Helen Tredwell jumps into second in the world ranking class in Lier
Helen Tredwell jumped into second in the world ranking 1.45m in Lier, Belgium, with Sebastian VII.
Only seven of the 61 starters came forward to the jump-off after a fairly restrictive time caught out four riders. Helen had made no error there and urged Ann and Colin Garratt’s Unbelievable Darco/Animo 13-year-old Sebastian into the runner-up spot 2.07 sec behind the winner, Germany’s Hannes Ahlmann on Nerrado. Four faults dropped Joe Clayton and Cally V down to sixth and Robert Whitaker was also in the mix but eight faults put Cash Sent into seventh.
Bumble Thomas jumped to the top in the 64-strong 1.20m speed with Quantum Treat, the Canto/Quantum 13-year-old winning by 0.40 sec. Katy Ford was eighth on Future Contender just ahead of Helen Tredwell on NPS Erleena in ninth and Elizabeth Baker finished 14th on Birdy Du Thot. Steadier clears from Rachel Vicary’s Happy-Princess and Helen aboard Super Nova claimed 20th and 21st.
Bumble slotted Hauxwell into fifth in the 17-horse jump-off of the 1.10m 2.28 sec behind the winning time. Emma Rust jumped a steadier double clear for 11th on Nougat Des Sources.
Shane Breen eased the Chin Champ sired Be Con Champo into third in the 36-horse seven-year-old speed 1.88 sec behind the winner. Tamarin Christie was close for fourth on Heike (Zambesi/Calvados), Alex Hempleman filled 11th spot on Jalanna and Olivia Gent posted the steadiest of the clears for 15th on Chacco Star.
Olivia guided Kingdon (Don VHP Z/Hamilton III) into third in the 20-strong jump-off of the six-year-old 0.32 sec off the pace. Alex was 12th on Jammy Dodger and four faults dropped Helen Tredwell on Luikan down to 18th.
Gillian Anderson slotted Friday’s winner Congeniality B into sixth in the 38-entry 1.30m two-phase, the Memphis 12-year-old finishing almost three sec behind the pace. Gillian also took 14th on JJ’s Prince Chaccomo and Joe Clayton posted a double clear for 20th on Gwendolin.
Sarah Lewis steered Doonaveeragh Emma into 10th in the 2* 1.35m speed seven sec behind the pace. Tamarin took 14th on Ari De Kreisker and Alex Gill was also clear on Goldenstar for 17th in the 64-entry class.
