Gio had three rides at Belton, with Cosmos Baby the star of the yard. He jumped a lovely double clear in the OI to finish 16th.

Dacapo 277 was also clear across country but not totally focussed in the showjumping, whilst Cult Rewind enjoyed his pre-Badminton run; a single pole down and unlucky glance off across country – like so many others jumping the advanced track.
