2015 Feltham Chase
Wed, Dec 23rd, 2015

Long RunThe Feltham Chase ( now the Kauto Star Chase) and the Christmas Hurdle are the the main supporting races to the King George VI Chase on the Kempton Boxing Day racecard. The Feltham Chase is a Grade 1 novice event run over the same 3 mile course as the King George itself.

As the Feltham attracts the top novice staying chasers it might be expected that the winners would also be types to go on and win the RSA Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. In fact the opposite has been true. Annacotty in 2014 became the 20th winner of the Feltham Chase at Kempton not to follow up in the RSA Chase. Six beaten horses reversed the places at Cheltenham, Bobs Worth becoming the latest to show that Cheltenham offers a very different challenge to Kempton. Coneygree 's achievement in 2015 in doubling up in the Feltham and the Gold Cup is therefore verging on bizarre but it is also noted that Long Run did follow up a 2009 Feltham win with victory in the 2010 King George ( run in Jan 2011) and the 2011 Cheltenham Gold Cup.
