2021 Punchestown Gold Cup Trends

Staged at the five-day Punchestown Festival in April the Punchestown Gold Cup is a Grade One contest run over 3m1f.

The race version we see today was first run back in 1999 and since then has been won by some leading names, including Cheltenham Gold Cup winners Imperial Call, Kicking King, War Of Attrition & Don Cossack - while the 2012 Grand National winner, Neptune Collonges, took this twice before he landed the Aintree marathon.

With no race in 2020 due to the Covid situation, the last winner was Kemboy back in 2019.

Did you know? 12 of the last 17 Punchestown Gold Cup winners were aged 7 or 8 years-old, while 13 of the last 17 winners were Irish-trained?

We take a look back at recent Punchestown Gold Cup winners, plus highlight the key stats ahead of the 2021 renewal – this year run on Wednesday 28th April 2021

SUREWIN VERDICT: The Cheltenham Gold Cup winner - Minella Indo - doesn't run, but we've still a cracking renewal. The current champ - Kemboy - is surprisingly the only CD winner in the field and after flopping in the Gold Cup at Cheltenham again, he'll be a different proposition now back on his home turf. He was a good winner of the Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown in Feb and saw off the two-time Cheltenham Gold Cup winner - Al Boum Photo - in this race last time it was run in 2019. Al Boum Photo lines up again and despite not managing to secure that third win at Cheltenham last month, it was still a top effort to be third and only beaten 5 1/2 lengths. He's a big player, but the niggle for me is that he's yet to win here at Punchestown from three runs, while he looked to have a hard race the last day which might have left it's mark.  Fakir D'oudairies bounced back to winning form last time at Aintree in the Marsh Chase, but the concern with him would be the trip - stepping up from 2m4f here to 3m 1/2f. Yes, he ran on well the last day to suggest it's worth another crack, but he's now taking on some top-class stayers. Melon just doesn't win enough for me, but on his day is very useful, so the call is for a British winner in the race with CLAN DES OBEAUX getting the call for Paul Nicholls. The former King George winner returned to form last time out with an easy win in the Betfair Bowl at Aintree and even though the track here at Punchestown is an unknown, he will like the ground and he's still the joint top-rated in the field, with Al Boum Photo - a chance is taken on him backing up that recent 26 length win at Aintree, where he had the likes of Native River and Tiger Roll miles back. If staying the trip Fakir D'oudairies would be interesting, but Kemboy rates the main danger for me at a track we know suits.

SUREWIN VERDICT: The Mark Johnston-trained Nayef Road landed this race last season and the yard have actually won the last two renewals as well, with Dee Ex Bee winning in 2019. The consistent Nayef Road is a horse that rarely runs a bad race and has finished in the first three in 13 of his 19 career races. He's also a horse that's gone well fresh in recent years - winning on his first run back for the last two seasons, so overall it's hard to fault his chance - he should be in the mix and if you are looking for a solid horse that will give you a run for your money, then he's your man! However, this year he won't have an easy task in this race with the 125-rated STRADAVARIUS in the race - a horse that beat Nayef Road by 10 lengths in the Ascot Gold Cup last June. Yes, since then the normally reliable Stradavarius was beaten in the Arc and then in the Long Distance Cup at Ascot - both in October. However, he had excuses those days with the Arc coming over 1m4 and his most-recent defeat coming in softer than ideal ground. He was still beaten a long way last time, but it was clearly a run too bad to be true and only came 13 days after his trip to France. The 'good news' is that he's still only 7 years-old, so certainly has another season or two at this level if back to his best. Plus, with just over 6 months off since to freshen up there's every chance he'll be raring to go again as he gets set for another season of tackling the best 'Cup Races'. He's currently rated 10lbs higher than anything else in the field and back on a quicker surface then he's taken to get back to winning ways for trainer John Gosden and jockey Frankie Dettori. Of the rest, the consistent and improving Ocean Wind and the globe-trotting Prince Of Arran can do best of the rest, but all eyes will be on 'Strady' as he looks to get his career back on track.
