No better way for Kings Advocate (Hugo) to prepare for the CCI** at Tattersalls than to win his Intermediate on a 25.9 dressage and double clear at Aston le Walls. He was foot perfect all day and I'm thrilled for his owners Michele and Malcom Hedley.
I feel I'm still just getting to know him having only had him a month, but he has been beautifully produced by Chris Hall which makes my job a lot easier. He will go to Tatts and then we will make a plan for him after that, but Blenheim CIC*** 8/9 years old would be a good aim.
Wasting Light also did a double clear to finish 8th in the Open Intermediate the day before. I had run him steady as the ground had needed a bit of rain. He will also go to Tatts CCI** next.
We also had Skyfall in the Novice who went well for 28 dressage and double clear - he will go Intermediate next week at Rockingham.
