Right on Cue
With Don Cossack sliding out of the race two out it, had been left to Cue Card to hunt down the long time leader Vautour. A reversal to the previous year where he had been shot down late on.
Vautour got in tight to the last and Cue Card decided to meet it about half way up before Paddy Brennan got every last ounce out of his charge to chin Vautour right on the line.
A cracker of a spectacle !!
Elsewhere on the card Lizzie Kelly had made history becoming the first female to win a Grade 1 race in The Kauto Star Novice Chse onm Two for Tea before Faugheen had simply done what he does best. No messing about, simply raw power and his rivals were no match as he scooted 8 lengths clear to take his second Christmas Hurdle.
