Marcus Ehning is not the only one to record a GP win this weekend; Ben Maher won the three star Grand Prix at Outdoor Gelderland in the Netherlands today. The stylish British rider won the class on Silver Exchange II (Landjunge x Lavallo). The two were double clear, and just fractions faster than US rider Lauren Hough on Quick Study (Quick Star x What a Joy) in the jump-off. Albert Voorn on Tobalio ended third –also they double clear.
At the four star show in Bourg-en-Bresse, France, it was Australia’s James Paterson-Robinson on Lanosso (Lancino de I x Grosso Z) that won the Grand Prix. James had one of only two double clears in this class, and was by far the fastest one in the jump-off – beating runner- up William Funnel on Billy Angelo (Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve x Kroongraf) with more than two seconds. Eiken Sato ended third on Lillyfee (Limbus x Carthago) with one down in the jump-off.
The three star Grand Prix in Franconville, France, was won by French veteran Eric Navet on Colombo van den Blauwaert (Nabab de Reve x Skippy II). It was only Navet and his team mate Julien Epaillard that were double clear in the class, but Julien’s time on No Name de Siva (Cumano x Odin de la CenseI could not match that of Eric – the pair was more than four seconds behind. Eugine Angot wa third on Old Chap Tame (Carthago x Quidam de Revel) with two time faults.
