Piggy was in the enviable position of having eight talented horses to run in the open intermediate sections, not forgetting Brookfield Cavalier Cruise running at intermediate level where he finished 4th.

Dargun posted his third win on the trot, leading from pillar to post with his 22.1 dressage score. Marchwood almost made it two wins, narrowly pipped at the post for a second place.

Brookfield Inocent kept a clean sheet for a fourth place with Brookfield Quality fifth after collecting a smattering of time penalties. A rail down nudged Sportsfield Top Notch out of the top 10, three places ahead of Fonbherna Lancer in 14th.

Finally, Vanir Kamira and Cooley Lancer jumped very steady double clears.
