With some many falsely  run NH races e.g. the last at Navan which turned into a sprint after the 2nd last, you have to admire those horses who get their head down right at the start and try to make all the running. One of my favourites was  Limestone Lad.

Arkle wasn't exactly a specialist front-runner but he often went on very early.

Some more - Attivo virtually making all to win the Triumph hurdle in 1974.

Sabin Du Loir - consistent long distance hurdler of Pipe's.

Anaglog's Daughter - tried to make all in the KIng George on a couple occasions but didn't really stay 3m.

In more recent times, I can only think of Overturn as a decent, consistent front runner.

Sabin was a great front runner.

Beat Dawn Run one day, well Dawn Run fell.

Sabin Du Loir beat Dawn Run in the 1983 Sun Alliance Hurdle (now neptune). West Tip was 3rd!
A pretty good renewal!

Even Keel.
Out And About
Hunters Teasure - won about 8 novice hurdles for Eric Cousins, going a long way clear each time, and was considered a possible threat to Persian War, even as a novice, but she wasn't quite up to that class.

remember many years ago the last race at Catterick backing the front runner to get out of trouble, the horse won by a distance, always remember the commentator saying its a doddle for noddle, anyone remember who trained it.

ronnie, actually won 3 in a row at Catterick, hard to know which one you are referring to as on each occasion it was the last race of the meeting...!

Nobody will remember this one, a 2 mile chaser of Stephenson's called Giolla Padraig.

Used to go miles clear and many times stayed clear.

The late Alan Merrigan rode Giolla Padraig.
