Tizzards steal the showHeadlines
Theatre Guide makes it a double for the Tizzards

Theatre Guide benefited from a superb waiting ride to land the Gain Horse Feeds Novices' Chase from odds-on Hinterland on a red-letter day for the Tizzards at Exeter.

Colin Tizzard's former top bumper prospect (6-1) had a dozen lengths to find with Hinterland and Peckhamecho rounding the home turn, but was level with the former two fences out and clear at the last before going on to score by 11 lengths under the trainer's son Joe.

The duo had already won the big race when stable star Cue Card put in a scintillating round of jumping to take the Haldon Gold Cup.

Colin Tizzard said: "He's always been a nice young horse and still is. Joe said he's so accurate and has scope. He's a big boy. I thought Joe was doing a good schooling job down the back, but then the two in front stopped. I would think he'll be going to Cheltenham next (for the Paddy Power meeting)."

Paul Nicholls and Ruby Walsh, out of luck with Hinterland, had made the perfect start to the day as Atlantic Roller (11-8 favourite) landed thebishopjohn.co.uk Novices' Hurdle.

The Ditcheat trainer said: "This horse is a bit green, but he stays and jumps. All the novices seem to be running well and we'll look after him. He'll be jumping fences in 12 months' time."

Nicholls and Walsh wasted no time in adding to their laurels as they completed a double via the impressive Landscape (11-8 favourite) in the Nethway Hotel Torquay And Jay&Kay Coaches Kent Novices' Hurdle.

"I fancied him at Cheltenham, but he jumped too big and was losing time in the air. We've done plenty of schooling with him since then," Nicholls added.

Victor Dartnall added to his useful record at this course when Richard's Sundance won the Smith & Williamson Handicap Chase, holding Swincombe Rock by three-quarters of a length under Andrew Glassonbury.

Farmer Matt was a well-backed 11-4 winner of the Roaring 20s Christmas Parties Here Handicap Hurdle for Fergal O'Brien and Paddy Brennan. The trainer said: "Paddy rode him at Ffos Las and said he'd be all right. We've been very patient as he's had problems with his wind. He travelled and jumped well."
