THE powerful influence that Sadler’s Wells (by Northern Dancer) has exerted on the National Hunt sector was evident again last weekend with another string of blacktype winners that represented his line.

These included the four-year-old Tea In Transvaal who took her record over obstacles to five wins from nine starts with a six-length victory in the Listed Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle over the extended two miles at Newbury on Saturday.
