The 2011 Cheltenham Gold Cup will be the highlight of the week at the Cheltenham Festival and the full result will be of interest to most punters at the end of a brilliant week of racing. It is looking like a top class field for the race and just as soon as the horses cross the line we will have the result here including starting prices and places for the the top four.
The crowd roared as the old heroes Kauto Star and Denman hit the front heading to the last fence with the younger Long Run just in behind them. In the end it was Long Run who had youth on his side to take the win ahead of Denman who ran a sensational race at 11 years old with Kauto Star back in third.
