Nigel Twiston-Davies relishing in role of party pooper ahead of Boxing Day bonanza in King George

Category : Betting , Horse Racing

NIGEL TWISTON-DAVIES is loving the role of underdog as he prepares Bristol De Mai for the 32Red King George.
Despite handing out a beating to four of today’s Kempton rivals when landing his second Betfair Chase at Haydock last month his stable star is still only 6-1 joint-fourth favourite with William Hill for Kempton’s annual Christmas cracker.

That suits his trainer just fine.
Twiston-Davies said: “I’m much more at ease that way – I love it. When we won the Gold Cup with Imperial Commander no one fancied us, when we won the Betfair Chase no one fancied us and no one fancies us this time. It’s great.”
Last year Bristol De Mai trailed in a well-beaten sixth in the King George when his usually sound jumping let him down. He was subsequently found to be suffering from stomach ulcers and Twiston-Davies revealed his preparation has been much smoother this time.
He said: “He’s had a very clean run this season – he’s been scoped for ulcers, scoped for everything – all’s fine. He seems superb – in really good nick.

“It’s another bonus he’s only had one race this season and I think that’s a huge bonus. He’s a year older and we’re hoping he’ll take his races better.
“He’s a very easy horse to get fit so he was probably fitter than most of them at Haydock. That might put the others back in the race again.
“Hopefully we’ve got enough to beat them all.”
Paul Nicholls is going for an astonishing tenth win in the £250,000 Grade 1 contest. Five of his nine victories were down to peerless Kauto Star and he can see the similarities between the dual Gold Cup hero and his main hope Politologue.
Nicholls said: “He’s not unlike Kauto Star in that he’s quite versatile, he jumps well and he’s won over 2m and 2m4f.
“It’s always going to be open to question whether he gets 3m as he not run over it yet but everything suggests that he’ll get it. He’s bred to stay – I don’t see it being a problem.
“He likes going right-handed and he likes flat tracks – he’s got a lot in his favour.
“I wouldn’t rule out Clan Des Obeaux, either. He’s a young horse who could improve but I wouldn’t mind seeing a bit more rain for him.

“I’d love to win it again. To win it ten times would be awesome.
“It’ll be a tough race to win as it always is but I’ve got two live chances and one of those is a very live chance.”
Double Shuffle is one of the outsiders but long odds didn’t stop him chasing home Might Bite when an unconsidered 50-1 shot 12 months ago.
He warmed up for a second crack at the King George when runner-up behind Definitly Red at Aintree.
Trainer Tom George said: “He’s as good as I could ever have him – probably better than last year.
“He’s a more mature, grown-up horse.
“The ground was too soft for him at Aintree a couple of weeks ago but it was a nice day out for him. It’s just put him right.
“He loves Kempton – that’s the whole key to him.”

The Cotswolds trainer is also gunning for the Grade 1 Kauto Star Novices’ Chase with The Worlds End less than two weeks after an impressive Cheltenham success.
He takes on a quality field including Santini, Bags Groove, Topofthegame and La Bague Au Roi.
George revealed: “Having said I wouldn’t entertain it I’ve had a bit of a rethink.
“He’s come out of Cheltenham unbelievably well and there isn’t really another race for him until the Reynoldstown at Ascot in February when we could be up to our knees in mud.
“He just needs a bit more practice.”
