- 10 of the last 10 winners (and all 13 of the winners to date) had previously won over 3m or further.
- 10 of the last 10 winners had had 6 or less previous starts in cross-country chases.
Any Currency was an exception to this trend when he won in 2016, but he was subsequently disqualified.
- 8 of the last 10 winners were Irish-trained.
These horses accounted for 57% of the total field, but made up 81% of the total places.
- 7 of the last 10 winners had at least placed in a cross-country chase at either Cheltenham or Punchestown.
One exception was Cause Of Causes last year, who had finished 5th at Cheltenham in January and allegedly spent a few days schooling over these obstacles. Another was Balthazar King in 2012, who had been running well when he ran out at Cheltenham the previous December.
