, horns and similar gadgets on their private vehicles to part the traffic for their campaign convoys.

Paul Nicholls decided just 10 minutes before Cheltenham's Grand Annual Chase was declared that Graham Wylie's son of Westerner should wear blinkers

"He was a little bit disappointing last time, but it was at Cheltenham which it appears he doesn't like, but he's back at Kempton and he wears blinkers
for the first time," said the Nicholashayne trainer.
