Invader took two of the three weekend series and the Mersey Ferries Bell for the overall weekend prize. The other weekend series winner was Disco Volante.
Merle owned by Max Cooke claimed four of the five series for the Mylnes with the fifth success going to Merk (Ron Hampton, Eric McDonough and Richard Rycroft).
