Speetley to Northallerton

Tom McEwen next stood in for Ros at Great Witchingham, where Rehy Royal Diamond had a steady run in the open intermediate, a couple of rails down and cross country time penalties keeping the pair out of the ribbons.

Tom then rode both Lordships Graffalo and No Excuse in the intermediate sections at Upton House. No Excuse was running hors concours and had a steady round, while Lordships Graffalo finished in the top 10 thanks to a, still reasonably steady, double clear.

Meanwhile Tom Jackson took Pencos Crown Jewel to Nunney, again for an open intermediate run where the mare jumped a steady double clear, and Richard Jones rode Grafics at Buckminster, hors concours in a novice section and also double clear.

At Skipton, Alex Postolowsky picked up a novice 6th and 12 place riding Lordships Parc Royale and Izilot DHI respectively, before going on to win a BE105 on Lordships Parc Royale at Northallerton.

Finally, Georgie Frow had another outing on DHI Jura at Speetley, finishing not far out of the ribbons.
