold Cup betting odds at 3/1 with Betfred, behind last year’s winner Bobs Worth who is 7/4. The market is dominated by these two but there is plenty of each-way value around with the likes of Last Instalment at 7/1, Captain Chris at 16/1 and The Giant Bolster at 20/1.

Nicholls thinks Conti is a better horse this season and his fall three out in last year’s Gold Cup when travelling strongly will have taught the horse a lesson. His trainer has said he has physically improved since last year’s race and that was illustrated when he won the King George at Kempton on Boxing Day. Silviniaco Conti has had two runs this season and won the King George going away which Paul Nicholls says demonstrates that the staying power of the horse gives him a realistic chance of picking up the Gold Cup at this season’s Cheltenham Festival.

Here at we have been a long-time admirer of the horse and Silvinaco Conti has been our long time Cheltenham Gold Cup betting tip.

Bobs Worth once again looks the horse to beat with his immaculate five out of five record around Cheltenham but Conti was arguably travelling the better of the two when he came down last year and this could be the Nicholls’ horses year.
