Cue Card is to skip a possible outing in the Peterborough Chase at Huntingdon later this month in favour of running in the William Hill King George VI Chase.

Colin Tizzard's six-year-old gelding produced one of the perfomances of the jumps season so far when sauntering 26 lengths clear in the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter in November and will now bid for the Boxing Day feature at Kempton.

Joe Tizzard, son of the Dorset handler and Cue Card's regular jockey, said on his blog for Wincanton racecourse: "Cue Card will head straight to the William Hill King George VI Chase at Kempton Park on Boxing Day.

"He's in fine condition and his racing form is looking stronger every day.

"Bobs Worth, who won Saturday's Hennessy Gold Cup, beat us last year at Newbury and had a 7lb weight advantage and I still feel we should have won that day."
