Facing an imposing novillada from Barcial, Jesus de la Calzada and Miguel Andrades showed different qualities and their ambition to make their way in the toreo. Mario Arruza's performance was more aesthetic than impactful.

The historic breeding of Barcial returned for the Céret novillada to celebrate the centenary of iron.

The lot, of an imposing size, received 19 pikes even if few novillos pushed with conviction on the horse and the picadors did not shine much in the execution of the suerte. Several Barcial showed qualities in the last tercio in the muleta of Jesus de la Calzada and Miguel Andrades.

An uninspired presidency

Unfortunately, many aficionados will regret the role played by the presidency, several decisions of which influenced the debates. Indeed, the palco listened to two severe broncas for having twice refused an ear to Jesus de la Calzada (justified refusal in the face of his second novillo because the petition was in the minority), imposed an additional unnecessary sting on the last toro (which may have impacted the brave's drop in speed at the end of faena) or sounded a warning when punishing the toro. An application as strict as it is unusual of the regulations.

Mario Azzura (silence and silence after two opinions) drew two beautiful series of natural facing a toro lacking transmission, rhythm and nobility on the right horn. His second Barcial, very badly stung by the rider, was slow to charge the novillero's muleta and put himself on the defensive from the start of the faena. A few aesthetic passes proved insufficient to connect with aficionados and two opinions ended up sounding after several failures with the sword.

An ear stolen from Jesus de la Calzada

After around twenty paseos during his first two dive temporadas, Jesus de la Calzada (vuelta after petition and vuelta after petition)honored his third contract of the year in France. Céret discovered a novillero with style and impressive cold courage. The volume and demands of Barcial did not weigh on the novillero from Salamanca who demonstrated an incredible aguante without ever moving a toe in moments of danger. Faced with his first Barcial, twisted on the left horn and lacking nobility, Jesus de la Calzada imposed himself with his aplomb to achieve four right-handed series all slowly with a proven artistic dimension. A slightly flat sword was enough to end the fight and the president refused an ear that was mostly requested by the public.

The Spaniard elegantly saluted his second Barcial with his cape, who was wearing imposing armour. Demonstrating bravery with the pike in all three encounters, the Barcial kept up a generous gallop during the faena. Jesus de la Calzada gave him the right distances to build a faena on both banks with the most beautiful effect. The sword was engaged but the positioning of the blade was not ideal. A minority petition was raised from the stands, certainly to compensate for the initial injustice, but the palco ignored it once again.

The personality and alegria of Miguel Andrades

Miguel Andrades (silence and vuelta) is part of that breed of novilleros that aficionados like for its variety in the three tercios, his alegria and his constant commitment and this will to make his way in the escalafon. Especially since the Spaniard has a real personality on the sand.

His first Barcial had a curious behavior when he entered the track and seemed to suffer from a vision problem. After causing danger to the horse, Miguel Andrades shone in the banderillas where he showed ease, commitment and variety. At the muleta, the brave man stopped completely and refused to lower his head into the muleta. A superb sword is to the credit of the novillero of Jerez de la Frontera.

Andrades did not give up his chance against the very good last novillo of Barcial which he welcomed a porta gayola (kneeling at the exit of the toril). Incomprehensibly, four encounters with the cavalry were imposed while the Barcial did not push the horse and the rider measured the punishment. Once again, Miguel Andrades shone in the banderillas with an extraordinary final pair executed in compromised terrain stuck to the boards.

The very embedded Barcial shone at the start of the faena and Andrades got into unison by starting on his knees. The first four series on both banks had a big impact before the novillo slowed down. After a sword of total sincerity, the blade was not perfectly positioned and the use of descabello caused him to lose a trophy.
