A superb renewal of the King George and with slight doubts about a few of these on their last run or the suitability of the track, Waiting Patiently is the one we want to be with. An unbeaten record of 6 from 6 over fences, he beat Politologue as a novice in pretty decent fashion and looked dynamite everything he stepped foot on the track last year, finishing with an impressive victory at Ascot. He’s taken to prove himself truly top class here.
We can’t let Clan Des Obeaux run loose at 16/1, so we’ll have a small cover bet on him. Much was made of the stiff Haydock fences last time and for us, this chap struggled with them more that the likes of Might Bite. He ran a might race there and looks over priced and is worth a play.
