Scott Brash claims a win in Oliva Nova

January 18, 2018

Scott Brash jumped straight to the top in the opening world ranking gold 1.45m at Oliva Nova on the MET tour, Spain, with Hello Mr President.

Thirty-three took part in this speed class with Scott producing a smooth, professional round we have come to expect from Britain’s number one, and he claimed victory by just 0.09 sec on the Comme D’Api JR nine-year-old. 

Laura Renwick was 14th after returning four faults on Bintang.

Scott also picked up fifth with a double clear in the seven-year-old on Hello Franklin (Billy Mexico/Goodtimes) to finish more than three sec behind the winning time.  Lauren Edwards was a second slower on the Kannan/Grandilot are Kesara to slot into sixth.  One time fault dropped Anna Wilks and La Force De Tamerville into 11th.

Steven Franks eased the Diamant De Semilly 14-year-old Abdul Aziz into second in the gold 1.40m speed in a fast class against 42 rivals.  They finished 0.85 sec behind victor Caio Carvalho Filho for Brazil on Cheindira.  Lauren claimed fourth on the Zirocco Blue VDL nine-year-old Ella Sandra G and Anna Wilks produced a much steadier clear on Undicci for 18th.  Max Routledge provided the fastest time of the class with more than a second in hand over the winner on Old Lodge’s Lord of Arabia, but a lowered rail put them in 23rd.

Steven jumped into second in the 71-strong silver 1.25m speed on the Quicksilver nine-year-old Amethyst, 1.72 sec behind the winner.  Kayleigh Watts also posted a clears on the eight-year-olds Colton Playtime and Kilbarron Blue for sixth and seventh.


Emma Stoker eased Everton De Villee into third in the gold 1.30m speed, Bob Young’s Arko/Darco eight-year-old finishing almost six sec behind the pace with an easy round in the 56-strong class.  Max Routledge also returned a clear on on the Baloubet Du Rouet/Voltaire eight-year-old Firkov Du Rouet for 13th.


Anna Wilks popped Cooper into third in the silver 1.35m speed, the Viento Uno W/Voltaire 10-year-old 3.76 sec in arrears of the winning time.


Brits filled three of the top four places in the six-year-old 1.25m two-phase, Lauren taking the win on Breit Star (Breitling LS/Sir Corland) with 1.83 sec in hand.  Emma guided the Ugano Sitte/Darco mare Gotha De Baudignies into second and also picked up fourth on Happynes (Eldorado Van De Zeshoek/Cicero Z Van Paemel). 

And Emma was also double clear in the five-year-old 1.15m with Illonois – bought at the Scope Festival in August after the Zambesi/Casanova gelding won the four-year-old final with Demi Watson.  The pair finished more than eight sec behind the winning time with an easy double clear.
