Race 5 from Perth on Sunday is the Perth Gold Cup Handicap Chase, a big test of stamina over a 3 mile trip.

This is a GBB Class 2 race which is open to 4 year olds and above and it’s a good-looking field as well lining up.

IMADA is the current favourite, one of ten declared runners for the trip.

Imada the 3/1 favourite for Perth Gold Cup Handicap Chase

IMADA put a win on the board on his last trip. That was at Bangor in a pretty similar 3m test of endurance. It was the fifth trip only that he had had over the fences.

So that was a good score under handicap terms as well and to add to his strong claims for this one, he has won at Perth before.

You can put it all together and see that the lightly-raced chaser should be in the picture as the 3/1 favourite* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:12 GMT on Saturday, August 29th 2020).



As You Like is one to keep on side

There should be a very strong challenge coming from AS YOU LIKE who was in great form last season. He made his return, just like Imada, scoring a win.

His happened at Southwell in an extended 3m effort and he looked comfortable and at ease pulling clear. There was more in the tank from him there.

There is a 4lb rise that he deals with, but looks good enough to offset that.

As You Like is our pick for this one at 9/2 quote* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:12 GMT on Saturday, August 29th 2020).

More Buck’s

MORE BUCK’S is an interesting player here as he is a previous course and distance winner. He will have the cheekpieces on for the first time in this to try and sharpen him up.

He is lower in the weights and well handicapped on the back of what he has produced. It’s been a solid return to action, aside from pulling up at Market Rasen, where he was uncharacteristically off his jumping game.

He can be supported for a bounce back performance though and can bring some solid place claims from a 10/1 quote* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:12 GMT on Saturday, August 29th 2020).

Boy’s On Tour

Looking at a big each-way shot from 12/1 is BOY’S ON TOUR* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:12 GMT on Saturday, August 29th 2020). He has a bit of track experience, finishing in his two previous goes over the fences at Perth.

At a 122 mark, that’s a career-high for him here, but he looks to have the stamina in him to make a decent play at this one.

Just three weeks ago he came good to score in a 20f handicap and he will have a 3lb claimer on his back to offset some of the 7lb rise.

The Young Master

THE YOUNG MASTER comes back after a wind operation, so it will be interesting to see how the veteran goes. He was last seen at the Summer Cup Handicap at Uttoxeter where he looked game enough.

The Young Master took third in that contest and he stays at the same mark. But even with that said he’s at a massive weight disadvantage in this contest.

The Young Master is a 7/1 contender* (betting odds taken from Betway at 23:12 GMT on Saturday, August 29th 2020).

The Rest Of The Runners

SOUPY SOUPS scored a course and distance win last season. He finished behind Imada a Bangor recently though and didn’t look in great jumping form.

AMALFI DOUG was third behind Boy’s On Tour three weeks ago, but ran well. He comes down 2lb for that effort as well and has enough to get in the places.

RED GIANT looks a little short of quality for this one. He got a course and distance win last season at 4lb higher. But he was really poor last time out this season.

FORTUNES HIDING could have the stamina to get in the mix. He scored on his return, his first run since wind surgery last month at this venue. He beat Boy’s On Tour in that one too. He is one to consider for the shortlist.

TRONGATE has had a steady season with two runs under his belt. It’s been a while since he has won, however, but this looks a very big ask of him.

Predictions & Tips for Perth Gold Cup Handicap Chase Racing Odds

This is one to look forward to and we are going to ASK YOU LIKE for our pick. He is moving very well and after his Southwell score, looks ready to deliver again.

We have to keep BOY’S ON TOUR on side as well for this trick who will be facing a 7lb rise, but he looks in a really good mood and should be competitive regardless.

We are a little on the fence about IMADA but after the Bangor success with some of this field behind, he can’t be ignored. He was jumping very well there and had a course and distance win.
