Captain Chris delighted trainer Philip Hobbs in his latest workout ahead of the William King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day.

The eight-year-old was a well beaten third behind Kauto Star in the Festive highlight 12 months ago and while he ran no sort of race on his next appearance at Cheltenham, he did sign off with a fair fourth in the Ryanair Chase at the Festival.

Back on a right-handed track, he made an impressive return to action in the Amlin 1965 Chase at Ascot and is a 12-1 shot with the sponsors to follow up at Kempton.

"He's in really good nick. He worked very well yesterday (Tuesday) and we've got a couple of weeks to go. I couldn't be more pleased with him," Hobbs told At The Races

"Obviously we're taking on all the very best at Kempton, but we're hoping that he'll have a good chance."
