Jonathan Dixon is in the money in Kronenberg


In Kronenberg, Holland, Jonathan Dixon jumped into fourth place in the 2* 1.35m on Camona, the 10-year-old Vleut/Animo mare finishing 1.96 sec behind the winning time.

Alex Barr outpaced his 44 rivals to top the 1* 1.20m with the Unbelievable Darco/Rastell eight-year-old Darco Diva, winning with one second in hand.

Jonathan claimed sixth in the 1.30m section B with the Diamant de Semilly 10-year-old Zaligra H, 2.75 sec behind the winning time. But clear and four in the 2* 1.40m put Jonathan and Gantico into 14th spot.

Paul Bevan and consistent clear round jumper Coco Vittorio (Vittorio/Voltaire) again provided a clean sheet in the 1.30m section A to take eighth, four sec behind the winner in the 52-strong class.

Four faults in the 16-strong jump-off of the young horse 1.25/1.35m put Annabel Shields in 11th on the Zenith/Chellano Z seven-year-old Rubin VHS, dropping from a possible second place. Nick Benterman and Chaccarino finished 16th.

In Cagnes-sur-Mer, France, a double clear in the 1.40m earned Shane Breen and the Wittinger daughter Danique seventh place, the pair finishing 1.82 sec behind the winner.

A clear in the first half of the 1.45m two-phase put Louise Saywell in the running, but a rail on the floor in the second phase dropped her and Crodalis 7 down to 13th in the 49-strong class. Shane posted four and one time fault for 21st on CSF Vendi Cruise.

Four faults in the under 25 1.40m speed dropped Georgia Tame and Clyde VA down to 15th place.
