Frodon and Bryony Frost will attempt to defend their King George VI Chase crown at Kempton on Boxing Day.

The pair stole the headlines from Clan Des Obeaux in last year’s renewal and the magic was there for all to see as they combined to win the Down Royal Champion Chase from Cheltenham Gold Cup hero Minella Indo on seasonal reappearance in October.

WELCOME TO PADDY POWER NEWS!

Frodon is set to resume rivalries with Clan Des Obeaux and Minella Indo in a mouthwatering King George VI Chase renewal, while emerging star Chantry House and the back-in-form Lostintranslation add extra spice to the mix.

King George VI Chase 2021 Betting

Clan Des Obeaux – a back-to-back winner in 2018 and 2019 – is the marginal favourite with Paddy Power after finishing last season with a flourish by scoring in the Betway Bowl and Punchestown Gold Cup.

Minella Indo heads to Kempton off the back of placing third on seasonal reappearance in the Down Royal Champion Chase, although Henry de Bromhead’s charge is, arguably, the one to beat after last season’s impressive victory in the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Frodon is behind the market leaders despite cruising to victory in last season’s renewal and kicking off the current campaign with a crushing win in Ireland.

Nicky Henderson’s emerging Chantry House is also proving popular with punters as last season’s Marsh Novices’ Chase winner makes his second start out of novice company.
