Sun, Feb 15th, 2015

Penzanace won  both races in 2005, while the winners in 2011, Zarakandar, and 2010, Soldatino made British debuts in this before doubling up in the Triumph 20 days later. Since 1988 six horses have won both the Adonis and Triumph; Mysilv, Katarino, Snow Drop, Penzance, Soldatino and Zarkandar.

Punjabi and Binocular both won this is their four year old season and added the Champion Hurdle as six year olds. 

While it was fences which brought out the best of, the Martin Pipe trained Arkle winner, Well Chief he did win this in 2003, meaning that 6 future Cheltenham Festival grade 1 winners have emerged from the race in the last eleven years.
