Boxing Day TV Trends: Tuesday 26th Dec (Kempton, Aintree & Wetherby)

A huge day on Boxing Day (Tuesday, Dec 26th 2023), but the festive highlight, as racing resumes after a two-day break, is the King George VI Meeting at Kempton Park.

The King George VI Chase is the feature race of the day as punters will look to get their Christmas 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, Thistlecrack, Might Bite, landing the prize.

12 months ago, trainer Paul Nicholls won his 13th King George when Bravemansgame won the King George VI Chase and is back for more.

Plus, at Wetherby the ITV cameras are also heading there to take in the Grade 3 Rowland Meyrick Chase.

Here at GeeGeez, we take a look at each race on the Kempton card and highlight the main trends, plus the Rowland Meyrick Chase (Wetherby) – hopefully this will help you narrow down the fields and point you in the direction of a few festive winners.
