Louise Saywell (pictured with Gentleman) almost made it a double in Peelbergen, Kronenberg, The Netherlands. She won the 1* 1.30m speed, holding off the challenges of her 70 rivals to win at her first show with Carolus K DHI. The Indoctro/Gran Corrado 11-year-old claimed victory with 1.15 sec to spare. Leo Lamb jumped into ninth with Oldtown KC.
Louise finished second in the 39-horse seven-year-old 1.35m two-phase with Gentleman (Vigaro/Phin Phin) just 0.03 sec in arrears of the winning time. A steadier double clear from Graham Lovegrove on Stabalossa earned 17th spot.
One very frustrating time fault kept Louise and Golden Arrow OL out of the 24-strong jump-off of the 1.45m and they finished 25th. Germany’s David Will claimed the win on Cap 4 with 1.33 sec in hand over Ireland’s Bertram Allen aboard Izzy By Picobello.
Katie Pytches claimed fourth in the 79-horse 2* 1.35m speed on Jolie Fleur Van De Noordheuvel (Cassini II/Dollar Dela Pierre) 0.88 sec behind the winner. Chantelle Duggan eased the Iroko nine-year-old Copperwood into fifth with Georgia Lovett in sixth aboard the 10-year-old stallion What A Kaschin K.
Georgia eased Zidane VIII into fourth in the 41-strong 1* 1.20m, the Grosso Z 14-year-old finishing 1.13 sec off the pace in the 26-horse jump-off. Alice Donnelly claimed fifth on C.Gonda Z with Paul Bevan and new ride Winterfield in 11th just ahead of 12th-placed Leo Lamb and Kardentox Van Het Gevahof. Alex Somerville-Cotton was also double clear for 19th on NPS Dangerous.
Sam Hutton guided Grey Van De Castanoschans into seventh in the 56-horse 1.40m two-phase, the 12-year-old Clinton daughter 2.72 sec off the pace.
Sam jumped an easy clear in the 56-entry five and six-year-old 1.20/1.30m with the six-year-old Hurbie (Toulon/Coconut Grove) more than seven sec off the pace.
