bet365 Gold Cup Tips
Bob Worth

The curtain comes down on the current jumps season at Sandown on Saturday, with the feature bet365 Gold Cup (3.50pm) a fitting finale.

The 3m51/2f race has attracted a field of 20 and the fact bookmakers are going 7/1 the field tells you it’s a competitive renewal. Lucy Wadham’s Le Reve is clear market leader with most firms and the seven-year-old looks to have been laid out for this race by his astute trainer. He’s shown some of his best form at this track, including when winning over 3m1/2f in January, and he ran a stormer when runner-up to Rocky Creek in the Betbright Chase last time. He’s now on a career-high mark as a result, but still possesses plenty of scope and he promises to stay this far, with the drying ground a help in that respect.

It’s hard to pick holes in him apart from his single-figure price and it’s worth noting this race has been a graveyard for favourites, with Mr Frisk being the last outright one to oblige in 1990.

READ REVIEW
Introduction

Betfair is an exchange, rather than a traditional bookmaker, meaning that it is possible to back and lay bets and the transactions are generally "punter to punter" (although in reality bookmakers use the service too).

It began life as an idea in 1998 before the world's first exchange was launched as The Sporting Exchange, before becoming Betfair in 2000. Rapid expansion followed with the company winning the Queen's Award for Enterprise in 2003, launching translations of the site in eight languages the same year. A whole host of awards followed as the company moved into yet more territories, both geographically and in terms of the gaming offered.

In 2010 they registered their three millionth customer and the same year floated on the London Stock Exchange. The company employs more than 2000 people, claims to offer odds 20% better than traditional bookmakers and processes seven million transactions per day - more than all European stock exchanges combined.

Introduction

Ladbrokes can trace its origins right back to 1886 when Messrs Schwind and Pennington went into partnership, primarily to back horses trained by the latter at Ladbroke Hall in Worcestershire. It was not until16 years later in 1902, with the help of Arthur Bendir, that Ladbrokes was effectively formed. The emphasis moved from backing to laying but horse racing remained essential to the company. Ladbrokes continued to evolve and innovate and now employs over 16,000 people worldwide.

Ladbrokes is a world-leader in retail betting with over 2700 shops in the UK, Ireland and Europe and a presence at many football grounds and racetracks in the UK.

Introduction

William Hill is another huge, British gambling institution with a proud and lengthy history. They employ over 15,000 people in the UK, Gibraltar, Israel and Bulgaria and have been listed on the London Stock Exchange since 2002.

Mr Hill himself founded the company in 1934 in the pre-regulation days and they opened their first retail outlet in 1966. Although the company’s founder retired in 1970 (and sadly died a year later) the brand has gone from strength to strength.

They have over 2,350 betting shops in the UK and Ireland, around 25% of the total market, claim to be the leading European online gaming and sports betting business, have an online presence available in 25 translated and localised sites and a tele-betting operation with around one million registered accounts. In other words – this is a massive, reputable bookmaker.
