The Brits are on fire in Lummen

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.
