Ringwood Sky Boy (Ozzie) is like a fine wine… he just improves with age!  He knows the Burghley arena now and he trusts Tim implicitly and he gave a fine demonstration of keeping his nerves under control for a super test.  He even maintained a brief halt at the start!

He looked beautiful and was gleaming in the afternoon sun.  Tim must have been delighted with him and a score of 41 puts him in into 7th place, just 5 marks off the lead which is held by Sir Mark Todd and Leonidas.

Ozzie even dealt manfully with Matt Ryan scaring the living daylights out of him with his microphone on a stick and did not bolt back to the stables to escape it!

All to play for tomorrow with two lovely horses lying in the top 20..and Tim is the only rider with 2 rides to be in that position.
