Aidan O'Brien scored wins in 2016 and 2017, having not won prior.

No jockey has dominated the race in recent history but Johnny Murtagh did score consecutive wins in 2011 and 2012 with Lightening Pearl and Rosdhu Queen.

It's currently run down the Rowley Mile at Newmarket which adds to the excitement of the race.
