Inglis Drever - World Class
Inglis Drever, who was brought off the subs bench to stand in for stable-star Royal Rosa in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle, proved himself a star in his own right when eclipsing the mighty Baracouda in the Grade 1 feature to provide Graham Lee, Howard Johnson and owners Andrea and Graham Wylie with a third winner at the 2005 Festival.
Moscow Flyer
Moscow Flyer "Different Class"
Barry Geraghty, who quite rightly milked every last drop out of the amazing reception which greeted Moscow Flyer in the winner’s enclosure after his brilliant triumph in the Queen Mother Chase, had no hesitation in reaffirming that "he is the best that I have ridden."
Hardy Eustace
Hardy Eustace retains crown
Reigning Smurfit Champion hurdler Hardy Eustace retained his crown with a brilliant start-to-finish success to hold off fellow Irish challengers Harchibald and Brave Inca by a neck and the same in the opening day showpiece.

Best Mate
Best Mate rides into history

Best Mate joined racing's greats when he clung on to win an exciting Cheltenham Gold Cup for the third successive year in 2004. Henrietta Knight's brilliant nine-year-old emulated the feat of the legendary Arkle - but he had to dig very deep to hold off Sir Rembrandt and Harbour Pilot. Best Mate, trained by Henrietta Knight and ridden by Jim Culloty, hit the front approaching the final fence and held on up the hill to justify odds of 8-11.
