Betting tips on horse racing’s Gold Cup

The prestigious Gold Cup is one of few races in the horse racing calendar that bookmakers start producing odds for months in advance. With racing betting proving a very popular activity in Britain, putting bets on the winner of the Gold Cup is one of those events that attract casual as well as seasoned racing fans. So which horse would be a decent pick for those looking to put a bet on?

Only a selection of the horses in this years race look capable of winning. Currently the market favourite with bookmakers
is Bobs Worth with most of the major sports betting sites are offering just 9/4, with some as short as 2/1. If you’re looking to avoid the favourite in order to get some bigger odds then there are plenty of other options, including Silviniaco Conti (7/2) and Cue Card (8/1), Last Instalment (8/1) and First Lieutenant (16/1), although much can change ahead of the actual race. Indeed this is why some people prefer to hold off until closer to race time.

In the meantime, they can play horse racing slots games at an online casino like while waiting. These games, like the three reel slot machine game “Who wants to be a Stallionaire”, have seen growing numbers of horse racing (and other sports) fans turning their attentions to casino gaming. The availability of apps for your phone from mobile casino sites has only furthered this process, by enabling people to play horse racing slots like “Who Wants to be a Stallionaire” from any location – even when they are at the races.

This particular game has a lot to recommend it to racing fans, including a $5000 jackpot and a Beat the Bookie bonus game perfectly tailored to their interests, making it the horse racing slot that wins by a nose.
