Cue Card produces a stunning run to win the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham.

7-2 shot Cue Card ran a stunning race to win the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham.

The second favourite, who was ridden by Joe Tizzard, looked to have the edge over the opposition for the second half of the race, and he stormed clear two fences out.

He came under pressure from First Lieutenant, but the favourite had no answer as Cue Card cantered home for a comfortable victory.

Tizzard told Channel 4: "People think that when he is put under pressure, his jumping falls apart, but you can see today that he was so relaxed and it didn't matter that he had horse beside him. He ran really well."

For Non Stop came home in third.
