Cian's two top mounts Blue Loyd and KEC Alligator Alley (right) had another successful weekend at WEF in Florida and are set to make an impression in the final showdown next week.
Cian took Blue Loyd to a new show in Ocala about four hours north of Wellington.
He commented: "It was so nice and was set in a country estate. Loyd won the welcome stakes on Friday and had a fence off in the Grand Prix.
It was nice to take him to another ring and freshen up. He feels in great shape and i'm really looking forward to jumping him next Saturday night in the $500,000 Grand Prix final at Wellington".
“KEC Alligator Alley is certainly not showing any signs of fatigue following this long circuit and is in fact going better and better. In Sunday's 1m50 he put in another great show to finish third behind Scott Brash and Ben Maher. Ballymore Eustace won the 1.35m jump off class on Thursday and is improving all the time.”
