Alex Gill took today’s All England 6 & 7 Year Old Championship with the six-year-old Billy Rembrandt. He also took third place with his seven-year-old ride, Billy Amber.

It was a successful debut for the partnership. “Yesterday was the first time I have ever jumped him [Billy Rembrandt] in a competition as he is normally ridden by William Funnell – but he is away jumping abroad at the moment,” explained Alex, who is one of the stable jockeys for the Billy Stud.

“To win at Hickstead is just brilliant! It is fantastic to win in such a historic ring – it’s one of the greatest in the world,” he said.

In second place was Trevor Breen and Zilton SL Z.

In the All England Five Year Old Championship, Harry Bateman took the honours with Havanna, ahead of Holly Smith and Manolito P.

Georgia Tame was back at the top of the International Arena line-up for the second day in a row. She won today’s 1.40m Open riding Cordanos, who is owned by Team Z7.

She had three horses in the class, and picked up third and sixth place as well as her win. “I wasn’t expecting to be placed with all three horses so that is just a bonus,” said the rider, who is based at Breen Equestrian.
