Stats: age 49, Devon, England.
Fernhill Urco: gr. g., 16.1 hands, 10 years, Portuguese-bred Portuguese Sport Horse (Corrado-Fly—Orli, Rollon Des Malais), owned by Sue and Edwin Davies.
Last year, this pair was seventh in the CIC*** at Blenheim (England), third in the CIC*** at Belton (England) and ninth in the Chatsworth CIC*** (England). They were 13th in the Boekelo CCI*** (the Netherlands).
Jimmy’s Prediction: Mary should also go well here with this horse, however, they have not shown the results yet to suggest that they can score their way to a top placing this time.
Kings Temptress: b. m., 16.1 hands, 11 years, British-bred (Primitive Rising—Kings Mistress, Lousella Inschallah), owned by Derek Rostron Baden.
Last year, they were seventh at the Burghley CCI**** (England) and completed the Luhmühlen CCI*** (Germany). They were also 18th at Burghley and fourth at Luhmühlen in 2009.
Jimmy’s Prediction: I have not seen Kings Temptress go with Mary King. However, their previous results are good, and we should expect another sparkling performance from Mary this weekend. Based on their prior record, they will finish just outside the top 10.
