BOBS WORTH added the Lexus Chase to his big-race tally whilst over hurdles, THE NEW ONE took the Aintree Hurdle and MY TENT OR YOURS won a brace of Grade 1 events and finished a very close second in the Champion Hurdle itself.

Over fences BALDER SUCCES proved to be one of the very best two-mile novice chasers around with a number of impressive wins culuminating in the Aintree Grade 1. TAQUIN DU SEUIL, UXIZANDRE and HINTERLAND were other Grade 1 winning novices for Highflyer. Whilst over hurdles, JOSSES HILL, ROYAL BOY and LAC FONTANA all won Grade 1 novice hurdles during the season.
