Silviniaco Conti cut down the trailblaz-
ing Cue Card to win the William Hill King
George VI Chase at Kempton.
The eventual runner threatened to run
and jump his rivals ragged, just as he had
done in the Betfair Chase at Haydock, and
only the eventual winner was close enough
to challenge turning for home.
Soaring over the second last it still seemed
as though Cue Card (10/3 jf) had his measure
but the petrol tank began to read empty
between the last two, and Noel Fehily gal-
vanised Silviniaco Conti.
The 7/2 chance was in front approaching
the final fence and powered to the line to
score by three-and-a-half lengths. It was
11 lengths back to Al Ferof (5/1) in third.
Fehily said: "I was slow over three out
and I thought Joe (Tizzard) had got away
from me, but this horse is as tough as nails
and he s a very good horse.
"This is a different track (to Haydock)
and I knew my horse would be fitter today.
Paul (Nicholls) has done a great job---he told
me all week he d improved from Haydock
(when third to Cue Card in the Betfair Chase)
and he has. It was brilliant.
"I ve not ridden a Gold Cup winner, but
I hope he s a Gold Cup horse. This is unbe-
Nicholls said: "That s brilliant. I knew if
I had him at his best at Haydock he wouldn t
win today. Sometimes you win these races
with a horse like him, that if you d have got
to the bottom of him at Haydock he
wouldn t have won today.
"It was heavy that day, the run brought
him on enormously and I knew he d stay.
I said to Noel to make plenty of use of him.
Conti crowned Kempton King
"Kempton is not an ideal track for him a he jumps
a bit out to the left, but he stays forever. All he does
is stay, as you saw today. Better ground and a bit
further will suit him well.
"Today was his target---last year the targets were
the Charlie Hall and the Betfair. This year was a bit
different, to come here and then go for the Gold Cup.
"You have to be a true stayer to win round here
and though Cue Card won round Haydock it was
different ground. He had a soft lead and I didn t
want that to happen today.
"It s great to win this race with something different
(previous wins were five with Kauto Star and two
with See More Business). I thought we had a great
chance in last season s Gold Cup, but it didn t hap-
The winner s stablemate Al Ferof was well beaten
in third and Nicholls said of him: "I was worried
about soft ground for him. He might be more a
Ryanair horse than a Gold Cup horse this year, but
I ll talk to John Hales (owner)."
My Tent Or Yours narrowly denied The New One
in a thrilling renewal of the williamhill.com Christmas
Hurdle at Kempton on Boxing Day.
Nicky Henderson s brilliant six-year-old travelled
smoothly under AP McCoy as The New One tracked
the pace set by Duke Of Navan in the early stages.
As Sam Twiston-Davies cruised into the lead on
The New One rounding the home turn, McCoy moved
through in his slipstream as the race developed into
the anticipated match.
It all came down to who would jump the last better
as they went hammer and tong stride by stride, and
My Tent Or Yours came out on top in that respect,
The New One clambering over and that halted his
Still, Twiston-Davies regathered his mount for one
last surge but My Tent Or Yours found plenty for pres-
sure and he was half a length in front at the line.
The pair were 28 lengths clear of third home Same-
McCoy said: "It was very pleasing. He pulled hard
off a steady enough gallop on heavy ground.
"He had every chance to fold up because he was so
keen, but he really toughed it out.
"When I really needed one at the last, he delivered.
He s improved since Newcastle (winning Fighting Fifth
Hurdle) and it was a much better performance. I was
very impressed with the horse, he has a great will to
"He couldn t go for the Champion Hurdle if he
hadn t beaten The New One round here, but it was
a gruelling enough test because he pulled so hard on
"He has definitely improved from Newcastle, but
he needs to step up a little again and hopefully he can."
Henderson said: "I was pleased with his performance
and most of all because AP (McCoy) was pleased with
him and he said he d come on a lot from Newcastle.
"They weren t going much of a gallop and he couldn t
let him jump. He didn t do the slick Tent today because
he daren t fire him at a hurdle as he was just getting
"You can t go a good pace in this ground or else you
won t get home, but I was impressed with the way
the first two came away like they did.
"One would be inclined to run him again before
Cheltenham. I think he d go there horribly fresh if he
didn t. When he is fresh, he is keen.
"I think those were the best two in England, but I
think the dangers lie in Ireland. There s Hurricane Fly
and Our Conor, who I m very afraid of. He (McCoy)
was a bit sceptical after Newcastle, but said he was
