Cue Card, Dynaste or Silviniaco Conti: who will win the 2013 King George?

It's the mid-way point of the season and some of the leading stables in Ireland and England have much to play for...

Cue Card must pass a medical before getting the green light but Colin Tizzard’s Ryanair Chase winner brings the best recent form into the race having won a Grade One 3m 1f Haydock Chase on his most recent start.

But David Pipe’s Dynaste and Paul Nicholls’ Silviniaco Conti weren’t that far behind and if the champ-in-waiting is under par these guys will test his mettle.

Nicholls knows a thing or seven about winning the race and also saddles Al Ferof who warmed up for this with an Ascot stroll last month. He’s untested over the three-mile trip which can also mean he’s unexposed and was treble these odds a couple of months ago.

Ruby Walsh doesn’t think the two that finished behind Cue Card that day can reverse the form and who are we to argue with Ruby? He’s a very good arguer and has — as our rather nifty inforgraphic shows — won the King George five times aboard record breaker Kauto Star.

Ruby’s had enough of bad coffee and early-morning flights so he’ll be at Leopardstown in Co Dublin on December 26, but as Alison Sheridan’s design shows – we’ve got you covered.
