Bunn Leisure Trophy joy for Shrewley's Robert Smith

SHREWLEY’s Robert Smith won the The Bunn Leisure Trophy at Hickstead last Thursday.

Smith was fourth to go and set off with every intention of going for the win with the ten-year-old Ilton, owned by Robert and Karina Reily.

Guy Williams was the only one to beat him for time on Rouge De Ravel, but he lowered a rail to drop down the order, leaving Robert in the top spot.

He said: “I knew they’d have to run to catch him. I kept everything very tight and he’s pretty quick across the ground.

“My aim for him is the King’s Cup. It’s a big ask but he’s got a chance.

“He’s never seen a lot of those fences before but nothing much fazes him.”
