Trains: 'Winged Crusader' 'Deputy Commander' 'Imperial Nemesis' 'Imperial Acolyte'


Nigel Twiston-Davies took out a full time training licence in 1989, having spent several years as a permit holder. Recording his first win in December 1989 he has since gone on to saddle more than 1200 winners. He is the only current trainer to have won the Grand National more than once, saddling Earth Summit to victory in 1998 and Bindaree four years later. His 13 successes at the Cheltenham Festival include three victories on the final day of the 2010 festival, with our very own Imperial Commander winning the Totesport Cheltenham Gold Cup, Baby Run capturing the Christie's Foxhunter Chase under 17 year old son Sam and Pigeon Island taking the Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Challenge Cup Handicap Chase.
