2015 King George VI Chase Form Guide

Vautour

The Willie Mullins trained Vautour has been aimed at the King George Chase ever since he won the JLT Novices Chase at the Cheltenham Festival and there is no doubting he is a top class animal. A former winner of the Supreme Novices Hurdle down at 2m, connections are convinced he will be just as good at 3m although punters backing him at Kempton will be taking that on faith as he tries the trip for the first time. His re-appearance at Ascot was only ok by his standards but we can expect to be fine tuned for this one. Class in buckets.

Don Cossack

The highest rated chaser in training last season, Don Cossack is a real talking horse and he has to be a genuine contender on Boxing Day. The Gigginstown owned horse has won twice this season at a canter, including in the JNWine Champion Chase last time, and has been prepared for the King George for some time now. We know the trip won't be a problem but there is no doubt this is his toughest task yet. An excellent jumper, Gordon Elliott thinks the world of Don Cossack and on the ratings at least, he is the one to beat.

Cue Card

Few horses have been as good as Cue Card over fences the past few years and it is fair to say that the Colin Tizzard trained horse looked better than ever recently when he stormed to victory to win the Betfair Chase. A former Champion Bumper and Ryanair Chase winner, Cue Card looked back to his old self at Haydock as he jumped and travelled like a good thing before pulling miles clear of Silviniaco Conti which is top form by any standard. Only worry is that he has had three chances in the King George before without winning and this year could be an even tougher ask.
