Along with this leading pair, the likes of Minella Indo, Chantry House and Asterion Forlonge all have genuine chances, in what should be one of the most exciting King George;s we’vre had in a long time.
The Christmas Hurdle is a supporting act to the big race, but by no means an afterthought, with a small field of six runners expected to take on this 2m trip, as Nicky Henderson’s Epatante and Hughie Morrisson runner, Not So Sleepy lock horns once again, having finished inseparable in a deadheat for the **Fighting Fifth (2m 4f, good to soft) at Newcastle last month, with the latter, catching up in the closing stages.
