Highland Reel All The Rage For King George

King George VI Stakes

Outright Betting

Highland Reel is all the rage to give his master trainer Aidan O’Brien another Group One and another King George VI Stakes.

The son of Galileo, who is now 11/8 from 6/4, was very impressive winning the Prince of Wales’s Stakes at Royal Ascot last month.

The key to him is fast ground like it was twelve months ago when he was victorious in the King George.

Idaho was also a winner at the Royal meeting when he won the Hardwicke Stakes with Seamie Heffernan on board. He is the younger brother of Highland Reel and each-way punters are getting stuck into him forcing our traders to cut him into 6/1 from 8/1.

Sir Michael Stoute will have recent Eclipse winner Ulysses to turn to at 5/1, while John Gosden may throw dual Oaks heroine Enable into the mix at 6/1.
