Chloe Aston hits form in Lummen
Chloe Aston was on fire in Lummen, Belgium, taking a win, a second and a third.
She pushed the consistent Amigo T into second in the 60-strong 3* 1.45m grand prix qualifier, the Padinus 12-year-old relishing the gallop to finish 1.32 sec behind the winner, Belgium’s Patrik Spits on Jacobien Dwerse Hagen. Jamie Gornall picked up eighth on the 11-year-old Cartani stallion Christian 25 with British-based Irishman Peter Maloney in 10th aboard D’Atlantique Royale in the 15-strong decider.
Chloe jumped into third in the 1.45m grand prix qualifier section A on the Cornado I eight-year-old Cornado’s Boy RC. The pair finished just 0.32 sec behind the winner, Belgium’s Catherine van Roosbroeck on Shou D Ouilly in the 21-strong jump-off.
The on-form Chloe claimed victory in the medium tour 1.35m aboard the eight-year-old Lorelei Van Het Waterschoot Z (Lord Z/Parco). Eighteen contended the jump-off with Chloe taking the win with 0.98 sec in hand. Emma Stoker provided a steadier round on the seven-year-old Pembroke 3 (Perigueux/Quick Star) for eighth.
Peter Maloney was also in winning mode, heading the big tour 1.40m speed on the Andiamo 15-year-old Venoot with more than three sec to spare. Emma and the Cartani eight-year-old Townhead Ballulah jumped into eighth.
Emma picked up fifth in day one’s big tour 1.30m with the Monte Bellini eight-year-old Miss Moneypenny, finishing six and a half sec behind the pace.
