Lostintranslation cut for Cheltenham Gold Cup after winning Betfair Chase


Share this article


Lostintranslation is the new favourite for the Cheltenham Gold Cup after winning the Betfair Chase at Haydock under the ride of Robbie Power.

Colin Tizzard's charge pulled clear in a battle to overcome defending champion Bristol De Mai by one-and-a-half lengths at the finish line.

Nigel Twiston Davies' grey had been bidding to win the Grade One for the third successive year.

Frodon was a further 24 lengths behind Bristol De Mai with Ballyoptic in fourth.

It's a fourth win for Tizzard in the opening Grade One of the British National Hunt season and first since Cue Card's success in 2016.

"I got there way too soon after he travelled so well into the race. Bristol De Mai is a very good horse round here so that was a brilliant performance to beat him," Power told Racing TV.

"We're dreaming of the Gold Cup now. He was a very good novice last season but didn't know how he'd fare in the big boys' league. He's proven how good he is, roll on the King George!"
