WILLIAM HILL KING GEORGE VI CHASE ENTRIES AND SPONSORS BETTING
31 horses have been entered for the 2012 William Hill King George VI Chase on Boxing Day at Kempton Park and the 2010 winner Long Run heads the sponsor's betting as a 4-1 chance. Last year's Feltham winner Grands Crus is next in the betting at 5-1 and RSA winner Bobs Worth is a 10-1 shot.
Kate Miller, William Hill PR Director, said, "Whilst Kauto Star has dominated the William Hill King George for the last six years, the entries this year demonstrate what a fantastic race it is and the legacy of the King George being the mid-season Championship is set to continue. The very best from Ireland, including the unbeaten Sir Des Champs are set to take on the pick of the home challenge, including strong teams from Paul Nicholls, Nicky Henderson and Philip Hobbs. As things stand, we are expecting a competitive field with the winner likely to head the market for the Gold Cup next March."
