What is the Mersey Novices' Hurdle?

The Mersey Novices' Hurdle is a Grade 1 event held on Grand National day at Aintree, over a distance of two and a half miles. 

The race is open to novice hurdlers aged four and over, and was upgraded to Grade 1 status in 2014. A host of notable names have won the race over the years, and it regularly features the winner of the Baring Bingham Novices' Hurdle from the previous month's Cheltenham Festival - with the the last horse to complete the double being the Willie Mullins-trained Yorkhill in 2016. 

Notable names on the roll of honour include the three-time Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Best Mate (2000), dual Cheltenham Festival winner Simonsig (2012) and Grade 1-winning chaser Tidal Bay (2007).
