    Gutted to hear Cause of Causes retirement though it's thoroughly deserved and the news of Silviniaco Conti dying this evening, another massive shame, makes you happy that he has ended his career in one piece.

    He wasn't the first, won't be the last but i'm not sure i'll ever have such fondness for a three times or even multiple festival winner as Cause of Causes.

    Incredible effort considering he ran and won the Virtual Grand National just a day before too

    Fondly recall watching a King George at home and my family, who my ridicule my interest and love of the game, going "So Rob *smugface*, which horse did you back?"

    I point at old Conti

    Cue Card earns himself a well earned retirement

    I was there when he won the Champion Bumper, aged 4 and @ 40/1 (obviously didn't back him).
    Followed him through all the ups and downs - so pleased he's been retired without having to watch his final race - well, actually I couldn't have watched his final race other than, Dr Who like, from behind the sofa.
    An old friend puts his hoofs up.

    I can't believe he beat Vautour

    Cue Card is a smashing horse... and Colin Tizzard's rise to be one of the trainers with a large scale operation in this country is 100% down to this very animal.

    I still can't believe he beat Vautour

    One of my favourite ever horses, so glad he made it out in very good health, and hope he has a happy retirement in Dorset.
