MATTHEW SAMPSON scored with the 11-year-old Gloria
Van Zuuthoeve in the 1.45m €30,000 (£26,500) grand prix, with British riders filling five of the top six places in a 15-strong jump-off.
“The plan is to try getting into some bigger shows,” said Matthew, who has been riding the mare for a year. “She has a huge stride and the way the course was built really suited us today.”
Among the ranking class winners was Louise Simpson (Fiona VH Lemmenshof) and Lance Whitehouse secured a hat-trick.
