Cue Card 5-1 For King George

Cue Card is 5-1 from 16-1 for the William Hill King George VI Chase with the sponsor, while Silviniaco Conti is out to 10-1 from 6-1, after Colin Tizzard’s star won the Betfair Chase in impressive fashion. 

“Cue Card has thrown himself in to contention for the King George, while Silviniaco Conti’s crown is slipping,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “It will take a far better effort from the reigning champ to retain his Boxing Day title.”

Meanwhile, Cue Card is 14-1 from 33-1 for the Cheltenham Gold Cup. 

Cue Card is also 33-1 with William Hill to win the Chase Triple Crown (from 100-1).
