Forgive me for posting this twice (I missed the quiz last night on the main Horse Racing post and I doubt anyone will see me posting it there).

Festival question for you aficionados.....

When it comes to the festival, what do Choc Thornton, Dickie Johnson and Peter Scudamore all have in common?

Have they all won every graded hurdle at the festival (bar the mares which clearly predates Scu)?

I knew Dickies was Anzum in 1999 and Choc's was on King Lucifer in the Kim Muir but was unsure about Scu and took a guess that it could have been Solar Cloud in the Triumph !

Scu's winner was on a dual festival winner which ran during a golden era for chasing....

Correct seaserpent.  Dunwoody won the GC on Charter Party but Scu won the Festival Handicap.  Kibreet was Hobbs.

Guess No 2 is not Charter Party because like Denman ran in 2 different colours... Either Pink or Green

So.... Alverton?

Which then sadly was lost at the GN.

Alverton is correct jockersjow. 

I am sure Charter Party won in white with yellow stars but the post has it winning in Mould's green and white stars.  So I had to check https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVbjE8u_sMY

Tremendous field although I am not sure it would have won if Cavvies Clown didn't horlicks the second last and as for Forgive and Forget.....

Such a shame with Alverton would have probably won that national carrying only 10-13 was cruising at the time !
