Bet365 Gold Cup Trends 2015
Mon, Apr 20th, 2015

The traditional GB jumps season finale takes place at Sandown Park on 25th April. The two feature races on the card are the Celebration Chase over 2 miles and Bet365 Gold Cup over an extended 3 mile trip. The Bet365 Gold Cup has a great history - mainly under the guise of The Whitbread and the roll of honour includes great horses such as Arkle, Mill House and Desert Orchid.

This years finale will have its own little bit of history as the most prolific jumps jockey of all time - Anthony Peter McCoy - call time on his career and collects his 20th successive jockeys championship.
