After landing the King George for the first time last December, can Cue Card add the 2016 Cheltenham Gold Cup to his collection as well?
He just needs the Gold Cup at Prestbury Park this March to complete the Chase Triple Crown and he is running at a 6/1 price to take the line first in this year’s Gold Cup.
That’s a price which portrays stiff opposition in the Cheltenham Gold Cup 2016 market, which is being led by Djakadam at 7/2, with Don Cossack, Don Poli and the exciting Vautour all shorter priced in the ante-post market than Cue Card.
But with Don Cossack falling in his King George challenge and an unpressive win at the Lexus Chase for Don Poli, is the window of opportunity a little wider open for Cue Card than it would appear to be?
