London Gold Cup Lunch 2022

Our 2022 London Gold Cup Lunch features the big race card from Cheltenham, with two very special guests. England’s iconic left back Stuart ‘Psycho’ Pearce will be joined by none other than British boxing legend and former world champion, David ‘The Hayemaker’ Haye!

Our annual Lunch will once again take place in the England Suite, at one of the world’s most famous and iconic cricket grounds, The Oval. The Cheltenham Gold Cup is the most important steeplechase in the world, with the names of some of racing’s greatest equine superstars etched on the coveted trophy. Our two special guests are sure to get into the swing of things as the action unfolds, and guests will have the opportunity to hear at length from these two sporting icons. Our regular tipster, Grand National-winning jockey Brendan Powell will also give his thoughts on a cracking card at Cheltenham.

Our all-inclusive package included a three-course meal, complimentary bar, big-screen coverage of the racing, and the chance to hear from two of Britain’s sporting heroes.

David Haye: ‘The Hayemaker’ dominated the Cruiserweight division, unifying titles wins over Jean-Marc Mormeck and Enzo Maccarinelli. At Heavyweight, he quickly established himself, winning the WBA belt by defeating giant Russian Nikolay Valuev. Victories over John Ruiz and Audley Harrison set up a unification bout against Wladimir Klitchsko, with the Ukranian proving victorious on points. Victory over Dereck Chisora followed, before David hung up his gloves for over three years. David couldn’t resist the lure of the ring, and following quickfire wins over Mark De Mori and Arnold Gjergjaj, his bout with Tony ‘Bomber’ Bellew was one of the biggest ever all-British fights, resulting in an incredibly brave 11th round defeat, despite rupturing his right Achilles tendon. A rematch was inevitable, and in May 2018 David fought Bellew again, losing in the 5th Round, and prompting retirement for the battle-weary 37 year old. David will be remembered as one of Britain’s best boxers of recent decades finishing his career with a superb record of 28 wins from 32 fights, with an incredible 26 victories by way of knockout.

Stuart Pearce: After starting out at lowly Wealdstone in non-league football, Stuart Pearce went on to become one of the finest full backs in Europe, spending most of his League career at Nottingham Forest. A fixture in the England line-up for over a decade, Stuart won 78 caps for his country, playing alongside the likes of Alan Shearer, Tony Adams and Paul Gascoigne. His no-nonsense style, allied to his eye for goal and thunderbolt shooting won him legions of fans. After hanging up his boots Stuart managed Manchester City, before enjoying a seven year stint as England U-21 boss, and managing the Great Britain side at the 2012 Olympics. More recently he managed Forest in 2014-15, and last season was assistant to David Moyes at West Ham.

Brendan Powell:We are delighted to once again be joined for the afternoon by Brendan Powell, who as well as offering his tips and advice on the day’s racing, will be sharing one or two stories from his great career in racing. A prolific jockey during the 1980s and 1990s with 684 career winners, Brendan most famous triumph came aboard 10-1 shot Rhyme ‘n’ Reason in the 1988 Grand National; after nearly falling at Becher’s Brook first time around, he settled the horse at the back, before coming through to lead five out. After being headed by Durham Edition at the second last, horse and rider showed astonishing courage to fight back to land the world’s most famous steeplechase. Now a jumps trainer, Brendan is sure to offer some shrewd insight into today’s runners and riders, and a few tales from his thrilling career!

Dave Fulton: Dave enjoyed a 15-year first class cricket career with Kent, playing in 200 first class matches with an average of almost 40, and over 100 limited overs games. His best professional season came in 2001, when he scored an incredible 1892 first class runs at an average of just under 76, being crowned Player of the Year by the Professional Cricketers’ Association. He also took the catch to dismiss Viv Richards in his final first class innings! Since retiring from the game in 2006, Dave has forged a career as a leading sports journalist, appearing regularly on Sky Sports’ cricket coverage and as a presenter for Sky Sports News. We’re delighted he’s hosting our 2021 Gold Cup Lunch!

England Suite at The Oval: One of the world’s oldest and most iconic cricket grounds, The Oval has been the home of Surrey CCC since 1845; it was the first English ground to host Test cricket, and internationals have been played here ever since. The England Suite is the Kia Oval’s premier facility; situated on the second floor of the OCS Stand (pictured, on match day), it offers a fantastic view of the famous Oval wicket and abundant natural daylight. Food and service are of the calibre you would expect from the premium facility at a world class stadium. Fully air-conditioned, the Suite offers two in-room bars, and with easy tube access from the Northern and Victoria Lines, this is the perfect setting for our event!
