Laura Renwick slotted Heliodor Hybris, a Diamant de Semilly nine-year-old, into second in the 5* accumulator at Glock’s 5* Horse Show, Austria, conceding the win to Italy’s Emanuele Gaudino on Inca’s Big Think by 0.91 sec. John Whitaker and the Cassini I 12-year-old Lord of Arabia were in contention but hit the Joker to drop down the order.

John’s daughter-in-law Kate Whitaker kept the British flag flying with a super win in the Glock’s amateur 1.35m final. She eased Eunomia, a Singapore seven-year-old, into the top spot by an amazing three sec.
And Elliott Gordon headed the 2* 1.40m speed on the Quinar/Cor De La Bryere 12-year-old, takng the win by 1.36 sec. Alexandra Thornton took sixth on Charielle in the 1.45m.
