Bristol De Mai leads Cotswold Chase betting

The Last Samurai is 9/2 second-favourite

Bristol De Mai is in pole position to win Saturday’s Cotswold Chase, according to Coral’s traders.

After a disappointing showing in the King George, the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained horse is 11/10 to win at Cheltenham.

The Last Samuri is a way back in second at 9/2. Definitly Red is third at 6/1.

In the Cleeve Hurdle, it’s Finian’s Oscar out in front at 3/1 on his return to hurdles.

“On ground that should suit, Bristol De Mai is a warm order to return to winning ways this weekend, while Finian’s Oscar also heads the betting for his Cheltenham target as he returns to hurdling after his less than convincing chasing efforts,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
