Don Polio Future Gold Cup Horse?
Don Poli is now 6-1 from 8-1 for the 2015 RSA Chase after landing the Topaz Novice Chase at Leopardstown, however Willie Mullins remained coy over his likely target for Cheltenham and William Hill offer odds of 11-4 from 9-2 that Don Poli wins any race at the 2015 Cheltenham Festival.
His trainer also mentioned the possibility that Don Poli could be a future Gold Cup horse, but perhaps next season and he is 20-1 with William Hill to win the 2016 Cheltenham Gold Cup.
“Don Poli looks a chaser going places and after that performance we expect him to be popular in the betting markets between now and March,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
