2020 King George VI Chase Betting Tips and Trends

King George VI Chase Free Tips

Staged at Kempton Park racecourse on Boxing Day (26th Dec) the King George VI Chase is the highlight contest on the festive racing calendar as ‘once-a-year’ punters try and get their Christmas turkeys paid for by the bookies.

With star names like Desert Orchid, One Man and, more recently, Kauto Star, who won the King George Chase a staggering five times, amongst the household names to land this decent pot then the 3m Grade One race never fails to attract the best longer distance chasers in training, while it’s also seen as a good guide to that season’s Cheltenham Gold Cup.

We take a look back at recent winners and highlight the key stats to take into the 2020 renewal – this year run on Saturday Dec 26th, where the Paul Nicholls-trained Clan Des Obeaux, who has landed the last two renewals, will be trying to defend his crown.
