A rare dead heat left Ireland's Billy Twomey, on Anastasia, and Britain's Guy Williams, on Loro Piana Hamlet, as joint winners of yesterday's Land Rover Grade A Jumping at the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Both finished clear in the jump-off in the same time of 44.45sec.

Anastasia, who won two classes here last year, was not at her best at this year's Sunshine Tour in Spain. "It was about time she hit form," said Twomey.Hamlet used to be ridden for Italy by Gianni Govoni until Williams acquired the horse two years ago and they had a grand prix victory at the 2003 Horse of the Year Show.

John Whitaker, who had the fastest time in the jump-off, would have wonoutright on Lactic 2 but for a single error.

ROYAL WINDSOR: Land Rover Grade A Jumping: 1= Loro Piana Hamlet (G Williams) and Anastasia (B Twomey, Irl) clear, 44.45sec; 3 Socks (D McPherson) clear, 45.37.
