Tizzard unworried over Cue staminaHeadlines
Cue Card

Jockey Joe Tizzard is confident Cue Card will get the trip as he steps up to three miles for the first time in the William Hill King George VI Chase at Kempton.

Second to the mighty Sprinter Sacre in the Arkle last spring, Colin Tizzard's charge won the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter on his seasonal reappearance and Joe Tizzard believes three miles should pose no problems.

"I gave him a school on Monday morning. It was the first time I'd sat on him since Exeter and he felt superb," he told At The Races.

"He's just ticking over to the race now. He's done all his work and seems in good nick. He's won on all sorts of ground, but he's going into an unknown trip.

"The more rain, the more stamina is going to come into use for the King George, but I'm confident he'll get the trip and he'll handle the ground."

Kempton clerk of the course Barney Clifford is confident next week's King George meeting will beat the elements and go ahead as scheduled.

Although Clifford is anticipating demanding conditions, he has no worries about the meeting going ahead at this stage.

"We are soft ground," Clifford told Racing UK.

"It has handled 23 millimetres in the last 24 hours exceptionally well. It will improve, but I don't think it will ever improve from being soft. Kempton is a free-draining track so we are in a good place to take this quantity of rain."
