Scott Brash is continuing his good form and is currently in third place in the FEI World Cup league.
The pair came fifth in the opening round last weekend and jumped a double clear at Helsinki yesterday (21 October) to take the fourth spot in the second leg. William Funnell, who also jumped a double clear with Billy Angelo, came fifth.
Scott tweeted after his win: "Am happy. He went great."
Taking the top spot was Roger Yves Bost from France riding Castle Forbes Myrtille Paulois, while third place went to Spain’s Sergio Alvarez Moya. He was riding Carlo, a ride he recently took over from Nick Skelton who is owned by Beverley Widdowson.
After the first two classes in the 12-leg league, Scott is in third place and William is in fourth. The name currently at the top of the leaderboard is Jeroen Dubbeldam from Holland, although at this early stage the competition is wide open.
The next event is at Lyon on 4 November, which will be followed by Verona in Italy on 11 November. The final world cup will be held in Holland on 17 March.
At the Helsinki international show Scott also came eighth in the grand prix on the Saturday (20 October) with Hello Sanctos, and second in another five-star class on the same night riding Bon Ami.
"Bon Ami held first place for ages, but was relegated to second place by less than one second in the class this evening," Scott said on his Twitter page, which he only started last week.
