Winter Million Chase: Bristol De Mai trainer Nigel Twiston-Davies tempted by new Lingfield feature | Racing News

Nigel Twiston-Davies has identified the inaugural Winter Million Chase at Lingfield as a potential target for Bristol De Mai.

The popular gray was cheered up when he aimed for a third win in last month’s Betfair Chase at Haydock, with links putting his disappointing effort on unusually dry ground.

Twiston-Davies reports that his staunch supporter is no worse off and plans to perform it again after the end of the year, either in Lingfield’s £ 150,000 film on 23 January or at Cotswold Chase in Cheltenham the following weekend.

“It’s 100%,” Naunton’s host said.

“There’s a new race in Linguaglossa, a precious two-six (two miles and six stadiums) race. We could easily watch it and there’s the Cotswold Chase, that sort of thing.

“He’s kind-hearted and now the rain has come, which obviously was too late for Haydock.

“I always say he doesn’t really like heavy ground, but he handles it better than anyone else.”
