King George Chase Betting
The King George Chase is one of the big betting races of the National Hunt season, only the Grand National and the Cheltenham Gold Cup surpasses it. This is largely due to it being run on Boxing Day when it can maximise its audience. To a lesser extent but a true one, the race was massively popularised by King George Chase Legend, Desert Orchid who won the race four times in five years between 1986-1990. The race is also often a good one for punters, as many of winners are either favourites or highly placed in the market. See what we think will win by looking at our King George Chase Tips
