Coach Nigel Twiston-Davies says Bristol De Mai will deserve to have a race named after him if he can emulate the great Kauto Star and win Saturday’s Betfair Chase at Haydock for the fourth time.

The 10-year-old gray gelding faces stiff opposition from A Plus Tard, last season’s Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up coached by Henry of Bromhead, and Native River, the 2018 Gold Cup winner coached by Colin Tizzard.

But Bristol De Mai, which is owned by Simon Munir and Isaac Souede, brings an outstanding career and track record to the £ 200,000 steeplechase. The only time he didn’t win the race was when he finished second after Lostintranslation in 2019.

That’s the only time that Daryl Jacob’s Mount has been defeated in six races at Merseyside Racecourse.

Twiston-Davies said: ‘It would be great to match Kauto Star. He would be remembered forever and they could even name a breed after him. We are prepared and ready to go. The year he was second we really had a limp problem and we didn’t take him there 100%.

There are two long straights and easy corners at Haydock, so you can get out there and do your thing. A flat track where he can really dominate things tends to suit him. ‘

Twiston-Davies can enter the race confident that his stable is in tip-top shape. His five winners over the weekend included the victory of promising rookie hurdler I Like To Move It at Cheltenham.

The momentum was sustained yesterday at Leicester, where Twiston-Davies and his jockey son Sam had success with Robinshill and Monarchofthegrange.

A Plus Tard, who will attempt to become the first Betfair Chase winner coached by Ireland, is the 13-8 favorite with Bristol de Mai 3-1.
