Jim Crowley: “Silent Echo can get me on the score sheet today”

Coral ambassador discusses racing behind closed doors and today’s rides What’s it like racing behind closed doors? You don’t really notice the lack of crowds when you’re racing. The ground was very fast. It will suit some horses but won’t suit others. It looks like there are some nice horses coming out this weekend. We are slowly getting used to our masks. It’s uncomfortable to ride with something... more...

Joe Tizzard: “We certainly haven’t lost any faith in Lostintranslation”

Coral ambassador previews the Tizzard stables’ Gold Cup Day runners Cheltenham 14.10 – Eldorado Allen Eldorado Allen is a nice horse, but he picked up an injury at Aintree last season, meaning he was out for over a year.  Despite that absence the handicapper didn’t miss after his first run back at Sandown, and then we possibly ran him a bit too soon back at Sandown in the Contenders Hurdle.&n... more...

Joe Tizzard: “Kilbricken Storm has to be competitive off his current mark”

Coral ambassador previews the Tizzard stables’ Cheltenham Day Three runners Cheltenham 13.30 – Reserve Tank Reserve Tank was a dual Grade 1-winning novice hurdler, and he’s not done an awful lot wrong over fences this season, finishing second at Chepstow first time up, winning a Grade 2, and then finishing second in another Grade 2 when he didn’t run his race.  He’s not a horse who like... more...

Joe Tizzard: “Fiddlerontheroof has what you need to win the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle’”

| 09.03.2020

Coral ambassador previews the Tizzard stables’ Cheltenham Day One runners 13.30 Cheltenham (Supreme Novices Hurdle) – Fiddlerontheroof He’s in great form. He hasn’t run since the Tolworth Hurdle when he became a Grade 1 winner. This race has always been the plan. He’s a strong staying two-miler which is what you need to win a Supreme, and it looks like he’s going to get his ground. It’s not like h... more...

Joe Tizzard: “This is the strongest team we’ve ever sent to the Festival”

The latest insight from the Tizzard stables ahead of Cheltenham We were going to run War Lord in the EBF Final at Sandown, it would have been a nice opportunity for him off a competitive mark, but that’s gone, so we’ll look for something else for him. And we might have one runner at Taunton on Monday, but really it’s all about Cheltenham now.  The build up – fingers-crossed! – to next we... more...

Joe Tizzard: “Theatre Guide is in great form for big race target”

| 28.02.2020

The latest insight from the Tizzard stables We’ve had some nice winners over the last few weekends but it’s a quieter one for us this weekend. The constant soft and heavy ground can just take its toll after a while, and so we want to let the ground come right for quite a few horses and ensure we have some ammo for the spring. Saturday’s runners 14.05 Newbury – Theatre Guide Theatre Gui... more...

Joe Tizzard on Native River’s injury and Saturday’s runners at Kempton

| 21.02.2020

The latest insight from the Tizzard stables Native River’s injury It was really disappointing for Native River to pick up an injury which will keep him out for the season and rule him out of Cheltenham. It was particularly frustrating for the owners, but he has been a fantastic horse for them and us over the years and this little blip is just one of those things. It’s only a small tear and horses ... more...

Joe Tizzard: “Lostintranslation should be in fantastic shape for the Gold Cup”

| 21.02.2020

The latest insight from the Tizzard stables in the build-up to Cheltenham We’ve got 28 runners going to Cheltenham and we’re working really hard now to get them all in the best shape for the festival. The ground will dictate where a lot of them run and that can change very quickly. There is plenty of rain forecast in the short term but Cheltenham can dry out so fast. We want to give ourselves the ... more...

Joe Tizzard: “He’s a lovely young horse, and could end up anywhere”

Weekend racing insight from the Tizzard stables Saturday For the second weekend running, we’re set to be hit by a storm, and with Ascot, Haydock and Wincanton all calling inspections for Saturday, let’s just hope we get some racing going ahead. Exeter also deserves praise for rescheduling the lost meeting from last Sunday, moving it to this Sunday, but there must be a doubt about it going ahead.&n... more...
