Joe Tizzard: “I think Born In Borris has a cracking chance”

Ascot 13.50 – War Lord

We’ve got four runners in action today, starting with War Lord at Ascot. He’s been really consistent this season, he goes on soft ground as he proved when winning at Haydock, and he’ll love this 2m 3f trip around here.

The handicapper had his say after that Haydock win, but in what is an ultra-competitive race, he’s got a live chance, he certainly seems in lovely form at home.

Taunton 14.10 – Sizing Codelco

We want to get a run into Sizing Codelco, he’s 12-years-old now and he wins his races in the spring, but the handicapper hasn’t really given him much of chance for a while now.

We’d like to just find him a small race where he could pick up some prize money, but the handicapper needs to help him out a bit.

Haydock 14.40 – Lamanver Pippin

Lamanver Pippin was slightly below par last time out, but on his first run of the season – third at Cheltenham – and his third-place finish at the Festival before that, he has a chance here.

He only carries 10-4 here, and on what will be extremely testing ground, that is a huge plus. There won’t be many finishers I’m sure, this fellow jumps and stays, and off a low weight I’ve got a feeling he can run well.

Taunton 16.00 – Born In Borris

This mare is probably our best chance of the day. She ran well to finish third at Exeter last time, the winner has come out and won again since, and this trip will suit her.

She does carry top weight, but I hope that won’t stop her, this looks a lovely race for her and I think she has a cracking chance.




Joe Tizzard

Former Jump jockey Joe Tizzard enjoyed a stellar career in the saddle, with his record 91 wins to claim the 1998-99 champion conditional title gaining him prominence. Tizzard’s first Cheltenham Festival successes came during that period, including an Arkle win onboard the Paul Nicholls trained Flagship Uberalles. However, it was his Grade 1 victories in partnership with Cue Card, trained by dad Colin, which really catapulted Joe into the big time. Now assistant trainer to his father the Tizzards’ Dorset yard is home to some of the most exciting horses in training, including Cue Card, Thistlecrack and Native River.
