With only a handful of grand prix in her repertoire, Cinderella picked up her second high-performance blue on Sunday. "She's peaking really young," said Torres of the mare his daughter Andrea Torres Guerreiro purchased as a five-year old. "We started moving her up this year and she won her first grand prix just a few weeks ago. We couldn't be happier with how quickly she is finding success."

Ellen's compatriot Holly Gillot continued her superb form on Dougie Douglas (Ard Vdl Douglas x High Roller) to end third, with the fastest time of the class but on the expense of a rail down.
