Oliver’s rides ranged from BE100 to open intermediate last weekend. The Lincolnshire show ground was its usual chilly self but that didn’t discourage the horses, Oliver posting a win, two 2nds and a 4th.

ODT Ghareeb finished on his first phase score to win an OI, with Dunbeau three places behind after rolling a pole. Sandiman also kept a clean sheet for an OI runner up spot.
Khoi Traveler was the remaining ribbon winner, runner up in a novice section on the pair’s first outing together. There would have been more prizes but Oliver was keeping his foot off the accelerator so close to the start of the season.
