Tim Stockdale comes close, but is denied Sunshine tour grand prix victory by less than haf a sec


By the narrow margin of 0.38sec, Tim Stockdale was denied grand prix victory with the Thunder Van De Zuuthoeve 11-year-old mare Fleur De L’Aube (pictured), taking second to France’s Robert Bruel on Arsouilles Du Signeur on the Spanish sunshine tour, Vejer. Yazmin Pinchen brought her scopey 13-year-old stallion Van De Vivaldi into third in the four-horse decider. William Whitaker was considered very unlucky to post a jumping clear on Fandango, but incurred one costly time fault to drop to ninth.

Matt Sampson continued his winning streak after taking a double the previous day, and won the Big Tour C 1.45m on Perfect Rouge, a Papillon Rouge 13-year-old, with Jake Saywell in fourth on the Kannan/Indoctro 11-year-old Special K IV, who was bred by Claire McCarthy.

Shane Breen headed the Big Tour B1 1.40m on Silbermond, an eight-year-old stallion by Stakkato Gold, by more than a second, and Lance Whitehouse slotted the Diamant De Semilly/Nimmerdor 12-year-old Dior V Overis Z into third in another 1.40m class.

Mark Armstrong topped the Big Tour A 1.35m on the British-bred, Baloubet Du Rouet/Fedor 11-year-old Balougio III (pictured above), two sec ahead of Georgia Tame on Bolien.

And the Brits kept winning. Harriet Nuttall claimed the Big Tour A 1.30m on the Irish-bred Highland Cruiser II (pictured), a Cougar/Flagmount Diamond 15-year-old, taking the class by more than two sec over fellow Brit Abbie Crippen’s Vilka B.

Morgan Kent landed the Classic 1.40m Grand Prix with the Balou Du Rouet 10-year-old Westpoint Baros by 0.66 sec with fellow Brit Richard Barton in third on Donata, Sarah Lewis fourth on Doonaveeragh Emma and Alice Palmer (Fanadwest Dancer) in fifth.

Kayleigh Watts on Zantos II, a Solitair/Mermus R 12-year-old, and Ellie Hall-McAteer with the 15-year-old Kannan daughter Dazzle II claimed the top two in the Classic C 1.30m. And Ellie went on to win the Classic 1.10m on the 13-year-old Blush.
