Tagged under: 3.20 Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup Steeple Chase 3m 2 1/2f

The Hennessey Gold Cup tomorrow at Newbury is certainly the top race of the NH season to-date and all eyes will be on Denman who attempts to win the race for the second year running and third time in the last four runnings .

Whilst much has been written about the fact Denman has a very difficult task at the weights , he is carrying 8lb more than when winning last year , "The Tank" runs very well when fresh ,loves Newbury and both his trainer and jockey are confident he can win it .

Jockey Sam Thomas who won on Denman in the Hennessy in 2007 takes the ride and is full of confidence ,"Denman is up in the weights but he doesn't know that. He's been top-weight throughout his career and it's not a problem."

Trainer Paul Nicholls was ecstatic following a racecourse workout at Wincanton earlier this week and believes Denman is the one the others have to beat .

Online bookmaker Blue Square offer tempting odds of 25/1 for Denman to pull off a remarkable double and follow up a Hennessy victory tomorrow with his second Cheltenham Gold Cup win at the Festival in March .

It is the stuff dreams are made of but all racing fans will watch the race tomorrow just hoping that "The Tank" can pull it off .
