The King George VI Chase is one of the biggest races on the National Hunt calendar and this year’s renewal looks set to be another Christmas cracker at Kempton.

Paul Nicholls is the leading trainer in the history of the contest and the Ditcheat handler is set to fire three darts at the contest as he bids for a record-extending 13th win.

NEW TO PADDY POWER NEWS?

Tornado Flyer continued the Irish domination of the Jumps scene with a shock 25/1 victory in the King George 12 months ago but Willie Mullins’ star will not return to defend his crown so Envoi Allen is set to fly the flag for Ireland.

You can run the rule over our King George VI Chase odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.

King George VI Chase 2022 betting

King George VI Chase odds are on paddypower.com and prices for the leading contenders can be seen on our snazzy widgets below.

Bravemansgame, a course-and-distance winner, is the favourite with Paddy Power for the King George VI Chase after defeating a number of potential rivals on seasonal reappearance in the Charlie Hall Chase.

Brown Advisory Novices’ Chase winner L’Homme Presse is next in the betting after a stunning top-weight carrying performance to land a premier handicap at Newcastle on his belated reappearance last month.

Paul Nicholls’ second string Hitman is also prominent in our market as he bids for a maiden victory at the top level and last month’s success at Haydock was his first success in more than 18 months.
