ALTIOR as many will know holds the record for the most consecutive amount of wins at 19 races over hurdles and fences and he has never been beaten by even one rival which makes him the stand alone favourite for the King George.
Henderson's stable star has ran over 2 miles and slightly further in his career staying very consistent and not being able to be passed by anyone.
However, this season it looks as if he will be tackling a new demographic and stepping up in trip to battle it out over 3 miles and maybe further.
He is one the sports greatest athletes to ever live but if he was to ever go and win the King George and then onto Potentially the Gold Cup he would be immortal in the eyes of jumps racing fans.
It looks like he will head to Ascot in the Christy 1965 Chase and if handling that well enough will bid for the King George which could be one of the most exciting spectacles of the season.
Currently he leads the market at 11/4 but this could all change depending on his seasonal debut and how he handles the huge step up in trip.
