CLASSY CARD CUT FOR KING GEORGE.
CUE CARD was slashed from 10-1 (from 20-1) for the William Hill King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day after a faultless return to action in Exeter's Haldon Gold Cup yesterday.
Colin Tizzard's 2010 Cheltenham Bumper winner (5-6f), ridden by the trainer's son Joe, came home 26 lengths clear of Edgardo Sol.
Tizzard snr, who may give the six-year-old his first try over three miles in the Betfair Chase at Haydock on November 24, said: "You couldn't fault the way he did it today. When Joe squeezed him coming out of the back straight he was gone."
MOUNT ATHOS will return for another crack at the Melbourne Cup in 2013 after finishing fifth to Green Moon at Flemington in the early hours of yesterday morning.
"He can have a similar campaign and come back next year - he finished like a train," said the five-yearold's owner Dr Marwan Koukash.
Green Moon, once trained by Harry Dunlop, led home former Sir Michael Stoute inmate Fiorente, with Marco Botti's Jakkalberry faring best of the European raiders in third.
