Denman Odds Cheltenham Gold Cup 2011

18th March 2011 / Lee A Jackson
Cheltenham Festival

Denman Odds for the Cheltenham Gold Cup 2011 look to be treading the fine line between the great champion reliving past glories, or him getting pushed out by stronger contenders. Denman is one of the great chasers of all time, and he will be a popular figure when he takes to the track once more as he looks to add another success to his 2008 triumph in the race. Trainer Paul Nicholls has been putting Denman through his paced, giving a gallop to him and his stable mate Kauto Star. This is all after the horse having to undergo surgery to correct his breathing. One of the big concerns for Denman, was that Nicholls was noticing that he was labouring in the closing stages of races, including the Hennessey, which was won by Diamond Harry. Denman, although he was carrying a lot weight, still ran a pretty strong race, but was visibly running short when it came to the final stretch. It was decided that surgery on his soft palate was needed, and Denman since has been breathing new life into his 2011 Cheltenham Gold Cup Challenge. Best Odds on Denman have the former champion out as fourth favourite at the moment, best priced at 7/1 at Boylesports at the moment. The bookmakers are unsure of what kind of challenge that he can make, as so he makes for a great price at the moment, and is worth considering for an outside bet. Does Denman have enough left in him to challenge Imperial Commander, Kauto Star and the younger, fresher legs of Long Run? His breathing difficulties have apparently all been cleared up now, and Nicholls, with his vast experience, looks to have made the right call on Denman.

Denman Odds for the Cheltenham Gold Cup 2011
are still viable as an outright winner, as he has been training hard, as Nicholls gets him primed for the big race. Denman has been working over racecourse gallops, around a distance of a couple of miles, to help build the stamina. Denman is perhaps not as quick as he once was, but he is a fantastic jumper and can never be discounted. This is why Best Odds on Denman still represents such great value, as the ten year old still has a pretty strong chance in this enduring race. He has a good record of course in the prestigious race, never finishing outside of the top two in his three attempts. Denman is a forceful runner and he should still have the class to force his way to the front of the pack, and there shouldn’t be any doubts about him keeping up with the harsh Gold Cup pace. He may not have the legs, but this is a real trooper and will run until he drops. If the surgery has cleared his breathing, then there is no reason why Denman cannot get one over on his old rivals. The best thing he can do is put pressure on the other runners, in what promises to be an epic Gold cup. He has the strength and the fight, more so than Kauto Star some pundits are suggesting, and that means Denman Odds for the Cheltenham Gold Cup 2011 should not mean that you dismiss the great horse’s chances altogether. He was carrying top weight in the Hennessey remember, and still ran so very well, admirably even.

Can Denman hold off his old foes to pick up his second career Gold Cup title? Best Odds on Denman have him out longer that his rivals, so a victory will come against the odds. Still, the jury is out on him, as you can find much shorter prices around for Denman, even matching the price of Kauto Star at the moment. So don’t write the great Denman off from the 2011 Gold Cup, he will chase hard.
