Second place went to Louis Bronstein, with Max Suttie third, Pete Hawkins fourth, Luke Eggar fifth and Richard Long sixth.

Victoria Sigma’s Heidi Gould was first expert/elite female, with Daisy Peters taking the fun female prize. Ashley Whelan was first fun male.

Southfork’s Max Standen had a good weekend. He won the short course event on Saturday and was first juvenile male on Sunday.

Team-mate Ed Walsh was first sport male, while Johnathan Dominguez finished as first grand vet male.

The super vet male and female titles went to Mark Harkwicke and Kim Long, while Lee Hayward and Sally Godber were the normal vet categories winners.
