2008 Cheltenham Gold Cup
The 2008 Cheltenham Festival was dominated by the match up in the Gold Cup between former winner Kauto Star and the young pretender Denman. Paul Nicholls trained both horses and this was the first time they met, with Denman having carried top weight to victory in the Hennessy Gold Cup and Kauto Star fresh from winning his second King George VI. It was Kauto Star who went off the 10/11 favourite but stablemate Denman obliterated the field with his front running style, eventually winning by seven lengths. Paul Nicholls took all three places with Neptunes Collonges finishing a close third.
