completed a magnificent seasonal hat-trick, adding a sixth Grade 1 to his tally, needing to run right up to his best, responding most generously to strong pressure (his rider rightly received a lengthy ban for his excessive use of the whip, around 15 hits in all); in touch, travelled well, chased leader from twelfth, driven straight, keeping on when mistake last, found plenty to lead on line; in a race which placed the emphasis on stamina as much as it could under the conditions, Cue Card was just the stronger stayer than Vautour and there are no real concerns after his last 3 runs about his lasting the Gold Cup distance, clearly a leading candidate as he bids to claim the £1 million bonus for winning the Betfair Chase, this race and the Gold Cup.

upped markedly in trip, had clearly come on plenty for Ascot and proved better than ever on his second start out of novice company, just doing a fraction more than ideal in front and run out of it on the post, his tendency to jump left far less apparent than it had been the time before; pressed leader, tanked along, led tenth, ridden approaching last, not fluent there, driven and stayed on run-in, caught on line; his connections face a conundrum as to where he will be aimed in the spring, as he clearly has the ability to be a strong contender for the Cheltenham Gold Cup, though with a slight doubt about his stamina - in contrast to his owner's other main candidate Djakadam, who's inferior in form terms at present but proven at the trip - Vautour would likely take some beating in the Ryanair, but the lure of the Gold Cup may win out.

has always just come up short in the very best races and it was no different this time, ridden more patiently than usual, a good strategy in the circumstances and one that maximised his finishing position; held up, travelled well, effort after 4 out, kept on, left third 2 out, made no impression on first 2; he's likely to find something like the Ascot Chase his best option for further graded success this season.

had been supplemented for this after his win in the Hennessy and was competitive for a long way, but essentially he just wasn't up to the task in the end, running close to the form he showed at Newbury, a lesser test of stamina and a less attacking ride reasons for thinking he might yet do a little better, rather than excuses when none are needed; handy, went with zest, ridden after 4 out, one paced; the Cotswold Chase, and a possible clash with Many Clouds and Djakadam, could be a good next option for him.

was asked a stiff question in this grade, having missed a more realistic opportunity when ruled out of the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup at the last minute, and he never looked likely to get involved; held up, pushed along before twelfth, mistake there, hit fourteenth; he should still be of interest back in a more appropriate grade.

went for a circuit like the horse that had won the last 2 runnings of this race, but his frailties were all too apparent after halfway and it will be a masterful piece of training to get him competitive again, even at Aintree in the spring; led, jumped well, went with enthusiasm, headed tenth, weakened fourteenth, pulled up 3 out.

All 9 ran. Fences: 18.

Winning Owner: Mrs Jean R. Bishop

Time: 6m 2.9s Closing Sectional: (2.50f): 39.70s (95.2%)

An outstanding renewal in anticipation of the mid-season championship for staying chasers and it didn't disappoint, as stamina, jumping and resolve were tested to the full, the 3 market leaders all running at least as well as ever and producing a thrilling climax as they drew away from the also-rans; the fall of Don Cossack when rallying at the second-last threw up the tantalising question of just where he might have finished, just ahead of the winner when he went having been behind him 3 out, and likely to have won in our view, rated as finishing just ahead of the first 2, though so well did the winner himself rally that it would be foolish to be adamant; the pace was strong from the outset, the race run in a much quicker overall time than the earlier Kauto Star, though nearly all that advantage was gained on the first circuit, the leader Vautour even further ahead 3 out before tiring through overexertion, rather than lack of stamina; Cue Card produced one of the best winning performances in the race this century, bettered only by Kauto Star and Long Run, and along with Vautour and Don Cossack produced collectively the best trio of performances in one chase since the 2004 Tingle Creek, which featured Moscow Flyer, Azertyuiop and Well Chief; it seems almost perverse to talk of this superb race in terms of a Cheltenham Gold Cup trial, but it was surprising to find none of the principals at the head of the ante-post market, the level of form shown by all 3 superior to that so far achieved by the current market leaders Djakadam and Don Poli, even though the latter in particular has more to offer.

CUE CARD completed a magnificent seasonal hat-trick, adding a sixth Grade 1 to his tally, needing to run right up to his best, responding most generously to strong pressure (his rider rightly received a lengthy ban for his excessive use of the whip, around 15 hits in all); in touch, travelled well, chased leader from twelfth, driven straight, keeping on when mistake last, found plenty to lead on line; in a race which placed the emphasis on stamina as much as it could under the conditions, Cue Card was just the stronger stayer than Vautour and there are no real concerns after his last 3 runs about his lasting the Gold Cup distance, clearly a leading candidate as he bids to claim the £1 million bonus for winning the Betfair Chase, this race and the Gold Cup.
