Bobs Worth Stars In Argento Chase Betting

Cheltenham Gold Cup ante-post favourite Bobs Worth will be one of the star attractions on Festival Trials Day, as the impressive Hennessy Gold Cup winner will look to cement his place at the head of the Gold Cup betting by bagging victory in Saturday's Argento Chase, which is all set to take place providing Prestbury Park can gain warmer conditions.

Clerk of the course Simon Claisse has voiced his concerns about the state of the weather and heavy snowfall over the last couple of days, twinned with freezing conditions has put the meeting in jeopardy, but if it does get the green light then Bobs Worth will be a major crowd-draw.

Installed around the Even money mark by bookmakers in the Argento Chase betting, Nicky Henderson's star performer has a fine record at the course after back-to-back Cheltenham Festival wins, and if he is to be a genuine Gold Cup contender then he will need to produce a solid performance on Saturday.

He will face some stiff opposition in the three-mile, one-and-a-half furlong contest as Paul Nicholls's Tidal Bay will be aiming to build on a magical Lexus Chase win, where he nailed the Irish triumvirate of Flemenstar, Sir Des Champs and First Lieutenant in the closing stages.

Apart from the Ditcheat veteran, 2010 Gold Cup hero Imperial Commander will be making his comeback appearance after a lengthy absence and Nigel Twiston-Davies will be hoping he can show some of his old form, whilst David Pipe's Grands Crus will be another looking to cement his place at the Festival, in just under 50 days and they will be integral cogs for what could be an informative renewal at the weekend.
