A great performance! That’s what most racing fans thought of Bristol De Mai’s Betfair Chase romp. But just how good it was has really divided opinion.
Bristol De Mai’s RPR for the Betfair Chase was 185 which is 7lb higher than any of the last 10 winners and 1lb higher than any figure achieved by Denman.
A difficult race to assess but that can’t be right,can it?@RacingPost @FinalFurlongPod @kevinblake2011

Not sure how to assess Bristol De Mai overall…
Brilliant performance no doubt but pretty rancid G1 all in all and really, the fact he’s won by 50-odd lengths implies this.
And his complete adoration for Haydock is a worry looking ahead too

BRISTOL DE MAI has been given a rating of 185 😂
Bare in mind…Douvan 178, Thistlecrack and Sizing John 174
Surely this is a joke?! 👀🐴
