Helen Mitchell secured victory in the final KBIS British novice second round of the season at Beacons Equestrian Centre in Carmarthenshire with Billy Spirit. Just six survived the first two rounds to access the jump-off with four treble clears claiming a finalist place at the National Championships at Stoneleigh in August.
And Helen claimed two of them – winning with the Animo/Billy Congo seven-year-old Billy Spirit by just 0.31 sec and taking fourth aboard Castleview Murphy, an Irish-bred eight-year-old she has ridden for two months.
Milli Cornock picked up second spot on Calcourt Qualvados, a Westpoint Quickfire/Calvados five-year-old she started in competition in March.
Pandora Bailey filled third place with Whispering Angel, a six-year-old Licosto daughter she has competed for 12 months.
NB: Qualifications will be updated pending grading of results.
