Adrian Whiteway is HOYS bound with Boavista Delsendam
Adrian Whiteway out-jumped all 110 in the Connollys Red Mills newcomer second round at Bicton to ensure he is HOYS-bound on Leonne George’s Boavista Delsendam.
Adrian only took the ride on the Berlin eight-year-old mid-April and the pair quickly gelled, finishing ninth in the recent newcomer second round at Wales and West.
There was no mistake at Bicton, and the pair raced ahead to secure the top spot in style in the nine-strong decider.
Donna Callaghan and the seven-year-old Wietvot/Ahorn stallion Freek VT Scharenborg missed out by one place in the Foxhunter second round just 48 hours earlier here. But they celebrated in style in the newcomers with the second qualifying place.
Only three treble clears were evident, and James Wilson drew the short straw, just missing out in third place on Gossip SA. On four faults in the final round was Kathryn Ellison taking fourth on Cherokee Bay and Angie Thompson filling fifth spot on Fremont VDL.
Harriet Nuttall landed the area trial and £1,000 first prize with the big-jumping Galway Bay Jed.
Harriet was in fine form here, winning on the Romanov II/Lux nine-year-old Jed and also taking third with her seasoned campaigner, the Irish 13-year-old A Touch Imperious. Keith Doyle was sandwiched into second on the Ard VDL Douglas/Harlequin Du Carel 11-year-old Harlequin Dunraven. Ben Bick claimed fourth on Zipiro ahead of Jane Annett in fifth on Chacco Gold and sixth-placed Justin Tuff with Idocus VD Bisschop.
Faye Adams claimed victory in the Stockdale 1.40m grand prix on Zozo CL to claim the £1,000 firt prize. Fifty-five initially tackled this class with Faye and the Marlon/Paladin Des Ifs 13-year-old Zozo outpacing all to win.
Keith again took second on Harlequin Dunraven ahead of Danielle Farnsworth in third aboard Claddagh Iroko. Andrew Williams guided Codar into fourth with Carron Nicol in fifth on Finnegan D and Kimberly White claimed sixth on Catapult.
Mark Edwards scored a hat-trick of wins. He landed a one-two in the 1.30m, heading the class on the Its The Business 12-year-old Its Showbusiness and taking second with the eight-year-old Greenvale Cara. Keith Doyle claimed third spot on Elmo Brown with Sammie Coffin in fourth aboard Boebka and Lucy Warren fifth on Deltina.
Mark doubled up with a discovery win on the Escudo I seven-year-old Eternal Evolution, beating Charlotte Tucker into second on Killy Ferro. James Trevatt took third on Enzo IV with Alice Watson fourth aboard Fiasco TH.
And Mark also topped the Foxhunter on the nine-year-old Harley H – already a double winner during this week.
Ruby Fryer galloped ahead to take the 1.30m Derby with the 10-year-old Hillcrest Amiro, outpacing Alice Watson and the Winningmood/Lys De Darmen nine-year-old In The Mood VHK and pushing them into second place. Helen West took third on Eebay with Grant Talbot fourth on Funny Boy II.
Stevie Jenkins headed the 1.25m and 1.20m with Willem M and Nolton Its Oscar and Leesa Long doubled up, taking the 1.10m on Tammys Girl and the 1.20m speed with Britannicus.
Matthew Hall was also a double winner, heading two newcomer classes aboard the Cassini Boy Jr eight-year-old Chanella and the Argentinus/Silvio I 10-year-old Fitz The Bill. Charlotte Addis had to settle for second on both occasions with the seven-year-old mare Kato Van De Mispelaere.
