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.
