t lunchtime, the CSI 5* riders took to the ring at the Gucci Paris Masters for the Trophée Salon du Cheval – Ceneca, a table A (1.50 m) competition with a jump-off.

Forty competitors lined up for battle. First up was home favourite Roger Yves Bost, winner of Friday evening’s Longines Speed Challenge, and he duly continued his fine run of form  by qualifying for the jump-off with his mare, Nikyta d’Elle. It was a similar story for the winner of Friday’s Prix GDE, Alvaro Afonso de Miranda Neto. The Brazilian, riding AD Rahmannshof’s Bogeno, sired by Baloubet du Rouet, also booked a place in the jump-off.

They were followed by ten more pairs: Rodrigo Pessoa (BRA)/Winsom, Denis Lynch (IRE)/Abbervail van het Dingeshof, Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS)/Guccio, Rolf-Goran Bengtsson (SWE)/Carusso LS la Silla, Simon Delestre (FRA)/Whisper, Grégory Wathelet (BEL)/Kronos d’Ouilly, Ben Maher (GBR)/Aristo Z, Marlon Zanotelli (BRE)/Madame Butterfly, Ludger Beerbaum (GER)/Gotha FRH 18 and Judy-Ann Melchior (BEL)/Carry Z.

Victory went to Simon Delestre, who posted the quickest time with his nine year old mare Whisper, going round in 34.02 seconds. Olympic team champion Ben Maher and his eight year old Aristo Z finished second with a time of 34.27 seconds, and Denis Lynch and Abbervail van het Dingeshof snatched third spot with a time of 35 seconds.
