The Colin Tizzard trained Thistlecrack has been the talk of the racing world over the last year. At Last year’s Cheltenham Festival he went off as the evens favourite for the World Hurdle, as many racing fans were asking the question could Thistlecrack win at Cheltenham? The answer to that was an emphatic yes, as the Thistlecrack was just too good on the day. Cole Harden who had won the World Hurdle in 2015 could only watch on as Thistlecrack was a mere dot in the distance. After the talk was could Thistlecrack dominate the World Hurdle, in the same manner, Big Buck’s had done. However, jockey Tom Scudamore had hinted that this gem could be a Gold Cup horse in the future. In April Tizzard took Thistlecrack to Aintree but after Cheltenham was a very short priced favourite, going off at 2/7 Scudamore guided the new superstar Thistlecrack to another victory. After both trainer and jockey dropped a huge hint that Thistlecrack would go steeplechasing in the new season, opening the door for the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

In October 2016 Thistlecrack went chasing for the first time at Chepstow over three miles, the bookies weren't taking any chances as they made him 1/6 favourite. Thistlecrack justified the price winning by a comfortable four lengths after being eased down. Another two runs followed in quick time, and two victories were quickly achieved. Then Tizzard dropped the news that Thistlecrack would go to Kempton on Boxing Day and take on stablemate Cue Card in the King George. May of the great Steeplechaser have won the King George with; Desert Orchid, Best Mate, Kicking King, Kauto Star, Long Run, Silviniaco Conti and Cue Card all winning the Boxing Day Showpiece. The race was billed as master vs apprentice, as trainer Colin Tizzard has vowed to let his stars battle it out. For the early part the field was packed together, then as they turned for home with four to jump Scudamore let Thistlecrack go. The rest of the field had no answers, as the apprentice was now the master. After such a display from Thistlecrack, you could now only get even money on him to win the Gold Cup in the spring, but the punters were still running to bet their bets on Thistlecrack.
