Damaris Scott and Lauren Bradley got things off to a great start with double clears in the starter stakes and 50cm classes. In the 60cm class Louise Burke, Dara Beth McLoone and Hannah Marie Slater kept up their consistent form with yet more clear round rosettes.

The 70 cm class was the largest of the day. Hannah Marie Slater was in action again and jumped a lovely clear round. Holly Beacon on Flora picked up her first clear round rosette of the day. Damaris Scott on Daisy were jumping out of their skins with some lovely jumps and got a well deserved clear round rosette.

The 80cm class saw Holly Beacon on Flora back in the arena for a great clear round. Jason DeWard on Nora had a sticky round but kept his nerve and picked up a clear round rosette. Debbie Ramsbottom on Just like Jake powered around the course and went clear her arms must have been several inches longer after her round.

In the 90cm class only 2 riders were clear Debbie Ramsbottom and Dara Beth McLoone both jumping well.

The competition will run for the next 3 Sundays with the final taking place on the 23rdFebruary. Riders must compete in 4 of the 7weeks to be eligible for the final.
