Brits ruled in their home city of London and while Ben Maher reigned supreme in the 5* classes, his fellow British riders also dominated the 2* classes with Lily Freeman-Attwood stepping up to the place in the main 2* class, the 1.40/1.45m.
Forty-eight contended this speed class but Lily had the win sewn up on the consistent nine-year-old Karibou Horta, flying ahead to take victory by an impressive 2.33 sec. Brits filled the top four places with Flo Norris in second on the Quasimodo Z 11-year-old Donatella L’Espoir.
Tim Gredley slotted the Nonstop 11-year-old Ninkie De Vy Z into third and Jay Halim took fourth with the eight-year-old Aragon Z. Mark Armstrong was also clear on Fabienne and Juharah to take sixth and eighth.
Flo came to the fore in the 36-strong 1.30m with Kadence Van’t Lozerhof, the Kashmir Van Schuttershof nine-year-old securing the top spot by just 0.16 sec over fellow Brit Tess Carmichael on the Chin Chin 10-year-old Bangle SR.
Jay finished fifth this time on Abrisco just ahead of Tim with Unex Arantos and Nina Barbour filled seventh spot on Douglas Delight.
The British claimed the top three places of the 1.15m with Alena Hughes taking the top spot on the Cato Z/Pouchka III 15-year-old Rainbow. Twenty tackled this speed class with Alena confidently forging ahead and into victory by 0.84 sec.
Ellie Burrell-Squibb has quickly got to grips with new ride Jordan Girl Z and slipped the Haarlem 15-year-old into second spot and Charlotte Lee steered Zarina into third. Georgina Round on Gusto and Clare Harris with Vinny also posted clear rounds for sixth and seventh.
