This is a top fixture from haydock and there are 5 declared for the 3m 1 1/2f trip. Of those, it is LOSTINTRANSLATION who is the market leader.

He will be looking to defend his title from last year in this fixture. He won that from a 5/4 SP last term (R M Power / C L Tizzard)

Lostintranslation the 11/8 FAV for the Betfair Chase

Last year’s winner of the Betfair Chase, LOSTINTRANSLATION is back for another crack.

He is the 11/8 favourite to double up in the fixture * (betting odds taken from Betfair at 23:42 on Friday, 20th November 2020).

He got the better of specialist BRISTOL DE MAI in this fixture 12 months ago. That was a big mark for the Colin Tizzard-trained Lostintranslation.

This is a big reappearance for him, but he looks as if he can handle this.

There was a major blow for him at King George last year, but he responded very well to take a third place finish at this year’s Cheltenham Gold Cup.

That effort at the Festival was his first after wind surgery.

Last year Lostintranslation was just in unstoppable jumping form in this top Grade 1 fixture. We expect him to enjoy himself on his return.



Clan Des Obeaux to launch a strong reappearance?

The impressive CLAN DES OBEAUX looks ready for a strong challenge in this one.

Looking back to last season he went superbly well on his reappearance run. So there is a history there of him coming back in fresh, which is what he is doing here.

Clean Des Obeaux is at 9/4 to pick up the victory in this one on Saturday* (betting odds taken from Betfair at 23:42 on Friday, 20th November 2020). He will be running for the first time having had wind surgery.

Paul Nicholls’ dual King George winner needs a big bounce-back performance in this star-studded field.

The last effort he had was at the Cheltenham Festival, which didn’t go well. He signed off in the spring with an eighth place only in the Gold Cup at the Festival.

He is going to be fascinating to watch on reappearance. Clan Des Obeaux is more likely than not, going to be very game for this one.

Nicholls, of course, has a tremendous track record in this particular fixture.

Can Bristol De Mai rediscover his Kempton touch?

BRISTOL DE MAI won this race in 2017 and 2018 but he was taken down a peg last year by LOSTINTRANSLATION.

But there is no denying that Bristol De Mai is a proven course and distance specialist.

He is down the market a little bit as a 5/2 quote to pick up the victory in this fixture* (betting odds taken from Betfair at 23:42 on Friday, 20th November 2020).

The last time that he was in action was also in the Cheltenham Gold Cup over that famous 3m 2f trip back in March.

But he was a distant ninth-place finisher in that one. That has left Bristol De Mai without a win in a couple of years now.

Has his prime time at major Grade 1’s passed him by now? He is back for his reappearance and he could struggle against the other two already mentioned, off of his mark.

It may be simply down to place claims for Bristol De Mai this year in a race he loves.

Keeper Hill with a tremendous amount to find

KEEPER HILL has taken a reappearance run for the season. That was in the Charlie Hall at Wetherby (Grade 2) last month.

That was a 3m trip and he claimed a fourth place finish in that one. To his credit he had been out at 50/1 for that trip.

But still, he was a massive 17l behind winner CYRNAME in the contest.

That is more than enough to suggest that he is going to find most of this field far too much for him to handle at Kempton on Saturday.

Keeper Hill did start to get himself back together in this sphere last season, but we don’t see a serious threat.

Bellshill to struggle?

Much the same story can be made of BELLSHILL in this contest. The former Irish Gold Cup winner will be making his debut for Sandy Thomson.

He signed off for last season when he was third in a Grade 3 effort at Fairyhouse over this distance in February.

There was really no big step forward in ability produced by Bellshill following his Irish Gold Cup win last year.

He is with a new yard for the first time here. That may well refresh hiim a bit, but not likely enough to get himself a victory.

Predictions & Tips for Betfair Chase Racing Odds

This is one of the top Grade 1 fixtures on the calendar and we can’t see past LOSTINTRANSLATION getting the victory for the second year running.

He continued his strong jumping form to collect a place finish at the Cheltenham Gold Cup and there is more to come from him we fell.

He is the justifiable 11/8 favourite for the win in this fixture* (betting odds taken from Betfair at 23:42 on Friday, 20th November 2020).

The obvious challengers are CLAN DES OBEAUX and we believe, to a lesser extent, BRISTOL DE MAI.

It is the former of those who is likely to push the favourite the hardest.

He is coming back from wind surgery and that poor run at the Cheltenham Cup will still be on the minds of supporters. But he is a lot better than that and will get close.
