Louise Saywell bounced into the top spot of the 1* grand prix with Feigtling in Kronenberg, The Netherlands.
Second in a 1.20m earlier in the week after a 10-month lay-off, the Chicago Z 14-year-old has quickly returned back to fighting form and stepped up to win this 45-horse 1.30/1.35m with a handsome 2.63 sec in hand in a 14-strong decider. Ashlee Harrison guided Atout Des Trambles into sixth with a steadier double clear and Alistair Hippisley Gatherum returned clear and four on G to take 11th spot.
Eoin Gallagher claimed victory in the 49-strong 1.35/1.40m final with Di Caprio. Thirteen came forward to the jump-off with British-based Irishman Eoin holding off all challenges on the Diarado/Cassini I eight-year-old stallion to win by 0.33 sec.
Louise eased Sharp Image into third place in the 2* 1.40m two-phase, the Calvados Z 10-year-old more than four sec behind the winner. Georgie Burchmore Eames was fractionally slower for fourth on the Lupicor 16-year-old Wilandri E in the 40-entry class.
And Louise picked up sixth in the 1* 1.30m on Arakan, the Arko/Randi nine-year-old finishing 3.04 sec behind the pace in the 31-strong two-phase.
Chad Fellows posted clear and four in the 2* grand prix on Confident of Victory to take 13th place. Portugal's Luciana Diniz took the win on Lennox in the 15-horse decider.
Paul Crago posted a double clear in the 33-entry five and six-year-old handicap to take seventh on Aycha Gde Z (Arko/Griseldi) more than five sec off the pace.
