Joe Tizzard: “Theatre Guide is in great form for big race target”
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.
14.05 Newbury – Theatre Guide
Theatre Guide has been saved for this race. He ran really well in this race last year and would have won but for making a mistake at the last. He’s in great form.
Kim rides him every day and she says he’s absolutely bouncing. He doesn’t get any younger but that doesn’t seem to stop him putting in big performances. We are looking forward to running him.
15.50 Newbury – Faustinovick
We are fact-finding with him a little bit. He looked like the winner everywhere at Sandown last time but then stopped coming to the last for whatever reason. Nothing has come to light since. At that time a couple of ours weren’t running that well, so that might have been it.
We think he’s well handicapped, and we are going back to Newbury where he has run well before.
So we are just looking for a better run, as he hasn’t been finishing his races recently.
