Rhys Jones scores a win in the Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery Second Round at Aintree International Equestrian Centre

Aintree International Equestrian Centre in Liverpool proved to be a popular choice with riders as fifty-five combinations came forward to take on Ian Clark’s track, all aiming to jump the all-important treble clear to gain a qualifying ticket to the Nupafeed Senior Discovery Championship Final held at the British Showjumping National Championships at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire in August.

Fourteen of the initial starting field went through to the final jump-off but only eight could navigate their way across the course faultlessly. Wrexham based Rhys Jones came out on top with the Quidam De Revel sired six year-old Belgium bred mare No Limit V, owned by Colin Bevan.  They produced a treble clear in 35.16 seconds, the fastest time of the class and 2.34 seconds quicker than his nearest rival.

Rachael Connor piloted her own Juvenosa, a 5 year-old Dutch bred mare who has only been competing since November, into second place after crossing the line in 37.50 seconds whilst Georgia Hilton and Newtowns Discovery B, a 5 year-old German bred mare owned by Georgina Hilton whom Georgia had only competed once before the show, were close behind in third with a treble clear in 37.75 seconds.

Five others went on to produce treble clears resulting in a total of eight combinations now going forward to the Nupafeed Supplements Senior Discovery Championship Final.
