Louise Saywell hits immediate form at Bury Farm


Louise Saywell commandeered the top spot of day one’s 1.40m at Bury Farm’s winter premier with James Hughes’ Casado/Landlord 11-year-old Cordalis 7.

Eight contended the jump-off, with Louise taking the win by 0.60 sec. Emily Hilton and the Billy Mexico/Cavalier Royale nine-year-old Milly On Air slotted into second place with Aimee Jones on Never Last in third. Rose Moss produced the final double clear on Carlos F for fourth. Nick Benterman and Canyon Volo provided the fastest time, but a costly rail dropped them to fifth.

Rose was in winning form in the 1.30m with the Rash R/Voltaire 14-year-old Weston, but had to share the top spot with Ben Walker and Di Cornish’s nine-year-old Carthino Z stallion Da Vinci V after dead-heating on time. Dale Burnham was more than two and a half seconds behind for third on Calinka III and also netted fourth spot with Deezie-Katine Weering. Rose also claimed fifth on Caliva.

Dale had started the day with a win in the newcomers on Genesis N, an Eldorado Van De Zeshoek six-year-old mare. Zoe Smith was just two hundredth of a second behind for second place on the Bodinus/Holland six-year-old Garcia Lente with Gemma Tattersall and Billy Shania in third. Harry Whall and Baloubet De Seguine claimed fourth with Sophie Wheeler and Don Isla fifth, just ahead of sixth-placed Callum Tusler and Indeed I Am.

James Wilson topped the B and C with the Singapore/Mermus R eight-year-old Eskola M, winning with a 1.25 sec margin. John Crippen eased the 10-year-old gelding Call Me Cash into second with Liane Smith third on Ferdi M. Emma-Jo Slater jumped into fourth place with Kim Barzilay’s Kimba Classic and Bumble Thomas took fifth aboard Aramis S.

Ben Walker claimed the 1.20m in his own right with Casall De Revel, a Casall/Quidam De Revel 13-year-old, holding onto his lead despite the late challenge from Zoe Smith on the Cinton/Renville 18-year-old Wyoming for second place. Florence Bellm took third on Chipie B F Z and Bryony Ward was fourth aboard Romalette.

Nick Benterman topped the Foxhunter on the nine-year-old mare Toulouse Volo, winning with more than three sec in hand. Ronnie Jones and the eight-year-old MHS Patrriot took second with Harry Whall and Kartago Van Den Bos third. Bryony also took fourth here with Figaro and Gemma Tattersall’s Billy Shania finished in fifth spot.

Florence Bellm galloped ahead on the Calvaro Z/Cruising 15-year-old Southbound in the 1.10m to win by 0.67 sec, beating Emma-Jo Slater into second on Kim Barzilay’s forever young 18-year-old Simply Billie Bunter. Emma Smith and Appeal took third with fourth awarded to Bumble Thomas and Eclips Van Erpekom.
