Horse Racing – Bristol De Mai among the best

Trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies believes Bristol De Mai's form this season has seen him become as good as anything that has ever passed through his yard. Last month's 57-length romp in the Betfair Chase at Haydock saw Bristol De Mai earn himself a rating in the mid 180's and he heads for Kempton on Boxing Day looking to supplement his success in the King George VI Chase. There are plenty willing to quibble with the form from his Haydock success, given the heavy ground and the fact his rivals finished so tired behind him, but Twiston-Davies is confident that Bristol De Mai will be equally at home when he meets better ground, as seems likely at Kempton. "In terms of ability he's now right up there with Imperial Commander among the best I've ever trained," Twiston-Davies said. "We aren't doing anything different this season, but he's going over further now and is showing just how good he is." Bristol De Mai is 5/1 with bet365 to win the King George at Kempton.
