Gold Cup Review

By 6th June 2016

Gold Futures, trained by Nicky Richards at Penrith, beat the 11-10 fav Menorah in a thrilling finish to the £25,000 Pentland Land Rover-sponsored Perth Gold Cup in front of an 8000-strong crowd at Perth on Sunday.

Ridden by 43-year-old Irishman Brian Harding, Gold Futures (7-2) led in the final 110 yards to beat the former Cheltenham and Aintree festival winner Menorah by five lengths at the sun-drenched Scone track.

“Although there were only five runners, this was a high-class renewal of the Perth Gold Cup with two Grade One winners in the field,” said a delighted Richards.

“We were getting 24lb from Menorah and my horse is still improving as he is only a seven-year-old,” added Richards.

Menorah’s rider Richard Johnson paid tribute to the Somerset raider’s brave effort under top-weight of 11st 12lb.

“He’s given his all but the weight just proved too much for him today,” said the champion jockey.

Rainy City (4-11 fav), trained in Somerset by Paul Nicholls and ridden by Sam Twiston-Davies, won the Range Rover Sport Novices’ Hurdle in great style for owner Sir Alex Ferguson.

Dubai Shen (17-2) and Buckled (5-1) sealed a Borders brace and Richard Johnson won the finale on Bingo Conti (5-6 fav).
