2015 King George Ante Post Betting Preview PT 3

He captured the Betfair Chase over Silviniaco Conti to secure a high stakes win on his second start of the season. He kicked things off at Wetherby when he got the better of Dynaste three weeks prior when sent off at an 11/4 margin.

He had a rather indifferent spate of form in the 2014/15 season when he just seemed to come up short in virtually every single race - generally beaten by a double digit margin in every single contest he lined up in. 

This year he really seems to have turned it around and has clearly forged a good partnership with Paddy Brennan. He took the Betfair Chase despite not being sent off as the favourite so it will be interesting to see if he can kick on and establish another strong gallop by pressing the pace up front. He worked that to great effect at Haydock in the Betfair Chase and you assume that we will probably see a similar approach here with him hanging just behind one of the longer odds contenders that we expect to go right to the front early. 

The odds then take a pretty significant jump to up about a 7/1 or 8/1 margin for the likes of Silviniaco Conti. The nine-year-old son of Dom Alco has been beaten both times he’s been out this year and he was sent off as the betting favourite in the aforementioned Betfair Chase at Haydock Park.

He was a general 5/4 with most bookmakers coming out of the gate and prior to that he was beaten in a Class 2 Handicap hurdle at Kempton in a race that you get the feeling was just a glorified exercise to get his season off to a better start. 

He was as long as 7/2 that day which shows that punters really didn’t buy this as a race he was sent out to actually win with Brother Todd pulling off the victory by a full four length margin.
