Tuesday 

Honeysuckle was the first winner for players and she landed the Champion Hurdle for a second time. Marie's Rock struck next winning the Mares' Hurdle at a price of 18/1! Well done to David Marshall who was the only player to select the winner.                       

Wednesday 

Two more horses won for players on Wednesday. Sir Gerhard recorded a comfortable victory in the Ballymore and Energumene easily beat the competition in the Champion Chase after Shishkin pulled up early and Chacun Pour Soi unseated five out.                 

Thursday               

Galopin Des Champs looked set for a runaway victory in the Turners, but a fall at the last left the way clear for Bob Olinger to come through for the win. For many Allaho was the banker of the week, and he didn't disappoint winning the Ryanair by 14 lengths.             

The final point scoring winner on Thursday was Flooring Porter, who made it back to back victories in the Stayers', much to the delight of his owners on course.          

Friday      

History was made on Friday as A Plus Tard and Rachael Blackmore won the Gold Cup. It was an impressive win too as A Plus Tard powered 15 lengths clear as the final fence.     

The final point scorer of the week was Elimay in the Grade 2 Mares' Chase. Well done again to David Marshall who was the only player to pick the winning horse.  

With so many points on offer there have been some changes in our standings. Jon Nuttall is our new leader on 432.5. John Tillett is in second on 410 and Keith Holmes in third on 405.
