Izzy Taylor had a remarkable day topping the leaderboard of three sections riding Tregolls, Impromptu II and Direct Tullyoran Cruise.

Proving to be lucky hunting ground after their win at The Festival of British Eventing, Ben Hobday and Shadow Man II clinched a strong OI section with a classy double clear. Tom McEwen also took a win on home turf riding Royal Roxey among other top ten placings on BGS Class Affair and Figaro Van Het Broekxhof.
