Cue Card now odds-on for King George glory
Cue Card is 4-5 (from 11-8) favourite with Coral for the King George VI Chase, after the 9-2 third favourite Coneygree was ruled out of the Boxing day highlight today. His stablemate Thistlecrack is 5-2 second favourite, ahead of Valseur Lido at 8-1.
“Coneygree’s absence from the King George removes a major obstacle from Cue Card’s path, and as a result he is now odds-on favourite to repeat last year’s win, although his odds would lengthen if his stablemate Thistlecrack was lined up against him,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
Elsewhere, Death Duty is 6-1 favourite (from 16-1) with Coral for the Neptune Novices’ Hurdle, and 4-1 (from 6-1) market leader for the Albert Bartlett following his impressive victory at Navan this afternoon.
