Excellent vertexing, tracking, and jet energy resolution enable a variety of forward analyses to be performed using data from the LHCb detector. Recent results on the performance of inclusive b and c-tagging algorithms used by LHCb are presented. These taggers are applied to W+jet data to measure W+b-jet and W+c-jet asymmetries as well as ratios to inclusive W+jet production. Additionally, the first forward observation of top using Run I LHCb data is shown.
