Connections for both Kauto Star and Imperial Commander are happy with the condition of their chasers after their epic battle in the Betfair Chase at Haydock last Saturday. Kauto Star won by a nose from Imperial Commander after the lead was traded back and forth between them.
The King George VI Chase could now see a rematch between these two impressive horses. While Kauto Star is almost certain to run in the Grade 1 race on Boxing Day, Imperial Commander’s impressive run at Haydock has meant that he is now a possibility for the King George VI Chase as well.
Kauto Star held off a late rally from Imperial Commander to win the Betfair Chase at Haydock, his 12th Grade 1 win.
But Imperial Commander did not make it easy for the Star, rallying late to be neck and neck going to the post. After a tense wait for the judges to look at the photo finish it was determined that Kauto Star had held on by a nose.
