Native River Added To King George Betting

Native River will need to be supplemented for the King George VI on boxing day but that has not stopped punters backing him at 14/1 to win the big race. Hills currently have join 9/4 favourites in Lostintranslation & Cyrname, whilst last year’s victor Clan des Obeaux is the 9/2 third favourite.


“It looks like there is plenty of rain around in the next fortnight so Native River might well be supplemented for the Boxing Day showcase,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
