Diego Silveti In Madrid

David Silveti did not duplicate his triumph from last year in this year's presentation of San Isidro, but still had some moments of great ability. The manso bulls provided few times of opportunity for Silveti or his Spanish alternates.

With his first bull, Silveti heard oles for various muletazos, but killed badly with three pinchazos and two descabello jabs.

Silveti tried to save the day with the last bull of the afternoon, especially during the faena, to the point where he took a hard tossing and was nearly gored. After returning to the offending  animal, he delivered manoletinas and went in to kill. Unfortunately, he missed with the sword again and was limited to applause.
