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)?

And AP rode his first festival winner for??

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....

Charter Party in the Ritz Club ?, AP's first winner was defo on Kibreet in the Grand Annual, not sure who trained it was it Hobbsy ?

Won a Grade 1 championship race in their first ever festival? Maybe... hmmm... good question
Report HistoricWarwick March 10, 2021 2:56 PM GMT
Correct seaserpent.  Dunwoody won the GC on Charter Party but Scu won the Festival Handicap.  Kibreet was Hobbs.

Another one this time a lot more random...

Was Charter Party pink or purple lol? I can't remember?

Really want to know the answer to this one!

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 !

Willie Mullin has won 10 Champion Bumpers. Who rode his first winner ?
