Battle of the Boys Round 3
Cillnabradden Evo (Oliver Townend) v Upsilon (Tom Carlile)
These two combinations have faced each other twice in ERM history and have scored one win each. On both occasions the other finished in second, they haven't however faced each other since 2016
Gatcombe 2016 Cillnabradden Evo 1st, Upsilon 2nd
Blenheim 2016 Upsilon 1st, Cillnabradden Evo 2nd
There was little separating them either times and the battles were ultimately decided by the Dressage, will it be the same again this weekend? We're pretty sure whoever is in front will be hard to beat.
Cillnabradden Evo and Upsilon also both have the highest number of ERM podium finishes with 4 a piece, more than any other horse will both of them make it 5?
Upsilon also holds the record ERM Dressage (20.5) & finishing Score (21.6) from Barbury 2017 which was the last time we saw him in an ERM class...
There are three riders in the Arville field that are on 2 ERM wins. If either boy wins this weekend then they would make it 3 wins on the same horse. Gemma Tattersall could make it 3 wins on 3 different horses as she rides Chico Bella P here (Quicklook - Chatsworth 2017, Arctic Soul - Gatcombe 2017).
