Guy Williams rounded off St Lo, France, with a win and a second place. He had to settle for the runner-up spot in the concluding 2* 1.45m grand prix with Rouge De Ravel.
Fifty riders contended but only five produced the required round one clears to access the jump-off, Guy and the Ultimo Van Ter Moude 13-year-old again leaving all the fences intact to slot into second 2.56 sec behind the winner, France’s Axelle Lagoubie and Rubelia.
Winners earlier in the week, Guy made the final day a winning one with Igor Van De Dorpshoeve.
Twenty-eight contended the 1.35m speed but no-one was a match for an on-form Guy, and he sped ahead on the Kashmir Van Schuttershof 10-year-old to win by 0.63 sec. A steadier clear from British-based Frenchman Dan Delsart on the eight-year-old Gigolo Z claimed 11th place.
Jess Mendoza jumped into third place in the concluding 2* 1.45/1.50m in Lier, Belgium, with Sam De Bacon.
Sixteen of the 71 starters reached the jump-off with round one clears, Jess and the Kashmir Van Schuttershof 12-year-old Sam taking third 1.14 sec behind the winner, France’s Marie Hecart on Vahinee. Four faults in the jump-off dropped Joe Clee and Alzu Ohio to 14th.
Joe rode into 11th in the 76-strong 2* 1.30/1.35m two-phase with the Tyson seven-year-old Thunder G Z 3.66 sec off the pace.
And Jess also claimed 11th place in the 1* 1.20m with the Cobra 18 11-year-old Dublin.
In Madrid, Spain, Emily Moffitt was one of five to reach the jump-off of the 28-strong 2* 1.45m and returned the steadiest of the double clears to finish third on the Winningmood nine-year-old Winning Good 1.72 sec behind the winner.
Four faults in round one of the FEI world cup qualifier put Laura Renwick and Bintang out of contention and they finished 21st. Germany’s Daniel Deusser claimed victory on Tobago Z in the 10-horse decider with a 0.39 sec advantage over Switzerland’s Steve Guerdat and Ulysse Des Forets.
