The 2010 winner, Long Run, is 10-3 favourite with Coral to win this year’s King George VI Chase, ahead of last year’s Feltham Chase hero, Grand Crus, at 5-1, following the latest entry stage for the Kempton showpiece.
“All the leading chasers are engaged in this year’s King George, and with five-time winner Kauto Star out of the picture, Long Run heads the betting to repeat his 2010 success, although he could face a strong challenge, headed by recent big race winners, Silviniaco Conti and Kauto Stone, and the current Gold Cup favourite, Sir Des Champs,” Coral’s David Stevens told betrescue.com
