Saturday TV Trends

Saturday TV Trends: 26th December 2015

A massive day on Boxing Day with eight domestic horse racing fixtures, but the festive highlight as racing resumes after a three day break is the King George VI Meeting at Kempton Park.

The King George VI  Chase is the featured race of the day as punters will look to get their Xmas expenses paid for – a race in recent years we’ve seen horse racing greats like Kauto Star, Long Run, Best Mate, Kicking King, One Man and, more recently, Silviniaco Conti, landing the prize.

We take a look at each race on the card and highlight the main stats – hopefully this will help you whittle down the fields and point you in the direction of a few winners.
