Paddy Power Gold Cup 2012
Fri, Nov 9th, 2012

The Paddy Power Gold Cup is the feature event on the middle day of the three day Cheltenham November meeting.

It is a handicap chase run over 2 miles 4.5 furlongs. Timmy Murphy had his third win in the race last year. It was David Pipe's first win but his father had landed 6 of the previous 14 !

Nigel Twiston Davies trained runners should also be respected. He has sent out Little Josh and Imperial Commander to claim two of the last four renewals. The subsequent Ryanair and Gold Cup winner Imperial Commander got into the race of an official rating of 139, and all of the last fifteen winners have come from a ratings band between 136-154.
