Henry De Bromhead strives to continue dominating the British National Hunt races on Saturday as A Plus Tard bets on adding Betfair Chase to their coach’s powerful career this year.

Not content to sweep the board at the Cheltenham Festival with victories in Champion Hurdle, Champion Chase and Gold Cup, the Irish coach then mounted a historic double at the Grand National courtesy of the Minella Times and Balko Des Flos.

Gold Cup runner-up A Plus Tard looks like a perfect candidate for Britain’s classiest chase since March and it’s understandable why bookmakers are eager to keep the gelding in play.

However, this is very much the beginning of the road for A Plus Tard, who has finished second in all three of their season debuts, and it might be worth remembering that Gold Cup winner and stablemate Minella Indo was defeated in her comeback at Down Royal recently.

With that in mind, it might be worth going up against the ante-post favorite with trail specialist BRISTOL DE MAI (Haydock, 3.0) for whom today’s feature is the primary target rather than a springboard.

Galloping Gray is bidding to join the greats with a fourth win at Betfair Chase this afternoon, a feat managed by the imperious Kauto Star.

Defeated just once in five starts at Haydock, a loss in this race two years ago, Bristol De Mai also boasts an excellent fresh record, gains after breaks of 212, 226 and 253 days.

Some have questioned whether the drying field at Haydock will allow him to operate at full capacity, but coach Nigel Twiston-Davies believes that the track, more than the ground, is essential to the luck of his 10-year-old son.

This year’s revamp is blessed with depth and not low quality, with Next Destination targeting Haydock specifically since he returned to training in the summer.

Paul Nicholls made this career his own for several years courtesy of Kauto Star and Silviniaco Conti and his talented, yet frail, nine-year-old will not lack in physical form, having impressed at a recent racetrack gallop.

Connections add cheeks for the first time, which seems like a smart move for a horse that can run lazily.

n Dan Skelton celebrated his 1,000th victory as a coach yesterday when Faivoir triumphed in the Windsor Horse Rangers Novices Limited Handicap Hunt at Ascot.

On the other hand, there was another major career success for eight-year-old Lord Glitters, who came from last to first with Jason Watson to lift the £ 500,000 Bahrain International Trophy for coach David O’Meara.
