Beth had a great start to the show with Zirina, winning the Foxhunter 2nd round – the jump-off was hotly contested, with Zirina winning by 1 second. Mercutio got his 2rd Newcomer double clear, and jumped his 1st Foxhunter with just 4 faults in the jump-off. Because he jumped so well Beth decided to put him in the Newcomer 2nd round on Sunday. Being a late entry he had to jump 1st – he was fantastic, finishing with just 4 faults. His owner Gerry Ward was there to see him, and everyone was very pleased with him. Vesuvius jumped 2nd Foxhunter double clear for next year. On Sunday Zirina jumped Newcomer 2nd round, but had the last fence down in the 2nd round. Mercutio got his 3rd Newcomer double clear. Vesuvius got a 3rd Foxhunter double clear, but unfortunately has won £1 too much to get a 4th to jump Foxhunter 2nd rounds next year. It’s the last European trial this weekend, as well as the John Whitaker International final at the Charles Stanley British Masters.
