Older Comments about the 2012 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes (G1)...

Given the level of prestige that the King George carries among the top G1 races in the UK, it hasn't really drawn great fields over the past few renewals. But this year's field lining up for King George glory reads as a real who's-who among top middle distance turf horses in Europe and internationally. Last year's King George winner and recent G1 Coral-Eclipse winner, Nathaniel, is back to defend his King George crown. Also in the field are last year's G1 Arc De Triomphe 1st and 2nd, Danedream and Shareta. Last year's G1 BC Turf 1st and 2nd, St Nicholas Abbey and Sea Moon. Who've already won the G1 Coronation Cup and G2 Hardwicke Stakes between them this season. Last year's G1 English St. Leger 1st and 2nd, Masked Marvel and Brown Panther. Last year's G1 Prix Du Jockey Club and G2 Prix Niel winner, Reliable Man. Last year's G1 Melbourne Cup and G1 Hong Kong Vase winner, Dunaden. And just for good measure, throw in this year's G1 Japanese Derby winner, Deep Brillante. This promises to be one of the competitive renewals of the G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes in quite a few years.
