DUAL Cheltenham Festival winner Put The Kettle On was sold for £380,000 at the Goffs UK Aintree Sale on Thursday evening.

She was bought by Anthony Bromley of Highflyer Bloodstock on behalf of Simon Davies to visit his stallion Planteur who is standing at Chapel Stud.

A total of 13 lots sold for six-figure sums and it was Denis Murphy’s Dromahane point-to-point winner Croke Park who topped the sale.

Bids were taken around the busy Aintree winner's enclosure before the hammer dropped on Gordon Elliott Racing’s £400,000 bid.

Ciaran Murphy’s debut winning Irish pointer Deep Cave was another to feature when selling to Henry de Bromhead for £235,000 while another debut points winner, Colin Motherway’s Encanto Bruno, was purchased by John McConnell Racing for £210,000.

Goffs UK managing director Tim Kent commented: "Of the 13 six-figure lots, seven made £200,000 or more, clearly demonstrating the quality that was on offer and the demand for these top-class horses."
