A lovely win from Waiting Patiently and Ruth Jefferson. A brilliant horse.
Off the front, Cue Card has run an absolute belter. That was a very quick gallop they’ve gone there and he’s stayed out on his own all the way until Waiting Patiently got there. Two fantastic horses. Two great runs.February 17, 2018 at 15:45 #1342741

Excellent from the winner and excellent from cue card, i hope the retirement calls (previous to this) are firmly forgotten, ran a fantastic race at his age.February 17, 2018 at 15:46 #1342742

I wonder if Cue Card May well have won if not for Speredek. And I wouldn’t be surprised if paddy Brennan had a word with the stewards about Hughes dangerously cutting him up after the last. Great race nonetheless.February 17, 2018 at 15:53 #1342744

Dont think he would have won but he did cut him off quite badly, caught CC on the head as he cut acrossFebruary 17, 2018 at 15:53 #1342745

An unforgettable race
Waiting patiently emerged as a horse of true quality at kempton and looked set to cruise home today but this great great horse cue card never let go. What a star. How many horses have battled away at the top level for so long and with such determinationFebruary 17, 2018 at 15:54 #1342746

Very happy to see two of my favourite horses fight out a great duel, although I was rooting for Cue Card the most. If it comes up a bit soft at Cheltenham I think Waitingly Patienly will be favourite for the RyanAir.
I hope Paddy Brennan will Cue Card again next time.February 17, 2018 at 15:56 #1342747

Fabulous from Cue Card but for Waiting Patiently to move so smoothly through the field from a long way back and come to Cue Card’s girth cruising tells you all you need to know. This is a top class animal who has been brought along so quietly and cleverly that he still has quite a bit to learn. Gold Cup horse.
Never argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience, then onlookers might not be able to tell the difference. https://lazybet.com/February 17, 2018 at 16:01 #1342749

Don’t think Waiting Patiently is a Cheltenham horse even if he gets his ground, personally. He seems to thrive on these flatter tracks.February 17, 2018 at 16:05 #1342750

No enquiry but I’ve only just had chance to see it back and surely someone had to have a word with Brian Hughes about that manoeuvre.February 17, 2018 at 16:09 #1342751

Well done Brian Hughes for a ride that suited his horse’s name, and CC for making it a great race.February 17, 2018 at 16:11 #1342752

Shame Hughes felt the need to cut to the rail so aggressively and stop Cue Card in his tracks. Diluted the battle at the end, which would have been great to see and would have seen him win anyway.
Great to see Cue Card go well, I don’t think he quite has it in him at 12 to win at Cheltenham, he’s always going to be flagging at the end, but I’ve always fancied him as more of a 2 1/2 mile horse, it just always surprises me when he goes well over further, so maybe one final spin in the Ryanair may bring the best out of him, he clearly still travels well.

He won comfortably at Carlisle which has plenty of ups and downs, not unlike Cheltenham in some way, Sedgefield isn’t flat, nor Newcastle or for that matter Ascot. On the evidence of 7 wins and 2 seconds from 9 races he handles pretty much any track that he’s presented with.February 17, 2018 at 16:35 #1342760

Interesting that Brian Hughes said the ground was quick enough even though it was soft.
Wonder if we ever see the horse at Cheltenham.February 17, 2018 at 16:36 #1342761

Can only echo what’s been said already! Brilliant race and tremendous performances from the front two…weight of my money seemed to weigh down Top Notch who I was never happy with from some way out!
Really hope we get to see Waiting Patiently run at Cheltenham, would be a crying shame if he didn’t go there…up the North!
