Kempton Boxing Day Preview Betting Preview PT 2- By A.J. Ryder on December 22, 2016 01:48 GMT
This time out you'll find the beting favourite Frodon trading at a 7/2 margin and the biggest longshot on the board being a 12/1 price tag on Chruchtown Champ in a ten horse field. This one looks to be a really interesting battle for those looking to get some each-way value as half the field would turn a profit for anybody getting them home in third place.
Frodon will be making his fourth start of the season here and has won twice, with the losing effort coming in the BetVictor Gold Cup Handicap Chase where he was only able to muster up a tame tenth place. He came roaring back just under a month later to tople a talented group over the same course and distance as the previous race when he captured the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup Handicap Chase when sent off at a hefty 14/1 price tag.
Minella Daddy could be one to keep your eye on here in the each-way markets since he hasn't finished outside of the top two in any of his past five races with a very solid second place effort coming just a week ago when he came second in the Lavazza Jolie Silver Cup Handicap Chase, which was a listed contest run at Ascot.
Despite being the 9/2 favourite he still ran a very credible second.
In the 2:40 at Kempton we have one of the most interesting races of the entire year unfolding with just a six horse field. The Christmas Hurdle is a Grade 1 contest going 2m and this one has been turned upside down after Rich Ricci announced that Vroum Vroum Mag would go here instead of the King George. There is every chance that his one turns into a straight up dog fight with Yanworth still maintaining the favourites position with a 2/1 price tag while Vroum Vroum Mag can be backed at a best price of about 9/4.
The New One has the roll as the key spoiler here and you can back him at a 7/2 listing and he has every chance to make an impression if there is an error from any of the two leading fancies here. ChTibello can be backed at 8/1 while My Tent Or Yours is always one to keep your eye on an can be backed at 11/1.
