Oliver had a successful day at Eland, with all five of his rides picking up placings.
Innislusky Paddy provided a win, claiming a novice section thanks to a double clear. Both Sligo Candyman and Miss Cooley filled runner up spots, in a BE100 and novice respectively – but for a rail down, Miss Cooley would also have been a winner. Meanwhile, this was Sligo Candyman’s first affiliated run so Oliver was delighted with his double clear.
Finally, both Malteser du Carel and Nelson de la Pomme placed 8th, at novice and BE100. Nelson de la Pomme added just 0.4 of a cross country time penalty to his first phase score, whilst Malteser du Carel was a little careless in the showjumping after which Oliver took it steady across country.
