Photo by Stefano Grasso/LGCT.Emilie Martinsen (DEN) and Pacome Des Plains won the opening class of Longines Global Champions Tour of Chantilly by just 0.07s from Alexis Borrin (FRA) and Ruby de la Fosse in 2nd. Jane Richard Philips (SUI) and Pablo de Virton took 3rd. Only six riders jumped clear in the introductory class of the show as riders familiarised themselves with the huge grass arena ahead of the feature Grand Prix tomorrow afternoon.

This weekend's course designer, Uliano Vezzani, built an inviting course utilising every part of the expansive arena which sits overlooked by the beautiful Chateau Chantilly. Riders hoping to claim maximum points in the ninth round of the 2014 Championship took advantage of the opportunity to show their Grand Prix horses around this spectacular venue, where tomorrow the stands will be packed with the knowledgable and enthusiastic equestrian French crowd.
