Giovanni had a hugely successful trip to Nunney with the novice horses. Alvescot Flash the Cash, owned by Andrea Vecchi, won his section with a 22.5 dressage score and double clear. Elixir, owned by Jo Preston-Hunt, made it a 1-2, finishing runner up to his stable mate.

KEC Malties Trend, owned by Guy and Sharon Monk, slotted in to fifth place in the same section, whilst in a different class Balladeer Mister T finished 10th.

It was then straight off to Little Gatcombe. Kathryn had Mickleholme Calado, owned by Jess Spalding, in the BE90Open for his affiliated debut. He show jumped clear, and just had a green moment across country.

Sophie Butcher’s Mickleholme Diavita placed third in a BE100 class under Gio. Gio took Monbeg Rhodes steadily round for a double clear, while Belle Noir was clear across country but rolled a couple of poles.
