ROWAN COPE and Arthur triumphed in the first hunt race of the 2020/21 season, making all the running over the Wynnstay hedges to see off 22 other competitors.
It was an eighth victory in these races over natural obstacles for ex-chaser Arthur, now 12, whose form figures since joining the Cope family read 111211F1121.
“He was foot-perfect; it was the dream ride,” said Rowan, joint-master of the Quorn.
