The field for the 2009 King George VI Chase is down to 14 horses with Kauto Star still the favourite for the Grade 1 feature on Boxing Day at Kempton Park.
Horses that were taken out of the field in the latest forfeit stage include In Compliance and Schindlers Hunt, both trained by Dessie Hughes, as well as What A Friend and Cooldine who are both headed for the Lexus Chase. Joe Lively and Chief Dan George will also not take part in this year’s race.
Irish raider Schindlers Hunt, a dual Grade 1 chase winner, is being primed for the King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day and will bypass the Lexus Chase.
The nine year old was fourth in the Amlin 1965 Chase at Ascot and was runner-up to Notre Pere in the Punchestown Guinness Gold Cup and trainer Dessie Hughes thinks that Kempton Park and the King George VI Chase will suit him.
