Ladbrokes King George VI Chase preview and odds - Clan Des Obeaux tipped for King George hat-trick
Clan Des Obeaux tipped for King George hat-trick

Kempton Park will host the traditional Boxing Day meeting as part of their annual Christmas Festival. As usual, the Ladbrokes King George VI Chase is once again the stand-out race. Some of the best-loved horses to grace a British racetrack have claimed King George success in the past, including the likes of Desert Orchid, Kauto Star and Best Mate.


Desert Orchid and Kauto Star are the only two horses to claim three successive King George wins, an achievement the can be matched this year by 2018 and 2019 winner, Clan Des Obeaux. The Paul Nicholls-trained chaser won by 21 lengths last year and looked to be in superb form once again when finishing second on his return behind Bristol De Mai in last month’s Betfair Chase.


According to the latest betting, Clan Des Obeaux’s nearest challenge should come once again from stablemate, Cyrname. Despite having to make up 21 lengths on last year’s performance, Cyrname is widely backed to go one better in 2020. With a rating of 183, he is easily the highest rated horse in the field and has is probably better prepared that Clan Des Obeaux ahead of their Kempton showdown.


Santini comes next in the betting but for many his lack of pace remains a concern. Nicky Henderson’s eight-year-old was unlucky not to win the Gold Cup earlier this year but the sharp three miles is not his preferred trip.


Lostintranslation finished behind Santini when taking third in the Gold Cup and was also behind Clan Des Obeaux at Haydock last month. He’s unlikely to overturn defeats to two major players but at 15/2 he could represent excellent each-way value.


If you’re looking for value at a bigger price then 20/1 shot, Waiting Patiently is one to consider. The lightly-raced nine-year-old has shown his best form at 2m4f and unseated his rider in this race in 2018. If he can stay three miles then he could be a big player. Having not been seen since last December, his long odds could prove hugely generous if he arrives at Kempton in anything like his best form.


Clan Des Obeaux - 2/1

Cyrname - 2/1

Santini - 11/2

Lostintranslation - 15/2

Real Steel - 14/1

Saint Calvados - 18/1

Waiting Patiently - 20/1

Frodon - 25/1

Black Op - 100/1
