A great performance for the 11-year-old gelding Galtur (Cornet's stern x Baloubet du Rouet) ridden by William Whitaker, who finished 2nd in the CSI2* Grand Prix 1.45m last Monday, with just a millisecond difference. The gelding finished with a time of 40.34 seconds with only 0.08 second difference between him and  Faltic HB (Baltic VDL x Concorde) ridden by Eoin Gallagher. AES Approved stallion Faltic HB finished with a time of 40.26.

In the CSI2* Grand Prix five more AES horses jumped a clear round. The gelding Live the Life (Zanzibar V x Barons Royal Elegance) finished 7th with a time of 45.85. And the stallion Billy Guilder (Billy Congo x Cavalier Royale) finished 8th with a time of 46.53. Both also finished in the top 10 with a double clear round.
