King George Chase Form Guide 2014

Silviniaco Conti

Paul Nicholls has farmed the King George over the past decade or so and the Champion Trainer will be hoping for another success this season with the defending champ. Silviniaco Conti was the brilliant winner 12 months ago and that alone is enough to make sure he is respected once again this time. He disappointed first time out in the Charlie Hall Chase but bounced back in brilliant style last month to win the Betfair Chase ahead of Menorah and that looked top quality form. We know he stays the trip with no problem at all and his victory last year ensures he sets the standard in 2014.

Champagne Fever

Champagne Fever is potentially the x factor horse in the race this year with the Willie Mullins trained chaser stepping up to three miles for the first time. The 7-year-old is a former dual Festival winner over two miles while he was chinned in the line in the Arkle last March. Connections have long believed that 3m would suit the horse and he certainly looked good when winning the Clonmel Oil Chase over 2m4f last month., There is no doubting the class of Champagne Fever although punters backing him will be backing his stamina on faith.

Al Ferof

The second of the Paul Nicholls horses in the field this year is the popular grey Al Ferof who is a class act on his day. He is a former winner of the Supreme Novices Hurdle at the Festival while he has also been a top horse over the fences. He was last seen winning the Amlin Chase in very impressive fashion at Ascot and that performance should set him up nicely for a big run on Boxing Day. He was 5th in the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham while he was third in the King George last season and with that in mind, he does make each-way appeal here.
