The Desert Orchid Chase betting will be here when available...
The Desert Orchid Chase is a grade two race held at Kempton Park each December run over a distance of two miles. The race is of course named after the great Desert Orchid who made his name at Kempton winning four King George Chase's and this is a fitting tribute to one of the best race horses of all time. As well as being a big race in its own right, the Desert Orchid Chase also acts as a key trial race for the Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
In recent years we have seen Sprinter Sacre, Finians Rainbow and Altiory win the Desert Orchid at Kempton before going onto win the Champion Chase at the Festival. That highlights the quality of race that it has become and we are expecting another strong field this year.
