Cue Card won the Bet At Bluesq.com On Your Mobile Novices' Chase at Chepstow yesterday in impressive style by 3 1/2 lengths from Micheal Flips with the Paul Nicholl's Silviniaco Conti further back in third .

Paul Nicholls had warned that the race over 2M 31/2 furlongs may come a bit too soon for Silviniaco Conti but Cue Card clearly has the measure over his rival at this type of distance and Cue Card was able to make all the running and win with something in hand .

Cue Card was ridden by the trainer's son Joe Tizzard and the winning jockey told At The Races "He's always been a fast jumper and he's accurate. He's a top-class horse and you need to be like that to keep up with them in big races."

Bookmaker Victor Chandler were most impressed cutting Cue Card from 20/1 to 10/1 for The Arkle Chase but Cue Card who was fourth in the Supreme Novice Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March could well be one of the leading novice chasers at the 2012 Cheltenham Festival .

Tainer Colin Tizzard said afterwards "He had quite a hard time of it at the end of last season and I'm not sure he was quite right . He has strengthened up and is more relaxed ".

Cue Card is available at 14/1 with Paddy Power and Skybet for the Irish Independent Arkle Trophy at the 2012 Cheltenham Festival .
