David Simpson takes the opening class at Bolesworth

British-based Irishman David Simpson kicked off the Bolesworth CSI4* in fine style. Only one class was scheduled for the opening day, and David clamed victory on the Unanaiem nine-year-old Unex Cognac IV in the 2* 1.45m, winning with a comfortable 1.73 sec margin.

A bunch of Brits claimed the lower placings, with Reece Oliver on his Northcote Stud grand prix winner Urlanmore Aldi in second. Emma Stoker and Bob Young’s Cartoon 11-year-old Townhead Campus took third with Theo Simpson in fourth on Touch Of Chilli. Paul Barker was in fifth on the Kannan nine-year-old Happy Boy and Jess Dimmock took sixth on the eight-year-old Cybel II.
