Hester had earlier won the Intermediaire II on Giorgione, who is owned by Dr and Mrs Wilfried Bechtolsheimer. He had also won the Prix St Georges and Intermediare I on his exciting new mount Limmat, with whom he is unbeaten in five competitions.
'That's another little ambition out of the way,' Hester said after winning every class at the three-day meeting. His principal goal this year is to achieve a score in the 1600s in an international Grand Prix. With Giorgione's basic work improved his target is not impossible.
