Frodon gave Paul Nicholls an incredible 11th win in the King George when putting in a sublime front-running display at Kempton Park for the 2020 renewal.

The 2019 Ryanair winner disappointed at Aintree on his previous start but was not for catching under Bryony Frost at Christmas, landing a major blow in the Triple Crown as stable-mate’s Cyrname and Clan Des Obeaux were left in his wake.

Lizzie Kelly had become the first female Grade 1 winning jockey at the course in 2016, with Frost emulating that success aboard Black Corton twelve months later.

The Somerset pilot then made history at the Cheltenham Festival, landing the first top-level success as a woman rider over obstacles when the aforementioned Frodon won the Ryanair.

In more recent history, Rachael Blackmore became the first female winner of the Grand National as Minella Times landed the Aintree feature last week.
