Oliver has a truly remarkable record at Burnham Market. He has now won the CIC3* class an astonishing nine times: in 2007 and 2009 on Flint Curtis; 2008 Coup de Coeur; 2010 Ashdale Cruise Master; 2012 Pepper Anne; 2 x 2014 when two sections were held, Black Tie and Armada; 2015 Mr Hiho – with Armada 0.2 of a penalty behind in second place.

This year Oliver not only won the class with Angela Hislop’s Cooley Master Class but took the runner up spot with Andrew Cawthray’s Note Worthy. This also means that he has bagged the first leg of the Shearwater Insurance Tri Star Grand Slam ~ just two more in the series to go 😉
The other horses also went well, with Lanfranco winning an open intermediate on his dressage score, Cillnabradden Evo runner up in the other OI, one place ahead of Cooley SRS. Both Ballaghmor Class and Ridire Dorcha collected 6th place rosettes in the CIC2* and OI respectively.
