Janika Sprunger (SUI) and Bacardi VDL (Corland x Kannan) finished on top of Saturday’s 1.60m CSI5*-W Emirates Airline Dubai Grand Prix FEI Jumping World Cup. 

Only two riders went double clear over the Grand Prix course, and with a time of 49.96 seconds in round two Sprunger was almost 1.5 seconds faster than runner-up Paolo Paini (ITA) with Ottava Meraviglia di Ca’San G (For Pleasure x Caletto I). Third place went to Philipp Weisshaupt (GER) with Che Fantastica (Check In 2 x Pablo) after finishing the shortened course in 47.85 seconds, but with four faults. 

Linda Heed (SWE) and Jarvis van D Abelendreef (Nabab de Reve x Heartbreaker) ended fourth – also with four faults in the second round – followed by Mark McAuley (IRL) with Vivaldi du Theil (Quaprice Boimargot Quincy x For Pleasure), who finished on five faults after having one time penalty in the first round and four faults in the second.
