Millar managed to maintain his top place finish through three rounds of jumping between last evening and tonight, accumulating just one time fault in the process. Unlike Maynard, Millar entered the Championship as the odds-on favourite, the clear one-to-beat in the field of 23.

PenelopeNiceStephanie21Penelope Leprevost and Nice Stephanie are in top form at the moment. Photo by World of Showjumping.France's nr. one lady rider was leading the way in Verona on Friday, taking home the biggest five star win of the day. Aboard her faithful partner Nice Stephanie (Cardento x Ralme Z) – that also ended on top in Oslo three weeks ago – Penelope turned out to be unbeatable in the 1.55 Premio Prestige. Against twelve other riders, Penelope was by far the fastest one in the jump-off to take the top prize of 15 000 Euro.

 

Penelope came in early in the jump-off, and jumped another beautiful clear round. Getting a great turn from the second vertical to the third, and then back to the combination – she set the mare in top gear up on the stretch to the following oxer – cleared the next fence – and then went flat out towards the final vertical. When the clock stopped it showed a time of 37.69 and it looked very hard to beat.
