It was a huge Saturday for Cotswold racehorse trainers today as nine races were won across the cards at Ascot, Haydock and Huntingdon winning a total of £252,772 in prize money!
Nigel Twiston-Davies kept up his incredible form winning the valuable Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock with Bristol De Mai by a monstrous 57 lengths over his nearest rival Cue Card under Daryl Jacob. This was the yard's second winner of the day after Count Meribel won the opener at Ascot.
Slad based Tom George also notched up a valuable double as 16/1 shot Sir Valentino won the Shawbrook Handicap Chase at Ascot after an earlier success with Clondaw Castle at Huntingdon.
There was also a double for Clapton on the Hill based Ben Pauling at Haydock and Ascot with Delire D'Estruval and Nestor Park both enjoying close victories.
Fergal O'Brien, who shares the Grange Hill Gallops with Nigel Twiston-Davies, continued his good form as Chase The Spud completed a neat round of jumping on heavy ground Betfair Handicap Chase at Haydock under Paddy Brennan.
There were further victories for Jonjo O'Neill and Kim Bailey at Huntingdon with Compadre and Silver Kayfe both edging victories under Killian Moore and Mike Hamill respectively.
