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.

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.
Best remembered for the race she did not win (Devon Loch's Grand National), but successful in the King George (Manicou), Whitbread (Special Cargo) and Spa - now Stayers' - Hurdle (Antiar).
