KICKING KING NOW FAVOURITE FOR KING GEORGE AFTER PUNCHESTOWN WIN


Coral has slashed Kicking King to 4-1 (from 12-1) for the King George after Tom Taaffe's charge ran out a convincing winner of the John Durkan Memorial Chase at Punchestown this afternoon.


“With doubts over the participation of Moscow Flyer and Azertyuiop at Kempton, if Kicking King does turn up on Boxing Day, he could well be the one to beat,” reckoned Coral's David Stevens.


Coral has eased Beef Or Salmon to 11-1 (from 8-1) for the totesport Gold Cup following his poor performance in the Grade One contest, while Kicking King is quoted at 20-1 for jumping's Blue Riband.


Elsewhere, Saturday's Haydock winner Chives has been well backed with the sponsors for the Coral Welsh National and is cut to 9-1 (from 12-1) for theChepstow marathon, for which Rehearsal Chase winner One Knight is the 6-1market leader.
