Cossack Rushing Up Gold Cup Market

Don Cossack has been installed in to the Cheltenham Gold Cup market at 8/1 with William Hill following his victory in the Punchestown Gold Cup.

Don Cossack got the better of Djakadam and Road To Riches to win the €120,000 race and joins Coneygree and Don Poli at odds of 8/1 for next year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Vautour is the current 4/1 favourite with William Hill. “Next year’s Gold Cup market is in the embryonic stage but Don Cossack is already a fully-fledged contender,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
