The big race of the day, Fontwell's Ovaltine Hurdle, worth all of PS1,536 8s, was won by Antiar, saddled, like three other winners, by the royal trainer Peter Cazalet, who in doing so nudged Middleham's Neville Crump off the top of the trainers' table as well as giving Peter's chef Albert Roux something to cook for that night back at Fairlawne, near Tonbridge.
Several antiar rhythmic, anti-infective, anti-psychotic and other agents, might trigger TdP by blocking specific potassium channels in the myocyte membrane.
Marconi and Antiar are the only two winners at the Cheltenham Festival to be owned by members of the royal family.
THE Cheltenham Festival has existed for a century, but Marconi and Antiar are the only two winners at the meeting to be owned by members of the royal family.
The Queen Mother's Antiar won the 1965 Spa Hurdle while Marconi won the National Hunt Juvenile Chase in 1936 at the only festival run during the reign of King Edward VIII.
For the Queen Mother, Cazalet trained 1956 Grand National loser Devon Loch, 1965 Spa (now World) Hurdle winner Antiar, 1967 Champion Hurdle runner-up Makaldar, and Manicou, who in 1950 became the first of his four King George VI Chase winners.
Peter Cazalet was another trainer who regularly bought horses in France, and his policy paid off with Manicou (1950 Broadway Novices' Chase), Turpial (1960 Triumph Hurdle), Antiar (1965 Spa Hurdle) and others.
Antiar in the 1965 Spa (now Stayers') Hurdle was the Queen Mother's only Cheltenham Festival winner, but her best horse was Makaldar, who was the champion hurdler of 1966/67, even though he was runner-up to the inferior Saucy Kit in the Champion Hurdle.
The Queen Mother also had good results from smart chasers like The Rip, winner of 13 races including the 1961 Grand Sefton Trial at Hurst Park and the 1965 Coventry (now Racing Post) Chase; another Lingfield specialist in Laffy, who also won the 1962 Ulster Harp National; Silver Dome, whose seven royal victories included the 1964 Becher Chase at Aintree; and Antiar, who became her only winner at the Cheltenham Festival when taking the Spa (now Stayers') Hurdle in 1965.
Her other two champions were Antiar and Black Magic, a headstrong, bold-jumping front-runner who was the best novice chaser of 1970/71, winning all five of his completed races in fine style, including the Scilly Isles Beginners' Chase.
