Laura Renwick is placed with two talented in Gothenburg, and the world cup final hots up
In Gothenburg, Laura Renwick slotted MHS Washington into fourth with maximum points in the accumulator, won by Sweden’s Irma Karlsson on Balahe.
And Laura eased the Toulon/Le Tot De Semilly eight-year-old Ulievka de Breve into eighth with four faults in the 1.40m speed. Sweden’s Malin Baryard-Johnsson and H&M Cassius Clay won, with Ireland’s Denis Lynch third on Ho Go van de Padenborre.
Germany’s Christian Ahlmann headed the second leg of the Longines FEI world cup final with the Galoubet/Polydor 16-year-old Taloubet Z from Ireland’s Denis Lynch and the Argentinus 13-year-old All Star 5 – the only two to produce jump-off clears. The Netherlands’ Harrie Smoulders was in third on Emerald NOP, Switzerland’s Steve Guerdat took fourth on Corbinian and Germany’s Marcus Ehning on Cornado NRW was in fifth. A round one four faults dropped day one’s winner, France’s Penelope Leprevost to 18th with Vagabond de la Pomme.
After two legs, it puts reigning world champion Steve Guerdat in prime position with Marcus Ehning second and Harrie Smoulders standing in third with Germany’s Daniel Duesser. Belgium’s Nicola Philippaerts is in fifth and Penelope Leprevost stands in sixth spot with fellow French rider and world number one Simon Delestre and the USA’s Callan Solem. Germany’s Marco Kutscher is ninth and Christian Ahlmann and Denis Lynch are tied in 10th with the USA’s Peter Lutz.
