The Goffs UK Aintree Sale claimed its second Cheltenham Festival Grade 1 victory from just three boutique sales with graduate TOPOFTHEGAME winning the RSA Novices' Chase for trainer Paul Nicholls in the colours of Gold Cup winning owner Paul Barber.

Topofthegame also led a Goffs UK winning double on day two of the Festival with the August Sale graduate and reigning Grand National hero TIGER ROLL winning his second Cross Country Race, and fourth Festival win, when storming across the line 22 lengths ahead of his closest rival for trainer Gordon Elliott and owner Gigginstown House Stud.

The Aintree Sale also sold the Grade 1 Cheltenham Festival winner SAMCRO and the 2019 sale will be held on 4 April after racing at the Randox Health Grand National Festival. The catalogue will be available online from mid-March.
