King George VI Chase: Kempton Park

Christmas racing news……Philip Hobbs 2012 King George VI Chase runner-up Captain Chris is not certain to run at Kempton regardless of how he fares in Thursday’s Peterborough Chase.

Currently a 16-1 chance, for the William Hill King George, Captain Chris is set to return to action in Huntingdon’s event this week.

The nine-year-old was withdrawn from his intended comeback in last month’s Amlin Chase at Ascot due to lameness.

“The Peterborough Chase is very much the plan,” said Hobbs. “We’re wrong at the weights with Riverside Theatre, but we have to go there.”

Asked about Kempton, the trainer said: “There are only two weeks between this and the King George so we will have to see how he comes out of it.”

The Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton over Christmas remains the next likely port of call for Sire De Grugy (8/1), following his victory in the BetVictor Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown on Saturday.

Trainer Gary Moore (pictured) fulfilled an ambition of sending out a first Grade One success in the two-mile feature, and to make the occasion even more memorable his stable star was ridden by his son, Jamie. “I hope to run him at Kempton,” said Moore. “I know we have take Sprinter Sacre on at some point and I’d rather it was there (on December 27).

A fantastic day yesterday with a 20/1 EW double posted. THEO’S WELL & ROLECARR both finished in the ‘money spots’ at advised prices of 20/1 & 16/1. That adds to last weeks named EW & WIN s

With flat racing today at Lingfield & Wolverhampton, we’ve got two selections lined up for this afternoon.

Lingfield 15.00……Tom Queally has a great shout on the consistent GREAT GABRIAL , he’s upped in class here but can make his mark at a best priced 15/2 with SkyBet.
Wolverhampton 17.10…….Jaladee will be a warm order for Roger Varian after landing the odds to win his maiden last time out. A short priced likely favourite at 9/4 with SkyBet we will look elsewhere for some value. Perivale makes her handicap debut and could figure EW around 9/2 with SkyBetHowever we opt for ONE SCOOP OR TWO who had a good campaign here last winter and has had a pipeopener on the AWT to strip fit. A best priced EW value at 7/1 with bet365.
Let’s look forward to another mega week…..Good luck!!!
