Richard Howley wins again in Mijas


He did it again! Richard Howley has enjoyed a mega show on the Costa del Sol tour, Mijas, and Saturday was no exception. He eased Dienna into the top spot of the Premium 1.40m accumulator by a huge margin. Expertly guiding the Vaillant/Numero Uno eight-year-old into the top spot, Richard claimed victory by more than nine sec from second placed Johnny Pals, riding Captain Cooper for the Netherlands.

Half a second denied Alex Gill a win in the Master 1.30m on the Billy Mexico/Billy Congo seven-year-old Billy Salsa, and they had to settle for second behind Spain’s Jose Antonio Garcia Diana on Belia. Victoria Shanks took ninth on Ceross Z and Peter Charles slotted Foline into 10th, both coming home on clear and four.

Steven Franks was best Brit in the Master 1.40m, but four faults in round one on Abdul Aziz denied him a jump-off chance and dropped him to 15th. James Smith also jumped for four faults on Balibu. Ireland’s Michael Pender won the 10-horse decider on Cordanos V.

Ireland’s Marion Hughes topped the Master 1.35m on the consistent Heritage HHS Fortuna with almost a second in hand. Adrian Whiteway was best of the British, but four faults on Cojack dropped him to 16th with Daisy Davis on Anatar II in 21st.

Lara Whiteway claimed a win in the Premium 1.20m on the Indoctro nine-year-old Cavalia WH, winning with just over a second in hand. Honor Draycott guided Lux De Lux into third with Julie Slade fifth on Billy Angelo. Skye Klein took fourth in the 1.10m with Heavy C.

Laura Robinson jumped a steady clear for 10th in the Premium 1.30m speed on Rearcross Quality Cruize.
