Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Qualifier at The Royal Norfolk Show
Tuesday 03 July 2012
The fifth Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C qualifying competition took place last week (Wednesday 27th June 2012) at The Royal Norfolk Show 2012 in Norwich, Norfolk. The class attracted 38 eligible starting combinations, all hoping to claim their direct qualification into the Championship Final.
The Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C qualifier was a key part of The Royal Norfolk Show and the class saw riders gather from all over the country with the aim of qualifying for the Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Championship, which will be held at the Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) on Sunday 7th October 2012.
From the total number of starters, 18 combinations went clear in the first round over the 14 fences to make it through to the final jump off. With only three direct qualifying places available, all of the remaining combinations were hoping to produce a double clear to put them in contention for Championship Final qualification. From the 18 combinations that went through to the jump off, five managed to produce the all important double clear, meaning that the allocation of the three direct qualifying places went down to the times.
The overall winner of the qualifier was 47-year-old Tim Davies from Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk and he won the class on board Jessica Tillett’s seven-year-old black gelding, Alure III. Tim and Alure III were the only combination to go clear in under 37.60 seconds and their time secured them the win and their place in the Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Championship Final.
Second place went to 33-year-old Helen Tredwell from Finmere, Buckinghamshire. Helen rode eight-year-old liver chestnut mare, Concordia II, owned by Philip Tuckwell. Helen produced her double clear in a time of only 38.33 seconds to secure her place in the Speedi-Beet HOYS Grade C Championship Final.
The combination in third place took the last direct qualifying place and this spot was filled by 23-year-old Tim Page from Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk. Tim produced his double clear in a time of 38.37 seconds aboard Steady the Helm, a seven-year-old bay gelding owned by William Stewart.
