Chilli Morning all systems go for World Equestrian Games

William Fox-Pitt insists Chilli Morning is all systems go for the World Equestrian Games after giving the horse the weekend off.

Britain's world number one Fox-Pitt ended this weekend with two titles to his name, taking home the novice and intermediate crowns from the Festival of British Eventing.

Fox-Pitt followed up Saturday's victory with Top Biats in the novice section by guiding Luxury FH home at intermediate level, finishing ahead of Ian Wills (Say I Do), Tim Price (Bango) and Oliver Townend (Shearwater Touchingwood).

Fox-Pitt did not run his World Equestrian Games-bound Chilli Morning but he insists there is no need to panic.

"He (Chilli Morning) is in very good order," Fox-Pitt said.

"His performance in Aachen (last month) wasn't a world-beating one, but it was really useful preparation. I was never going to run him at Gatcombe after he went there."
