Bobs Worth: Should be favourite for the Cheltenham Gold Cup

Sky Bet

Barry Geraghty believes that Saturday's Hennessy Gold Cup winner Bobs Worth deserves to be the ante-post favourite for the Cheltenham Gold Cup in March.

Last season's RSA Chase winner, trained by Nicky Henderson, turned in a virtuoso display when defeating Tidal Bay by three and a quarter lengths.

Geraghty told At The Races: "The only concern I had was traffic and congestion (in a big field), but he took to it.

"He's a very easy ride. He just does as much as you ask him to do - nothing really flash - but every time you ask for a little bit of an effort, he delivers.

"He has the right profile (for the Gold Cup) - he's an RSA winner and is four from four at Cheltenham.

"There's every reason for Bobs Worth to be at the head of the market."
