Cheltenham Gold Cup: How to choose between the favourites

Ahead of the Cheltenham Gold Cup we’ve analysed the last 20 races for patterns to help you plan your betting for the big race. We consider the fortunes of past favourites to see whether the wisdom of the crowd can be trusted, along with how the age and rating of horses tends to influence their finishing position. We also look at how much rest the winners typically get beforehand and whether there’s anything in a name.
