NIGEL TWISTON-DAVIES is hoping Bristol De Mai can bounce again to type within the BetBright Trial Cotswold Chase.

Twiston-Davies has additionally responded to recommendations that his gray is probably not as efficient at Cheltenham as he gears up for one more crack on the Gold Cup.

His disappointing run within the King George at Christmas was defined away by abdomen ulcers being discovered.

“All has been good with him of late,” stated Twiston-Davies. “The ulcers have not held him up in any respect, you give them the therapy and all of it helps, so we must be all proper.

“I’ve heard him being described as a flat-track bully and he can only win at places like Wetherby and Haydock, but that’s not true.

“Look at his Cheltenham form, he nearly won a JLT and he ran well in the Gold Cup last year. I’m certainly not worried about going back there.”

The Last Samuri was runner-up in the 2016 Grand National and with Aintree on the agenda again, Kim Bailey is keen to not have to run him in another handicap carrying top weight.

“What do you do with him? He deserves to run in a Grade 1 as the poor horse always has top weights in handicaps. He’ll love the ground at Cheltenham,” said Bailey.

Brian Ellison has missed the Sky Bet Chase closer to home to run Definitly Red.

“We need to find out if he’s a Gold Cup horse. The last few times he’s been there he hasn’t run well, but if he runs well we can go for the Gold Cup and if he doesn’t we’ll wait for Aintree,” said Ellison.

“I just hope the ground isn’t tacky. Aintree was heavy, which was fine, but at Wetherby (Charlie Hall) it was holding and he doesn’t like that.”

Tom George runs Singlefarmpayment  and is looking to change tactics at a track he loves.

He said: “Singlefarmpayment loves Cheltenham.  The idea is to be more positive, not hold him up, and use his jumping because riding him out the back is not working at the moment.

“I think he’ll rise to the occasion as he likes the track so much.”

Fergal O’Brien’s Perfect Candidate is another who loves the course.

His trainer said: “I was very disappointed with his run last time at Sandown. He never really seemed to be travelling that day and didn’t jump as well as we know he can.

“He just didn’t seem to act on the track at Sandown on that day for some reason, but we’ll draw a line through that.”
