Cheltenham - (Lasix Mess): The Clint Eastwood-owned 50/1 shot wonderhorse Afistfullofdollars could be the surprise upset in Friday's Cheltenham Gold Cup romp to glory between odds-on favortite Kauto Star and top Irish contender Denman.

Internet spread-betting bookmaker Aintgottaprayer.con has reported a wall of money for the smart ten year-old supplemented today by trainer Noel Meade for Friday's National Hunt blue riband event.

"This nonsense about a replay of the '64 Arkle/Mill House needle match is pure banter," a bookies' source said today.

"We think Clint Eastwood's stalking horse has the balls to beat both the favorite Kauto Star and second favorite Denman, because the other two are geldings.

"We slashed the odds from 66/1 this morning. And at this rate will have to halve them by Monday.

"You have been warned."
