Cheltenham Gold Cup 2020 Result

15:30 Friday 13 March 2020

MAGNERS CHELTENHAM GOLD CUP CHASE (Grade 1) (1)

Distance : 3m 2f 70y (New)
Prize : £351,687 Age : 5yo+ Race Type : Chase Going : Gd/Sft

A representative field for the most prestigious race in jumping, only Native River of the main trial winners missing, the runners all aged between 7 and 9 and thus in theory in their prime, the race an enthralling one to watch, with all bar Elegant Escape in with a chance 3 out after the pace had been just fair, fine margins between the principals and a case for saying quite a few might win another day on different ground, or with a race run differently, or another track or just with more rub of the green, but the winner, albeit narrowly, was the right one on the day, the first back-to-back Gold Cup winner since Best Mate won his third in 2004, not by any means the best winner in that period but one primed for the day on both occasions and given a copybook ride that enabled him to run to his best, the proximity of the fourth and sixth making it difficult to rate the form as better than an average Gold Cup; Al Boum Photo gave his trainer a 4-timer on the card, including all 3 Grade 1 races, making it 5 championship races on the week, the best races dominated by the top yards, with Henderson, de Bromhead, Elliott and Nicholls winning 7 between them, leaving just the Stayers' Hurdle for one of the smaller yards, Elliott dominant through strength of numbers in the 'lesser races', including winning 4 handicaps, which at least means we should hear less about undeniable facts next year, the difficulty of less powerful yards getting a look in and the underperformance of some of the top British yards, aside from Henderson, perhaps more fruitful topics of discussion, though the shadow looming over the whole event was the wisdom in its taking place, at least in front of such large crowds, the answer to that question not yet knowable.
