The 2023-edition of CSI5*-W A Coruña, Spain, hosts the 7th leg of the 2023/2024 Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ Western European League this weekend and the action at Casas Novas got underway with a British win in Friday's feature class – the CSI5*-W 1.50m Caixabank Trophy, which counted for the Longines Ranking Group B. 

Once again, it was Great Britain's Harry Charles – leading FEI U25 rider – and Billabong du Roumois (Mylord Carthago x Papillon Rouge, bred by Philippe Berthol) that snatched the win when stopping the clock on 55.64, pushing Julien Epaillard (FRA) and Cancun Torel Z (Cosinhus x Grannus, bred by Francois Xavier Guyard) down to the runner-up spot with their time of 56.03. 

Julien Anquetin (FRA), another speedy French rider, and Blood Diamond du Pont (Diamant de Semilly x Arpege Pierreville, bred by Matthieu Le Connetable) placed third in 56.42, while Jack Whitaker (GBR) and Equine America Valmy de la Lande (Mylord Carthago x Starter, bred by Jerome, Pierre & Angeline Leconte) finished fourth in 57.25, followed by Richard Howley (IRL) aboard Consulent de Prelet Z (Consulent Z x Fuego du Prelet, bred by Svo Trans Feka) in fifth in 57.95.
