2023 Gold Cup form takes a huge hit
The team discussed the current Gold Cup market ahead of the race in 2024, reacting to the price changes of Fastorslow who went from 12/113.00 into 5/16.00 and also last year's winner Galopin Des Champs moving out to 3/14.00 from 2/13.00.
Bravemansgame went from 10/111.00 out to 14/115.00 for the Cheltenham feature after his second runner up finish of the season in the Betfair Chase at Haydock.
Gerri Colombe moved into 4/15.00 second favourite and the panel discussed the chances of Gordon Elliott's leading runner while also discussing some of the bigger priced horses in the race.
Gaelic Warrior performance splits opinions
Gaelic Warrior put up the best chasing debut seen this year on official ratings and Kevin and Daryl were split in opinion on just how good the run was.
Others discussed off the back of their runs last week included Klassical Dream, Mister Policeman and Favori De Champdou to name just a few.
Mighty Bandit was flagged by both the tipsters as their performance of the week from both a visual and sectional stand point and is now a 12/113.00 shot for the Triumph Hurdle.
