This loveable grey horse is somewhat of a Haydock specialist, he just loves it at this course. He is 11 years of age now and not getting any younger, but for a horse who performs best around here he has to be in the mix with a case being made for him.
If you were to look at his form there are a few P’s that suggest he may not be in the best of nick but a chance is taken on seasonal reappearance to put those wrongs right and here is hoping he can run a decent race.
Jockey Daryl Jacob has been speaking in the media recently on the horses chances and he seems to be excited so that can only be a positive for Bristol De Mai.
Before pulling up when last seen in the Grade 1 Bowl Chase at Aintree, he ran a solid race at Haydock finishing second in the Grade 3 Grand National Trial Handicap Chase.
A slight drop back down in trip and a smaller field of just five runners may just suit the old boy more, therefore he has to be respected especially over this course and distance.
A player if he can stay the required 3m1f.
