Kempton Winter Festival ft King George VI Chase Betting Tips – 26th & 27th December 2018

Late December each year marks just about the midway point of the jumps season. No time for a half time break though as Kempton Park serves up a spectacular feast of sporting action to keep the adrenaline pumping. Kicking off on Boxing Day this two-day festival never fails to keep that festive feeling rolling for just a little longer.

For many of course, this meeting is really all about one race. The mighty King George VI Chase is one of the few National Hunt contests of the season which draws even non-racing fans into this wonderful sport. Jam packed with excitement and drama, and with genuine racing legends such as Arkle, Desert Orchid, Kauto Star and more all featuring on the roll of honour, this staying chase marvel has a well deserved place towards the top of the racing tree.

It’s not all about the big one though. We have a further 11 races on offer over the course of the two days, including another four Graded contests, spearheaded by the excellent Christmas Hurdle, in addition to a clutch of handicap puzzles to solve. All in all a real Christmas Cracker!
