Leprevost had to settle for second on Sultane des Ibis (Quidam De Revel x Elan De La Cour *HN), while third went to another French rider – Jerome Hurel on Ohm du Ponthual (Voltaire x Calypso d'Herbiers).

MonetaHIUBHSThe winners - Luca Maria Moneta and Connery. Photo Satu Pirinen.Friday's biggest class at the Helsinki International UB Horse Show was a tight affair. Out of 46 riders 20 managed to produce clear rounds, and the top four finished within 13 hundreths of a second. The fastest of them was Luca Maria Moneta from Italy with Connery (Cordobes II x Polydor).


"I am very pleased with my horse Connery. He has gotten older and knows his job better. Earlier he was too much in a hurry: if I let him go, he was too excited and not really careful with what he was doing. Now, he finally knows his job and fights for me against the fences. It's nice because I can let him do the job and it is very easy for me," Moneta said after his win.

Quotes after the Longines FEI World Cup in Oslo

JurStanding"It’s the first World Cup I win and also the first World Cup start for Zirocco," Jur told the press after his win in Oslo Photo by World of Showjumping. The winner Jur Vrieling on winning the opening leg of the Western European League Longines FEI World Cup; “It was really good. It’s the first World Cup I win and also the first World Cup start for Zirocco. A start like this is amazing. The course designers did a good job. It was heavy and technical enough, but it was not crazy. The horses did not have to stretch too crazy so it was a good start to the season. For me Zirocco jumped really good. I was a bit nervous to have Marco Kutscher behind me, he is my idol. I watched his first round and it was so beautiful, I knew he was going to beat me. But now when he was 0,7 seconds slower than me today I like him even more..”


Marco Kutscher on his plan for the jump-off going in last; “My horse Cornet’s Cristallo is very fast if he is in a jump-off. I saw the other jump-offs and they were going faster and faster. Jur was the only rider choosing the option to go on five strides down to the last oxer. My plan was to do that as well, but I came too close to the second last fence and I thought it would get too long so I decided to do the six strides instead. Either way I am really happy with my result because it is already a few months since I last could go to a press conference. It is a good start for me especially because I can not choose what World Cup shows I go to. Now I got some points and I will have the chance to get to ride more World Cups - so a good day for me.”

Photo by World of Showjumping.Sunday morning's 1.45 class in Oslo sponsored by Kingsland went to Brazil and Ashford Farm's Marlon Modolo Zanotelli. Riding Vera (Contender x Corrado II), Marlon had the difficult task of being first to go in the jump-off – but his very fast clear round in 34.22 seconds would prove impossible to beat as one rider after the other tried to catch him. Closest came Ireland's Cameron Hanley on Caretina de Joter (Caretino x Contender), who also was double clear with a time of 34.90. Another Irish rider followed in third; Shane Breen ended his jump-off in a time of 35.46 seconds on Farao van't Vennehof (Triomphe de Muze x Sun Light van de Zuuthoev).
