BOXING Day racing is almost upon us and the unquestioned highlight is the King George VI Chase at Kempton.

And this year's looks set to be a cracker, with former winners, up and coming chasers and a Cheltenham Gold Cup winner all in the mix.

Frodon and Bryony Frost will be back to defend the crown they won 12 months ago, with two-time winner Clan Des Obeaux also set to run.

Chantry House will fly the flag for the last season's novices, while Minella Indo – last season's Gold Cup winner – looks set to make the trip over from Ireland.

The King George is one of the several big races on Boxing Day, with Kempton also hosting a further two Grade 1s.

In Ireland, Leopardstown's Christmas festival also gets underway, with the Grade 1 Racing Post Novice Chase the big race on day one.
