William Funnell is denied a win in Denmark
Brits filled four of the top six places in the 3* 1.50m in 1.50m speed in Uggerhalne, Denmark, but they still missed out on a win. William Funnell was 1.15 sec off winning with the 14-year-old Billy Angelo (Tangelo Van de Zuuthoeve/Kroongraaf) and had to settle for second place.
Louise Saywell eased Billy Twomey’s Luidam eight-year-old Pewit Nono into third. Keith Shore jumped into fifth with his impressive new ride Hermes and Jamie Wingrove claimed sixth on Helen Rees’ Lord Z 11-year-old Bart VI.
Louise topped the young horse grand prix with Billy Twomey’s promising Moneybroom Dancer. Half of the 36 starters contended the jump-off, with Louise and the Je T’Aime Flamenco/Ekstein gelding taking the win by 1.60 sec. Julie Andrews was also double clear on Billy Cointreau for ninth.
Brits featured in the 1.35m speed, but none could catch the winner, Denmark’s Christian Petersen on Zahr Alfarvad Z, who raced ahead to win with a sec to spare. Winners yesterday, Keith Shore and the 15-year-old Coriander Van’t Vennehof had to settle for second on this occasion. Matt Sampson eased Roi into fourth with Julie Andrews in fifth on Senator CC Catch II.
