James Fisher, who was eighth on the mare, Rose Princess, finished just ahead of John Whitaker on Everest Randi and his younger brother, Michael, on Diana. Fisher would have secured a higher placing but for his mount slipping when making a U-turn after the second fence.
Nick Skelton was the fastest of the British riders yesterday and he would have finished fourth had the French-bred mare, Corezienne, left the last fence intact. Skelton gave Everest Dollar Girl a rest yesterday; she will have her first competition here today before taking part in tomorrow's World Cup class.
