Chloe Aston speeds to a win in Portugal
Chloe Aston was in racing form in the big class of the day in Vilamoura, Portugal, heading the 1.40m on reliable favourite Amigo T.
A mammoth 114 contended this 3* class with only 18 coming forward to the jump-off but none were a match for Chloe and she eased the Padinus 13-year-old Amigo into the top spot with 0.58 sec in hand.
Lulu Warren jumped double clear for seventh in the 3* 1.35m on Alex V/D Molen, the Ultimo 13-year-old finishing 1.48 sec behind the pace. George Whitaker was also penalty-free in the 59-strong two-phase for 10th on the seven-year-old Carthino Z mare Giranette.
Antonia Platt jumped into seventh in the 52-horse 1.30m two-phase with G Star Blue, the 11-year-old Mr Blue mare more than six sec off the pace. Annabelle Brown finished eighth on the Luidam seven-year-old Lissyegan Luise Royale with Anya Jackson ninth on Mr Tornado and James Wilson was also double clear on Gainesboro for 12th.
Brits filled three of the top five places of the 15-strong jump-off in the 1.20m, Victoria Hewson racing away with a 0.37 sec win on the Lancelot seven-year-old Zenas Flight. Louis Frost claimed second on the 10-year-old De Pokemon and Sarah Krisanda filled fifth spot on Donald Duck 37. Stacey Willsone was eighth on Cirrus and Ellie Guy posted clear and eight on Camorra Des Nonaines Z to take 14th.
The Brits were out in force in the 1.10m with the top three places. Arianna Kuligowski topped this speed with 2.29 sec in hand on the 12-year-old Coco Fino with Stacey in second on the Lucca 15-year-old Alsager and Jasmine Cain guided the V Alba 69 eight-year-old Fihilithya into third. Four faults dropped Will Lewis and E down to eighth just ahead of Michaela Wood in ninth on Lingala.
