Jay Halim is in winning mode on day one at Opglabbeek

Britain took the top two places in the section A 1.30m on day one at Opglabbeek, Belgium. Jay Halim claimed the top spot on new ride of one week KL Leona, a 10-year-old mare owned by Bob and Gillian Livock, winning by 0.19 sec.

“I was only going for a steady clear but she’s as competitive as I am,” said Jay.

Rose Moss slotted the Rash R/Voltaire 14-year-old Weston into second and also took eighth with the nine-year-old Calido daughter Caliva. Charlotte Platt on Flawless and Jenson 55 finished on two time faults with each to drop down the line.

In the section B 1.30m, Sam Hutton took 10th on the Sandro Boy/Calido 12-year-old Wicked Crush, almost seven sec behind the winner. And Sam also picked up 16th on Elyah Lalan. Lee Williams finished on one time fault with Salvador.

Jay jumped into fifth with KL Mac in the six-year-old, three sec behind the winner. Rose was also double clear on the Billy Congo sired African Affair for 10th spot.

Joe Clee gave Elize an easy round in the seven-year-old to take 16th place, and Sam Hutton also returned a clean sheet with Florida van Maarle for 19th. Charlotte Platt and TJ Dynamic came home on two time faults in the second phase to finish 25th, and Rose Moss (Quick Quintender), Lee Williams (Balulu) and Charlotte on Rumbolds Starlight all finished on six faults.
