Who is the most iconic winner of the feature race of the Festival?
Naming the greatest winner of all-time is a particularly contentious topic, and it is a title to which several horses can stake a claim to, including multiple winners of the race Golden Miller, Arkle and Best Mate.
However, it is difficult to begrudge the claims of the great Kauto Star, who ran in the race on six occasions in total, winning twice. After switching to Paul Nicholls from France in 2004, Kauto Star quickly built a profile of a chaser to watch, and having fallen on his first visit to the Cheltenham Festival in the 2006 Champion Chase, he put together a stunning six-race win streak the following season, which included the Betfair Chase, the Tingle Creek and the King George VI Chase, and culminated in victory in the 2007 race. Victories in the Betfair Chase, the King George and the Ascot Chase followed a year later, but Kauto Star was thwarted in his follow-up bid in the Gold Cup by stablemate Denman, a result which forged one of the greatest rivalries the sport has ever seen.
The pair would return to do battle a year later, and it was Kauto Star who came out on top this time around, defeating the admirable Denman - who had suffered a career-threatening heart murmur the previous season - and becoming the first horse to ever regain the trophy. A fall in the 2010 edition of the race meant that Kauto Star and Denman were very much considered the old guard by the time the 2011 renewal came around, but they served up one of the great moments in the race’s recent history around the final bend, when settling down to do battle one last time. The younger legs of the Nicky Henderson-trained Long Run would eventually prevail, though, with Denman finishing second and Kauto Star third. A below-par performance at Punchestown the following month prompted talks of retirement, though Kauto Star had one final season up his sleeve, sealing Grade 1 number 15 when striking in the Betfair Chase at Haydock, before winning a scarcely-believable fifth King George at Kempton a month later. Kauto Star would sign off on an anti-climax, being pulled up on his swansong in the 2012 race, but he bowed out as one of the greatest performers that National Hunt racing has ever seen.
Are there any trials for the race?
There are several key indicators for the biggest race of the Festival throughout the season, with the most important of those being the Betfair Chase at Haydock, the King George at Kempton and the Ascot Chase. Each of the Charlie Hall (Wetherby), the Ladbrokes Trophy (Newbury), the Cotswold Chase (Cheltenham) and the Denman Chase (Newbury) also hold great significance, while over in Ireland it’s worth keeping a close eye on the Jnwine.com Champion Chase at Down Royal, the John Durkan Memorial Chase at Punchestown and the Savills Chase and the Irish Gold Cup, which are both held at Leopardstown.
Who is the most successful jockey in the history of the race?
The most successful jockey in the history of the Gold Cup is Pat Taaffe, who won the race on four occasions with Arkle (1964, 1965, and 1966) and Fort Leney (1968).
Who is the most successful trainer in the history of the race?
The most successful trainer in the history of the race is Tom Dreaper, who won the race on five occasions, training Prince Regent (1946), Arkle (1964, 1965, and 1966), and Fort Leney (1968).
