Henrik von Eckermann (SWE) won Friday’s CSI5* 1.55m class with a jump-off at Hubside Jumping in Grimaud, riding Peter Pan (Perigueux x Escudo 19). The runner-up position went to Paris Sellon (USA) and Cassandra (Caressini L x Cardento), that were 0.48 seconds behind von Eckermann on the clock – while home rider Olivier Robert (FRA) and Vivaldi des Meneaux (Chippendale Z x Bamako) ended third. Niels Bruynseels (BEL) with Frenchy Vds (Cornet Obolensky x Quidam de Revel) finished fourth, and Edward Levy (FRA) with Uno de Cerisy (Open Up Semilly x Siego) fifth. 

“Peter Pan has been in a really good shape for the last three weeks and is jumping wonderfully well,” von Eckermann said after his win. “He is a very fast horse, especially in the turns. I’m very happy with him.”

“In the jump-off, I thought that we could be faster than Paris. Not only because I always put in my head that I can win, I am a competitor at heart, but also because of the jump-off course – I knew that my horse could be quicker in the turns. Peter Pan is unbelievable and if I just lean a little bit, he will turn very tight. To the last fence, which was normally eight strides, we did seven and that always helps. Peter Pan is not just very fast, he is also very brave, and it was no problem for him to approach the last jump. I didn’t have to hold him back, on the contrary; I kept going forward with the movement. This is where he is at his best, when the rider lets him go.” 

Earlier in the day, Scott Brash (GBR) won the 1.50m class with Hello Shelby (Stolzenberg x For Pleasure) ahead of Julien Epaillard (FRA) with Usual Suspect d’Auge (Jarnac x Papillon Rouge) and Jessica Springsteen (USA) with Rmf Tinkerbell (Incolor x Argentinus).
