Louise Saywell is fifth in Vimeiro and Mark Bunting is in the frame in Zuidwolde's world ranking
In Vimeiro’s world ranking 1.45m, Louise Saywell posted a double clear for fifth in the 18-strong jump-off. Philip Spivey jumped Darya I Nur for clear and four to take 13th.
In Holland, Mark Bunting jumped into fourth in Zuidwolden’s world ranking 1.45m Grand Prix with Eurohill’s Alcatraz.
Eleven of the 50 starters accessed the jump-off with Mark posting the slowest of the double clears on the Heartbreaker/Polydox 11-year-old Alcatraz for fourth, four sec behind the winner. The USA’s Madison Goetzmann took the win with Wrigley.
Four faults in the jump-off proved costly for Spencer Roe and Wonder Why. The pair dropped from a possible second to fifth. James Billington and the Cartani stallion VDL Cartello returned four faults in round one for 22nd.
John Popely took 14th on the Mr Blue/Emilion seven-yearold mare Elite RV in the Bronze 1.25m final with a clear and four.
Four in the first round of the six-year-old dropped James Billington into 17th on the Bugatti VDL/Chin Chin gelding VDL Friso SMH.
And in Hasselt, Belgium, Dale Burnham and the Romanov daughter Romanella Gold had just four faults in the world ranking 1.45/1.50m grand prix for 17th, but was thrilled how this nine-year-old has stepped up to this level. Only four reached the jump-off with Belgium’s Frederik Cattebeke taking the win on Caesar.
