The second day of competition at the Longines Global Champions Tour - Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping kicked off with a blistering win in the CSI5* Prix Renault Mobility from Ben Maher (GBR) with Don Vito (Quaprice Z x Jus de Pomme) as temperatures rose in the French capital city. 

Set under the Eiffel Tower and with perfect blue skies, Maher took the 1.45/1.50m speed class win, finishing ahead of Leopold van Asten (NED) with VDL Groep Urane de Talma (Argentinus x Landor S), and Laura Kraut (USA) with Whitney (Indoctro x Concorde) who took second and third respectively. 

Speaking after his win, Maher said: “Don Vito is on form here, he likes Paris. I’m very lucky to have him this weekend. The final line saved me time, and I’m very happy with the way he jumped. I always have my own plan, but I watched Emily Moffitt - Don Vito is her horse - I went a little too quick but you never know how these classes are going to go. It was a good day in the office!”
