No plans but Cue Card 'absolutely fine' after Ryanair reverse

Cue Card after pulling up in the Ryanair Colin Tizzard reports Cue Card to be none the worse afterThursday's disappointing effort in the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
The 12-year-old was pulled up before the 12th fence by Paddy Brennan after leading through the early stages in the two-mile-five-furlong contest.
Connections had indicated the Ryanair Chase was likely to be Cue Card's Festival swansong and while a trip to Aintree has been mentioned as a possibility, Tizzard and his team will take stock before making any further plans.
He told Racing UK: "He's absolutely fine, ever so fresh and there you are. He just didn't like the heavy ground - he's getting old now. T here's nothing physical anyway.
"There's no plans, well get this week out of the way then we will make plan."
