THE Dy­namic B&C had the show’s clos­est fin­ish, with the top three — all from the grade C sec­tion — di­vided by just half a se­cond. The hon­ours went to Dan Del­sart af­ter a great round on Chicago Blue, with Kate Whi­taker’s sev­enyear-old Val De Vaux­elles Z and Michael Pot­ter on Ben Ma­her’s Di­ablo VII just be­hind.

Chicago Blue, by Chacco Blue, came from Michaela Webb as an un­tried six-year-old a year be­fore this show, af­ter Dan’s long-term liv­ery client Francesca Wignell de­cided to in­vest in two horses for him to ride.

“He’s also qual­i­fied for the Karma fi­nal and I think he’ll be a re­ally nice horse for this year’s seven-year-old qual­i­fiers,” as­sessed the pop­u­lar French in­ter­na­tional rider.

Dan was due to move to

Keysoe with 26 horses the fol­low­ing week­end.

“There are ex­cit­ing times ahead. I’m hop­ing to run clin­ics here, as well as work with my ex­ist­ing clients,” he said.

There were plenty of other good per­for­mances through­out the show. Satur­day’s 1.35m hon­ours went to a bril­liant round from Dale Burn­ham and the 11-year-old Ro­manella Gold, a mare back af­ter a long break and look­ing full of en­thu­si­asm here.

Lo­cal event rider Barry Menin­gen scored a dou­ble with his 19-year-old News For You, On­dine King also had two wins on her lit­tle mare Eliene I, Holly Broad (En­rico P) added two more red rosettes to Team Mincher’s tally and Adrian Speight had a win each day on a new ride, the sev­enyear-old PK Kel­ly­keen Us.
