The five supplementary lots are:

This will be the third renewal of the Aintree Sale, which is famed for selling the unbeaten Ballymore Novices' Hurdle winner Samcro – hailed by many as the most exciting jumper for years – for £335,000 in 2016.
Other leading graduates include Black Op, who finished second to Samcro at the Cheltenham Festival, Grade 3-winning Hurdler Topofthegame, who was narrowly beaten in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham, and Grade 2 winners Blackbow and Constantine Bay.
