Brits were on top form in Lummen, Belgium, with Guy Williams, Chloe Aston and Graham Gillespie all posting wins.
Guy claimed victory in the 3* 1.45m section A grand prix qualifier on Titus. The Lancelot 17-year-old was quick off the mark in the 12-strong decider, finishing with 1.40 sec in hand.
Derek McCoppin jumped into third on the Indoctro 13-year-old Zaire one and a half sec behind Guy, and British-based Angelie von Essen, riding for Sweden, took fifth on the Converter 11-year-old Newton Abbot. Ireland’s Richard Howley posted a very quick time on the Tygo 10-year-old Chinook, but four faults dropped them to eighth.
Chloe Aston forged ahead in the section B 1.45m on the Padinus 12-year-old Amigo T to take a 0.13 sec victory from Guy in second on the Ultimo van ter Moude 12-year-old Rouge de Ravel. Graham Gillespie eased the 10-year-old Celine (Calvaro Z/Heartbreaker) into fourth place.
Graham Gillespie topped the 1.40m aboard Laverin de Saar. Sixteen of 40 reached the jump-off, with Graham taking charge to win on the Lavarin/Testarossa 13-year-old by 0.66 sec. Guy claimed fifth aboard the 15-year-old Casper de Muze and James Davenport rode the eight-year-old Caluna Z (Casall/Oklund) into sixth.
Morgan Kent jumped into fifth place in the 1.35m on the Centauer Z eight-year-old Cendara de Mies, four faults in the eight-strong jump-off pushing them down the order. James was right behind in fifth on the Cardento eight-yearold Evita and Joe Clee took sixth aboard Ferrari.
Emma Stoker guided Miss Moneypenny into fourth in the 3* 1.30m. Only five reached the jump-off with eight faults dropping the eight-year-old mare down the line.
