Keith Shore lands a win in Lier
Keith Shore jumped to a win in a hotly-contended 2* 1.30/1.35m two-phase with Iron Lady Van’t Meulenhof in Lier, Belgium.
Eighty-seven contended this class but Keith found the shortest route by just a fraction on the 10-year-old Parco/Quidam De Revel mare, winning by just 0.02 sec. A steadier double clear from Amy Inglis on Every Way finished 19th.
Tom Whitaker finished eighth in the eight-strong jump-off of the 1.20m with the Catoo six-year-old Caretoo.
In Dunkerque, France, Tim Page rounded off a good show with his ride and drive winner Casanova 499 to take third in the accumulator on a maximum score. Thirty-two contended the accumulator with Tim and the promising Clarimo/Contender seven-year-old finishing 1.82 sec behind the winner.
Rose Moss jumped into third in the 1* 1.35m grand prix with the Billy Congo seven-year-old African Affair. No-one in the eight-strong decider managed to jump a clear with the top three all finishing on four faults and time deciding the result. Eight faults put Colin Keeling and ARD Spun Gold into seventh.
Four faults in round one of the 1.45m denied Rose a jump-off chance and Carlos F finished in 10th spot. France’s Mathieu Lambert topped the seven-strong decider on Airmes Des Baleines.
Winner of two classes earlier in the week, Joss Williams had to settle for sixth on the 16-year-old Zandokan Z in a fast 1.15m two-phase 0.84 sec off the pace. Colin Keeling was also double clear on the six-year-old Mistral V/D Roshoeve for 14th.
