Cooley Monsoon made it three wins on the bounce, taking the intermediate novice section by an impressive seven penalties.

His record this season is 5 wins from 9 competitive outings, 8 top 5 finishes and only one blip on his record at Bradwall with a 20 penalties in the Novice. He now steps up to Intermediate level at Upton and looks more than ready for the challenge.

Trevor Dicken’s Graf Cavalier is a new ride for Piggy but after a solid start at Great Witchingham last weekend, she made significant strides forward in all three phases to take 10th place in the Novice. A 25.3 dressage was followed by a lovely double clear with only 4.4 time penalties on the cross country dropping her down the order.
