The King George VI Chase is a Grade 1 National Hunt horse race for four-year-old and above horses. It is run over a distance of 3 miles at Kempton Park Racecourse each year on Boxing Day and is one of the highlights of the season.

A potentially classic renewal of the King George this year with Might Bite aiming to defend the crown he in such brilliant style last year but it won't be easy against some up and coming contenders.

We already know that the hugely talented Might Bite will be one of the King George Chase Runners, and he looks likely to start as the warm favourite in the King George Chase Odds following a stellar couple of years.

For many it is a race that really challenges the very best and is probably second to the Cheltenham Gold Cup in terms of prestige.

Waiting Patiently has proven to be a terrific horse for Ruth Jefferson over the past year and has long been aimed at Kempton which has to put him the frame to win the King George. Another runner to consider is Bristol De Mai who was last seen scorching to victory in the Betfair Chase at Haydock and is hoping to complete the 2nd leg of the famed triple crown.
