Nicole Pavitt and Victor Blue take another world ranking class in Vilamoura


Nicole Pavitt landed another world-ranking 1.45m on Vilamoura’s Atlantic tour on the Dutch-bred My Bjorn W 14-year-old Victor Blue despite feeling under the weather. Joe Whitaker was hot on her heels with the Locarno daughter Lola V, just 0.24 in arrears for second. Emma Stoker eased Townhead Tallulah V into sixth in the hotly contended speed class, with Sammie-Jo Coffin in 10th on Willem De Lux.

Joe outran them all to take the 1.35m on the speedy Shearwater Upanda by the slenderest of margins, 0.03 sec. Nicole Pavitt eased Doucardi into sixth.

And Joe doubled up in the six-year-old, winning on the Handel sired Redhill Fanta by almost two sec. Brits bunched together in the lower places, Sammie-Jo Coffin was fifth on Catch The Pigeon, Nicole Pavitt took sixth on Xena 16 and Emma Stoker was seventh and eighth with Everton De Villee and Pembroke 3.

Jude Burgess laid claim to three of the top four five-year-old places, winning with the Tangelo Van De Zuuthoeve/Chin Chin mare Gimona and taking third and fourth with the German-bred mare Quite Feeling and Germates, a Warrant/Goodtimes mare. British-based Irishman Anthony Condon eased Gerko III Van De Zeilhoek into fifth. Emma Stoker was sixth and eighth with Vienna and Cool Cash, sandwiching Scarlette Norman into seventh on Flavie Van De Helle.

Tim Page took sixth in the 1.30m on Hi Midnight Millie with Amy Duncan tucked just behind in seventh on Adagio II. Emma Stoker netted fourth in the seven-year-old with Shelby and also took seventh on Dieg’Eau De Villee.
