It’s been a pretty good race for the bookies too with only three favourites winning in the last fifteen years. The Willie Mullins trained Vautourwas a very impressive winner of the 2014race. Mullins followed up with Douvan in 2015 and is a trainer to follow in novice events at the Festival. In 2016 the home side got their noses in front courtesy of the Nicky Henderson trained second favourite Altior.

Although the race is open to 4yo’s the race almost always goes the way of older horses and out of the last 14winners, 12of them have been aged 5 or 6.
