Four To Follow On Sunday

Alan Thomson, the former Racing Editor at the Daily Record, picks out four to follow on Boxing Day, including the King George VI Chase.


KAUTO STAR (3.00) is a five-star bet to bag his fifth William Hill King George V1 Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day. He was untouchable when scoring here 12 months ago and, on the evidence of his recent run at Down Royal, there is no reason to believe Kauto is any less of a machine this time round. Long Run looks the only conceivable threat.

The big guns are lining up for a crack at the William Hill Christmas Hurdle and reigning champ BINOCULAR (2.25) should have the race run to suit, with front-running Overturn intent on making it a true gallop. The track will suit Starluck and he may be the one to beat on this occasion.

Nicky Henderson has won the concluding handicap chase three years out of the last four and Shakalakaboomboom is sure to make a bold bid for the Lambourn stable. However, Donald McCain’s GLENWOOD KNIGHT (3.35) has looked a horse with potential to do well over the bigger obstacles and can step up on his runner-up effort behind Best Lover at Hexham last month on his chasing debut.

At Wolverhampton, Alan Bailey saddles only the one runner, AMWELL PINOT (2.45). The trainer despatched four runners to the all-weather tracks at Kempton and Lingfield on Wednesday which yielded a winner, two seconds and a third. With the stable clearly in great nick, Amwell Pinot could make a winning Polytrack debut.
