Top Three Gigginstown Horses Of All Time

1. Don Cossack

Despite winning the Cheltenham Gold Cup for the first time in 2006 with War Of Attrition, it's Don Cossack's success in 2016 that will stand out above the rest.

German-bred, the now-twelve-year-old was never seen again after his victory in the Festival showpiece after a career plagued by injury.

Far more consistent in Ireland than in Britain, he fell in the RSA Chase as a novice, along with the same outcome later on in his career in the King George of 2015 won by Cue Card.

Of his victories in the UK, the overall-five-time Grade One winner was ruthless at Aintree when beating the latter by almost a thirty-length margin, before his memorable success on Prestbury Park three months later.

Things may have been different if Colin Tizzard's stablestar had stood up from three-out, but the Don showed relentless stamina up the Cheltenham hill to prevail ahead of old foe Djakadam.

One of the elites.

2. Tiger Roll

The dual Grand National hero Tiger Roll will go down as one of the greatest horses of all time- letalone one of Gigginstown House Stud's inmates.

A four-timer winner at the Cheltenham Festival, the nine-year-old has proved his stamina, his versatility and above all, his class over the last six years.

Winner of the JCB Triumph Hurdle on his third ever career start, he did not always get his head in front in his early days.

Crying out for a step up in trip over fences, he prevailed in the National Hunt four-miler under Lisa O'Neill in 2017, before going onto assert himself as one of the finest stayers around - eventually over the unique cross-country fences.

Twice a winner of the National, the Tiger has also twice come through the 3m7f Glenfarcas Chase at Cheltenham as prep for the Aintree showpiece, adding in a two-and-a-half mile hurdle win at Navan too this spring, when so-wrongly sent off a 25/1 outsider.

Mr Consistent, Mr Adaptable; he looks to have the perfect profile to rewrite the history books next year once again should connections go for an infamous hat-trick at Aintree, emulating Red Rum's achievements in the 70's.

You would certainly not argue against it.

3. Apples Jade

Despite being off sorts in her three most recent runs, there is no doubting Apple's Jade's ability to race and win over different distances, given her outstanding Group One record.

Twenty-three career starts have merited fourteen victories, nine of which at the top level.

Again, her form has been much more favourable in Ireland than in Britain, and in the last couple of seasons she has completely hosed up over varying lengths on connections' home soil over the Irish Sea, only to flop at Cheltenham in March.

However, earning £750,000 for her owners is an unbelievable achievement given her age of seven, and there could be plenty more good days ahead of her if correcting her spring form, before eventually surely going onto become a successful broodmare.

Prior to the Festival this term, connections and trainer Gordon Elliott had big decisions to make regarding her entries at Prestbury Park, having won over two, two-and-a-half and three miles this season.

Sadly she failed to figure in the Champion Hurdle over two-miles, and clearly her and Cheltenham do not agree.

Given her record elsewhere - in particular in Ireland, she is still regarded as one of the finest mares of our generation and one of the best in the maroon silks of Gigginstown in the past few years.

Remarkable figures, and hopefully we see her bounce back to her best next season.
