This Saturday’s Grade 3 Greatwood Gold Cup is a Handicap Chase staged at Newbury racecourse and is always a hotly-contested event. The race is run over a distance of 2m4f and is currently sponsored by BetVictor, who are also supporting the Greatwood Veterans. It was first run in 2004 and since then has been dominated by top UK National Hunt trainer Paul Nicholls – who has won the race a staggering nine times – therefore, anything he runs should be respected.
Here at JUICESTORM we look back at recent winners of the race and give you all the key trends to take into the 2022 renewal – this year run on Saturday 5th March – for example, did you know 15 of the last 17 winners were aged 8 or younger?

JUICESTORM VERDICT: A race the Paul Nicholls yard love to target – winning the pot a staggering 9 times in the last 17 runnings. They have Amour De Nuit and Tamaroc Du Mathan entered. Plenty of key betting trends to note though, including 15 of the last 17 winners aged 8 or younger, while 16 of the last 17 winners carried 11st 5lbs or less in weight. Taking these two key stats into account the Fergal O’Brien runner – DUBLIN FOUR (e/w) – stands out. This 8 year-old has only 10st 6lbs to carry and despite falling last time out at Ludlow was a nice winner over this course and distance prior to that. In fact, he’s won his last two races at Newbury, so we know the track suits. He’s only 4lbs higher than that last win and connections have given him plenty of time to get over that recent tumble with a 2 ½ month break. That absence is also not a big concern as he came back from 200 days off in November to win here at Newbury. Paddy Brennan rides. Glen Forsa bounced back to winning form at Musselburgh last time and will have his backers, but at 10 falls down on the age trend (15 of the last 17 aged 8 or younger), Senior Citizen (4th last year) and Amoola Gold have all had their supporters in the build-up to the race, while the Venetia Williams yard, who won this in 2014, have a fair hand with the 7 year-old Farinet. But it’s hard to ignore the good record of the Paul Nicholls yard. As mentioned, they run two – Amour De Nuit and TAMAROC DU MATHAN (e/w) – with the last-named of interest with Harry Cobden riding. This 7 year-old ticks a fair few of the main trends and with 11st 6lbs is only just over the key weight stat. He’ll be much fitter for a recent fifth at Sandown, which came off a 3 ½ month break and after a wind operation too. With only six runs over fences (2 wins) you feel there is more to come from this Nicholls chaser, who still has plenty of time on his side.
