Joe Lively, who’s last win was at Cheltenham in January, is doubtful to run in this year’s King George VI Chase at Kempton Park on December 26.
The 10 year old, trained by Colin Tizzard, has already been removed from antepost betting at event sponsor William Hill, where he last had odds of 66/1. If Joe Lively is indeed out then the field for this year’s race will be down to 18 horses.
Our Vic’s odds for the King George VI Chase at Kempton Park on December 26 have been slashed from 50/1 to 33/1 at William Hill after winning the £40,000 totesport.com Chase at Warwick last Sunday, his 12th career win and first in 18 months.
The race looked like it was going to unravel for the 11 year old Our Vic after forcing the pace early with Miss Mitch. He gave away several lengths after an awkward jump four fences from home and a slow jump at the next fence.
There will be a number of possible runners for this year’s King George VI Chase in action at the Newbury Winter Festival between November 26 – 28.
The highlight of the Newbury Winter Festival is the Hennessy Gold Cup on Saturday November 28. In it’s 50th yeah, the Hennessy Gold Cup is a Grade 3 National Hunt chase open to 4 year olds and over. Last year’s winner Madison du Berlais is a possible runner in this year’s King George Chase.
With the entries in for the upcoming King George VI Chase sponsors William Hill have set defending champion Kauto Star as even money favourite.
The reigning Gold Cup winner will be attempting to make history by winning his fourth consecutive King George Chase and equal Desert Orchid’s record of four total wins.
