Louise Whitaker battles to a win in Lier

December 14, 2018

Brits were on form in the 1.40m at Lier, Belgium, filling the top three places. 

Louise Whitaker eased Brendon Stud’s home-bred Special Warrior in to the top spot in this two-phase class, winning on the Warrior/Caretino Glory eight-year-old with 1.46 sec to spare.  James Smith slotted the Kannan/Cumano 11-year-old Twix De La Roque into second and Chad Fellows claimed third on the Cornet Obolensky `4-year-old Confident of Victory.  Chloe Winchester finished sixth on Clayton 31 and Lee Williams returned the steadiest of the double clears in this 74-horse class to take 15th on Salvador. 

 

Four faults in the jump-off of the 100-entry world ranking 1.45m dropped Brits down the line.  Lee was just 0.02 sec behind the winner on the eight-year-old Balou Du Rouet/Guidam mare Balulu but a rail down put him into fifth and Joe Clayton claimed seventh on the eight-year-old Crak De Beaurepaire Z in the eight-horse decider.

 

Joe jumped a steady clear in the 71-strong 2* 1.35m speed to take 17th on the Azteca VDL eight-year-old Franka Trichta 13 sec off the pace.

Steady clears in the seven-year-old speed from William Whitaker on Liarada S and Olivia Gillespie with Diarados Black Diamond for 16th and 19th places.
