Cue Card: Gold Cup hopeful

Colin Tizzard admits he is leaning towards the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup as the preferred Festival target for Cue Card.

The Betfair Chase winner and King George VI Chase runner-up is only likely to switch to the Ryanair Chase, which he won last March, if the ground came up heavy.

"He's fine and he's just starting to do some faster work now," said the Dorset trainer.

"He won't race again until Cheltenham so we're just starting to get him going again.

"He'll be left in both. We are definitely siding with the Gold Cup, but if it came up heavy then we could swing back the other way.

"All I have to do from now on is a tightrope. I've got to have him fit and sound and get him to the Festival."
