KAYF TARA, the sire of last month's King George VI Chase winner Thistlecrack, will stand at a career-high fee of £10,000 this year, up from £5,000 in 2016.

The son of Sadler's Wells had a remarkable Cheltenham Festival in 2016, with a trio of winners including Champion Bumper scorer Ballyandy, RSA Chase winner Blaklion and Thistlecrack seven lengths clear of his opposition in the World Hurdle.

Thistlecrack landed the Kempton showpiece in December, while another son of Kayf Tara, Special Tiara, saw off Sir Valentino by half a length in the Grade 2 Desert Orchid Chase at the same course a day later.

Schiaparelli won five Group 1 races over 12f, including the German Derby, and his fee will remain unchanged for a sixth consecutive season at £2,000.
