Cue Card bounces back in Bowl


Cue Card bounced back from his fall at Cheltenham to claim the Betfred Bowl Chase on the opening day of the Aintree Grand National meeting.

Colin Tizzard's charge fell three from home in the Cheltenham Gold Cup but he made amends for that spill as he ran out a comfortable winner of the Grade 1 feature at Aintree.

Cheltenham second and third Djakadam and Don Poli race prominently and were joined by Cue Card as the business end of the race approached, with the trio shaking off the challenge of Dynaste.

On the turn into the straight it any one of the three could have taken it but Djakadam weakended out of contention before Cue Card took it up with a superb jump at the third last.

Within a matter of strides Paddy Brennan had opened up a lead on Don Poli and two clear jumps saw him gallop to a nine length success over the Irish raider.

"Just relief. We changed the bit on him today and it helped. He is a horse of a lifetime and is unbelievable. He was not at his best today and he still did that," Brennan said.

"He was just lacklustre at times, if asked for a long one he was not giving me that same exuberance. It's probably me just asking too much of him.

"I'd just like to thank everyone for their support as there are a lot of worse things that can happen in life.

"I'm just very grateful to still be on the horse."
