Ogee has been raised to a mark of 136 after his win in Worcester last week. This is a real shame as it puts him above the 135 ceiling, and thus makes race planning very difficult as it rules out plenty of potential targets. Kikos has been dropped another lb to 113, every little helps, and E Major has slipped 4lbs to 118 which will make life a lot easier for him. Congratulations to the GB Showjumping Team who yesterday secured the Team Gold in Greenwich. A fantastic performance, that goes one better than the 1984 team who gained the silver medal, and were trained for the games by Peter Robeson. 'The Boss' is a true Olympian, having been in the squad, (but not making the team) for the 1948 Games, and was involved in every games up until Los Angeles - some record! Nick Skelton and Big Star seem to be the form duo in the competition and it looks like they will take all the beating in the individual event as well!!
