Mattie Batchelor for CH4 Morning
Line Preview yesterday, took us to meet up with the Tizzards at their Home Farm in
Colin's Son JOE TIZZARD partnerCUE CARD gave us a brilliant display of jumping yesterday afternoon, to win this race in soft testing ground giving us a highly polished performance. The work that has gone on every day in the background over years to bring Cue Card to this peak, is massive, make no mistake about that. PLUS Cue Card looks like he is quite a small horse with the spring of a leopard, and a pounce that devourers the ground like it isn't there. Light as a feather. Joe's Dad, trainer Colin Tizzard mentioned to
CH4 Nick Luck after this race that there are only two people who ever ride Cue Card. JOE TIZZARD and CUE CARD are a highly tuned double act. In tune with each other to perform as this yesterday. Confident slick and spot on over these big fences, make no mistake the concentration involved to tackle these big chase fences all part of these jump races. Very different to Flat races and even Hurdle races are nothing in comparison to these Chases where one slight mistake on either part can mean disaster. JMC
CH4 MORNING LINE GUEST yesterday TOM SCUDAMORE gave DYNASTE 7 11-7 a great ride to finish 2nd to CUE CARD for David Pipe at 11-2. With SILVINIACO CONTE and NOEL FEHILY in touch all the way. taking third for trainer Paul Nicholls at 7-2
A hot, hot, hot race make no mistake about that.

" Defiant O'Leary hits back. Gigginstown chief insists no rules have been broken over non-runners and vows to keep making multiple declarations.
IN TODAY'S RACING POST
GIGGINSTOWN APPEAL TO BE HEARED ON MONDAY
MICHAEL O'LEARY is absolutely within his rights to fight for the rights of his racehorses in training. Taking racehorses entered to run, out of races due to going changes and false racecourse going reports. No trainer or owner wants to be left with a stable yard full of broken down racehorses unable to run anywhere due to injuries sustained racing on unsuitable ground surfaces.
The problem O'Leary faces is the bloodhorse illiteracy of Turf Club officials and the bloodhorse illiteracy of High Court Judges. Totally incompetent as to any and all true Equus Zone practices.
O'LEARY will not get a fair hearing from either of these parties. This is an evil and unacceptable situation for O'LEARY to be placed in by the people at both these top tables of power. Global horseracing at present is being run without any true Equus Rules Of Horseracing. Meaning that all horseracing is being run without any racehorses rights and needs taken into consideration at all.
How are British and Global jockeys expected to ride within True Equus Rules of Horseracing when there are none? What would happen at Wimbledon Tennis Tournament 2014 if there are to be no true British Global Tennis Rules?

JMC: Yes , but not in the wrong direction, by the wrong people as over the last 6 decades and at present.
"The comments were made by Lord Howard at the World annual conference in
JMC: Yes, absolutely. But why have the British political and horseracing governments failed to allow top Equus standard Rules in British horseracing? And why are there no True Global Equus Rules in place anywhere in the world this day in 2013?? Channel 4 The Morning Line Preview on Saturday, Nick Luck and Mick Fitzgerald took us to
"The decision last month of the International Equestrian Federation and International Federation of Horseracing Authorities to come together to create the International Horse Sports Confederation could, and hopefully will, accelerate the rate of progress.
JMC: First of all there is a massive backlog of BHA abusive malpractice that is in urgent need of correction and true understanding. Like three year old allegations against Dwyer and Mulrennan summoned back to
"The fact that protecting horse welfare and maintaining strong policy are included in the key priorities to which both bodies have signed up provide the basis for at least a degree of optimism. "
JMC: Political and Horseracing governments have caused such sickening devastation to so may other peoples lives to include the horses optimism is hardly the right word here.
