2020 Cheltenham Festival – How Many Irish-Trained Winners?
With the presence of the Irish-trained horses increasing by the year at the Cheltenham Festival then ‘How Many Irish Trained Winners’ is another popular market in the build-up, and even in-play during the four-days action.
Irish-trained runners, and those stabled in Britain, fight it out each year over the four days for the Prestbury Cup. Whoever wins the most races takes the prize, a draw (14-14) and the honours are shared – it’s as simple as that!
If we look back over recent festivals, we’ll see that in 2013 the Irish had a record 14 winners from the 27 races (52%), while in 2014 they weren’t far behind with 12 Cheltenham Festival successes, while in 2015 and 2016 they fired in 13 winners each year.
In 2018 it was pretty much more of the same too as the Irish-trained horses landed 17 of the 28 races, with the British runners grabbing 11.
However, the UK-based runners fought back in 2019, winning 14 of the 28 races, with the Irish mopping-up the other 14 – meaning a draw for the first time since 2013.
So, with the British-trained runners bouncing back last year, things are set up for another fascinating clash over the four days. With that in mind, the betting on the Prestbury Cup is another way to have an interest in EVERY race over the four-day Cheltenham Festival.
The 2020 Prestbury Cup Cheltenham Festival Betting: The current betting sees Ireland around 4/7, GB are on offer around 9/4, with the draw 6/1. (odds subject to change).
Here are some of the main challengers for both the Irish and the UK-based handlers that are heading to the 2020 Cheltenham Festival.
