William Hill King George - Kauto popular..again!
With the rain continuing to fall at Kempton, and conditions set to be very testing on Boxing Day, Kauto Stone has been the subject of significant support for the William Hill King George.
Having been a 10/1 chance this morning, the money has come for Kauto Star's half-brother since lunchtime, and he now trades at 8/1.
William Hill spokesman, Richard Thomas, said, "The name Kauto has been synonymous with the William Hill King George for the last six years, and now his half-brother could be the toast of punters next Wednesday. With a CV chock full of soft ground wins, we have been inundated with cash for Kauto today, and his current price of 8/1 could be well a lot shorter next week. The combination of Paul Nicholls and Ruby Walsh is always popular and Kauto Stone could become one of the biggest Boxing Day gambles if the rain continues to fall."
