Lee Williams claimed the ride on Jenson 55 from partner Charlotte Platt to take seventh in the 2* 1.45/1.50m grand prix in Opglabbeek, Belgium.
The fifty starters provided just eight clears with Lee and the 10-year-old Verdi/Padinus stallion Jenson reurning on four faults in round two to drop to seventh spot. Brazil’s Bernardo Alves claimed victory on El Torreo De Muze with just 0.24 sec. Four faults in round one put Jack Whitaker and Arlo De Blondel into 20th.
Chloe Winchester jumped into third in the 61-strong 2* 1.40m speed with Charming Fellow Z, the nine-year-old Clinton stallion finishing 2.83 sec behind the pace. Christopher Frazer posted a much steadier clear for 21st on Cassata 4.

Fourteen of the 39 starters accessed the jump-off with Chloe making a determined effort on the Irish-bred 11-year-old but was a fraction in arrears for the runner-up spot. Claire Salem on Meteoor and Felix McCartney with Constakko Raa jumped steadier double clears for sixth and seventh.
