Mark McAuley (IRL) and Valentino Tuiliere (Diamant de Semilly x Silvio) were first to go in Sunday's ‘Prix France Info – France Blue’ – a 1,50m accumulation jumping with joker – in Bordeaux, and held on to the lead all the way through the class. McAuley wasn't there to celebrate his win though, as he was already on the airport when the class finished to go home to his wife Charlotte Mordasini and their newborn baby. Congratulations to both!

McAuley finished with a time of 44,93 seconds, almost a second faster than runner-up Simon Delestre (FRA) with Filou Carlo Zimequest (Coronas x For Pleasure). Third place went to Michael Jung (GER) with FischerChelsea (Check In 2 x Argent) ahead of Jur Vrieling (NED) with Dallas VDL (Douglas x Heartbreaker) and Francois Jr Mathy (BEL) with Falco van de Clehoeve (Quickfeuer van Koekshof x Fellini).
