At the end of the century, Paris began to modernise its public transport system to try to catch up with London. The first metro line was begun in 1897 between the Porte Maillot and the Porte de Vincennes. It was finished in time for the 1900 Universal Exposition. Two new bridges were built over the Seine. One was the Pont Alexandre III, which connected the left bank with the site of the 1900 Exposition. Its cornerstone was laid in 1896 by Emperor Nicholas II of Russia, who, in 1894, had succeeded his father, Alexander III of Russia. The new avenue between the bridge and the Champs Élysées was first named the Avenue Alexandre III, then Avenue Nicolas II, and again Avenue Alexandre III until 1966, when it was finally renamed Avenue Winston-Churchill. The same engineers who built the modern iron structure of the Pont Alexandre III also built the Pont Mirabeau, which connected Auteuil and Javel.
At the 2013 Cheltenham Festival, The New One contested the Grade I Baring Bingham Novices' Hurdle over two miles, five furlongs and started 7/2 second favourite behind the unbeaten Irish-trained five-year-old Pont Alexandre. Sam Twiston-Davies settled the horse just behind the leaders and took the lead from Pont Alexandre approaching the final hurdle. The New One stayed on strongly on the run-in to win by four lengths from Rule The World with Pont Alexandre four and a half lengths further back in third. Nigel Twiston-Davies admitted to being so nervous that he spent most of the race in the toilet, only emerging for the closing stages. He went on to say that while the horse could compete in steeplechases in the following season it was also possible that The New One would be dropped back in distance to contest the 2014 Champion Hurdle. On his final appearance of the season The New One was matched against more experienced hurdlers in the Aintree Hurdle on 4 April and was made favourite ahead of Grandouet, Oscar Whisky (winner of the race in 2011 and 2012), Zarkandar, Thousand Stars (Grande Course de Haies d'Auteuil) and Countrywide Flame (Triumph Hurdle, Fighting Fifth Hurdle). The New One moved up to join the leaders with three hurdles left to negotiate, but has beaten half a length by Zarkandar in what the BBC described as "a thrilling finish".
