Is Thistlecrack Set To Rule On King George Day?

Cue Card just retains favouritism for the King George at 6/5 but Thistlecrack is breathing down his neck and is 5/4 to win the big race on the 26th. Hills predict that come the race Thistlecrack will have overtaken Cue Card as the favourite.


“Clearly there is a decent amount of historical cash in the book for Cue Card, which means that he retains favouritism but we don’t think that will last,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
