The glittering career of hugely popular chasers Bristol De Mai after his run at Haydock on Saturday was about time.

Owned by Simon Munir and Isaac Souede, the Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained gray has had six wins at his beloved Merseyside venue, including a hat-trick of wins at the Betfair Chase between 2017 and 2020.

Bristol De Mai also won the 2016 Altcar Novices’ Chase, the 2017 Peter Marsh Chase and last year’s Grand National Trial at Haydock but ended well beaten as he bid for back-to-back wins in the latter competition over the weekend.

Connections now thinks it’s time to give him an honorable retirement. Munir wrote on Twitter: “Team Double Green announce the retirement of Bristol De Mai.

“It was a privilege to own him. Bristol was a legend and retires 100 per cent healthy and happy. Our thanks to Nigel, Sparky (Richard Bevis), Daryl (Jacob) and everyone at Grange Farm.

“It was a wonderful journey that he took us all on!”

It has been nine years since Bristol De Mai was bought by Guillaume Macaire’s shipyard in France and he made an immediate impression by giving Munir and Souede their first Grade 1 success in the 2014 Juvenile Hurdle Final at Chepstow.

He has won 12 times in total, with his extensive racing streak also including the 2016 Scilly Isles Novices’ Chase at Sandown and the 2017 Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby.

The 12-year-old has amassed over £900,000 in prize money and while his owners are enjoying a superb season with Blue Lord and El Fabiolo both winning Grade Ones and heading to next month’s Cheltenham Festival as the leading contenders, Bristol De Mai will undoubtedly have done so always hold a special place in their hearts.
