Ascot: Amlin 1965 Chase Trends
Wed, Nov 13th, 2013

The Amlin Chase at Ascot is a relatively new event having been introduced in 2006. The roll of honour includes multiple Cheltenham Festival and Grade 1 winners Albertas Run and Masterminded. It has Grade 2 status and is run over 2 miles 3 furlongs.

The 2012 Amlin 1965 Chase went to Philip Hobb's Captain Chris with the Champion Chaser Finian's Rainbow back in fourth. The market reacted by marking both horses at 12/1 for the King George VI Chase on Boxing Day. Long Run remains 9/2 favourite for the King George after finishing runner up in the 2012 Betfair Chase.
