Stan James pick up from ToteSport

Fred Done and the team at Betfred chose to maintain sponsorship of the Cheltenham Gold Cup after they picked up the “Nanny”, but they have let the Chester Gold Cup go.

The Sponsorship has been picked up by Gibraltar based Stan James. Dennis Kelly of Stan James has signed on the line that is doted in a deal rolling up to 2014.

The first Cup will take place on May the 9th.

The race is for four year olds and upwards and historically has race over an extended trip of 2miles, 2 furlongs and a few extra yards for good measure.

Champion Hurdle Contendor Overturn reigning Chester Cup Winner

The winner of the last race is smart young hurdler Overturn, a horse that gamely leads but tends to get done in the final couple of furlongs when in top company. Having raced in the International at Cheltenham and behind Binocular in the Christmas Hurdle it’s priced 33/1 for the Champion Hurdle.

I have been involved in the betting industry since the late 90’s and have in that time worked for a on course bookmaker (at now much missed Catford Dogs), spent time at a leading spread betting company, and worked for Betfair in their two year start-up phase.

In 2007 I co-founded iGaming supplier Hyperion Gaming with long suffering business partner Alex Lafferty.

Being involved in the industry for so long has given me a good understanding of the wonderful world of online gambling, and I put effort into giving honest opinions, that remain my own!
