Recent Winners

The Byrne Group Plate (formerly called The Festival Plate, The Racing Post Plate and The Mildmay of Flete) has proven to be a successful race in recent years for the yards of Venetia Williams and Nicky Henderson, who have trained the winner of four of the last five renewals.

Novice chasers have a good record in race as they often turn out to be well handicapped compared to their more experienced rivals. However, with the introduction of the Jewson Handicap specifically for novices, that trend may decline in coming years.
