Land Rover dominates at Aintree with three Grade 1s

Four Grade 1 winners, including three from the Land Rover Sale, was the highlight of a fantastic Aintree Festival for Goffs graduates. Felix Desjy, Reserve Tank, Ornua and If The Cap Fits were all victorious at the top level, while Moon Over Germany and Three Musketeers achieved Grade 3 success at Aintree.

Following an incredible Cheltenham Festival where Goffs Land Rover graduates won five races including three Grade 1s to become the leading store for the sixth year in a row, it also led the way at Aintree.

Closer to home Land Rover graduate Dommage Pour Toi won the Grade 2 Easter Festival Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse.
