Mister Whitaker is the current 12/1 favourite to win the BetVictor Gold Cup, which if you didn’t know is an annual major UK horse race held over at the Cheltenham racecourse.
Whilst it is quite rare to find ante post favourites with huge odds on offer as big as the odds attached to that horse, there are several betting sites that are offering much shorter odds, and those are the ones you should be avoiding if you do fancy placing a bet on that race, and the favourite!
You do however have until the 17th of November 2018 to place your bet on that race, for it is scheduled to be run at 3 o’clock in the afternoon, and what I will be doing today is looking at some of the other fancied horses to win so you can make up your own mind as to which of them you may fancy backing.
For reference, the best odds I have so far come across are available at the Ladbrokes betting site, so if you haven’t yet opened an account with them, but are planning on betting on the BetVictor Gold Cup then I would advise you to do so using our website links as you will then qualify for their sign up bonus too.
Very Favourable Each-Way Terms
One other reason why I think you should be using the Ladbrokes betting site to place your BetVictor Gold Cup bets at is that they have some extremely favourable each-way terms, which will see you get one quarter of the win odds for each of the first four placed horses in that race.
Therefore when placing such a bet you will still get a fairly big winning pay-out even if your horses doesn’t win but does get placed, and there are plenty of horses that may just sneak into a place including King’s Socks and Rather Be both on offer at odds of 14/1.
Other Horses That May Win the BetVictor Gold Cup
As for which other horses are in with a chance of winning, well you do have plenty of them to pick from including the likes of Foxtail Hill, Ballyandy and Tully East who have all shown some fairly decent form recently.
Those horses along with both Hell’s Kitchen and The Storyteller are available currently at the Ladbrokes betting site at odds of 16/1.
It could be one of the horses with even higher odds that come out on top and win this race, and therefore there may just be some value to be had betting on Magic Saint and Barney Dwan who are both 20/1.
A few other horses that Ladbrokes much fancy the chances of as they have them listed at 20/1 include Peregrine Run, Movewiththetimes, Le Prezien, Benatar and Ibis Du Rheu, so you will need to spend quite a bit of time looking at each horses form figures and trying to make sense of them as any horse could win this race.
