Galopin Des Champs Evens to win the Gold Cup at Cheltenham

We have priced up favourite Galopin Des Champs at Evens to pick up the big prize at the Cheltenham Festival this week as attention turns to Friday's Gold Cup.

Willie Mullins' eight-year-old was victorious in last year's showpiece event as he finished seven lengths clear of Bravemansgame in second, while Conflated finished third at odds of 22/1.

He was subsequently runner-up to Fastorslow in the Punchestown Gold Cup a month later, before finishing third on his seasonal reappearance in the John Durkan Memorial Chase, again won by Martin Brassil's Fastorslow.

The Savills Chase at Leopardstown over Christmas provided Galopin Des Champs with a return to the winners' enclosure, as he was first home in a stellar field that included Gold Cup contender Gerri Colombe, Grand National antepost favourite I Am Maximus and 2022 Gold Cup champion A Plus Tard.

His last outing provided the latest instalment of the rivalry between Galopin Des Champs and Fastorslow, but it was the Mullins superstar who prevailed on this occasion, staying on superbly after a strong challenge approaching the final fence.

The duo will go head-to-head on the final day of this year's Cheltenham Festival and with Bravemansgame, L'Homme Presse and Corach Rambler also in contention, it promises to be one of the most exciting Gold Cups in recent times.

Galopin Des Champs could follow in the footsteps of Al Boum Photo by winning the race in successive years, a feat that legends such as Best Mate and Arkle also achieved.
