King George Betting Odds
All eyes will be on Kauto Star when Kempton hosts the King George VI Chase on Boxing Day, and the Paul Nicholls-trained star will be going for his fifth King George win.
Having equalled Desert Orchid’s record of four King George wins, Kauto Star is currently the market leader in the ante post King George betting market, and Kauto Star has King George odds of 10/11 to win.
Last year’s Gold Cup winner Imperial Commander was due to renew his rivalry with Kauto Star, but a cut to the horses near fore has ruled out Imperial Commander running until the 2011 Cheltenham Gold Cup.
That leaves Kauto Star odds-on in the King George race odds to win an unprecedented fifth consecutive King George.
But the ante post King George betting odds sees plenty of other horses willing to take on Kauto Star at Kempton and Long Run is second in the King George betting market at 5/1.
Forpadydeplasterer 8/1, Sizing Europe 10/1 and Riverside Theatre 10/1 are the three next best in the King George betting, and at those odds offer punters the chance to find plenty of value.

Run over three miles and with 18 fences to jump, the King George is a race for quick and fit chasers, and Albertas run, who won the Festival Trophy Steeple Chase at the 2010 Cheltenham Festival can certainly claim to having these qualities.
At 20/1 in the King George betting racing odds, Albertas Run is a big price and the Jonjo O’Neill Cheltenham Festival winner could run a big race.
Albertas Run is also likely to be the mount of champion jockey AP McCoy which would mean the horse would be likely to shorten in the betting as the King George race gets closer.
A £10 stake on Albertas Run winning the King George would return £210. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
