King George VI Chase 2017
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 afternoon with Thistlecrack aiming to defend the crown he won as a novice in 2016. It won't be easy though as he takes on RSA Chase winner Might Bite, and Betfair Chase hero Bristol De Mai.
We already know that the hugely talented Might Bite will be one of the King George Chase Runners, and he looks set to start as the hot favourite in the King George Chase Odds following his impressive win at Sandown on seasonal debut.

King George Chase Odds 2017
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.
Fox Norton was 2nd in the Queen Mother Champion Chase last season, and was last seen finishing 2nd in the Tingle Creek, which means he is a major player today. Another runner to consider is Whisper who was last seen finishing 2nd in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury and is likely to run well.
