Sporting Life Preview

A brilliant race in prospect. Boston Bob beat a strong line-up a year ago though this looks even tougher. Willie Mullins also runs On His Own, who was the better fancied of the pair that day but ran poorly, and the Gold Cup runner-up DJAKADAM (NAP). The latter produced an outstanding performance for a six-year-old at Cheltenham where he looked like winning after the last. Dropping back in trip won't be a problem and he can again take car of Road To Riches, who gets better with every run and was only a couple of lengths behind and will also be suited by the less demanding track and shorter trip. Don Cossack didn't quite get the run of the race in the Ryanair but showed his true worth in the Grade 1 Melling Chase at Aintree where he had 26l to spare over Cue Card. He has to prove himself against genuine stayers over this trip but Paul Carberry is likely to nurse him round. Ballynagour ran the race of his life when beaten a head by Silviniaco Conti in the Betfred Bowl and a similar level of form should see him in contention.

Oddschecker Verdict

The Gold Cup form is beginning to look very strong and DJAKADAM, second in the blue riband at Cheltenham, can go one place better. The six-year-old proved he is right out of the top drawer when finding only Coneygree too good last month and he has Road To Riches (third), On His Own (fifth) and last year's winner Boston Bob (10th) held on that form. Add to that Silviniaco Conti (seventh) and Holywell (fourth) finishing first and third respectively in a Grade 1 at Aintree and Many Clouds (sixth) won the Grand National at the Liverpool track, and we could be talking about one of the best renewals of the Gold Cup for many years. Don Cossack rates the main danger to Willie Mullins' charge following his 26-length demolition of Cue Card in the Melling Chase.

Prediction: 1st Djakadam, 2nd Don Cossack, 3rd Road To Riches
