Verdict

A stunning 40/1 winner in the bumper and he didn't even come from Ireland. Colin Tizzard's CUE CARD simply flattened a field in the manner of last year's monster Dunguib. Expect some fancy quotes about next season's Supreme Novices after this demolition job. Al Ferof led all the way and plugged on well for second but was dismantled by the winner. Frawley stayed on dourly while the hot favourite Shot From The Hip pulled too hard early on and his chance was gone while Day Of A Lifetime ran all over the course and will need to settle next time.
