IN WINNING FORM IN ESTORIL

Released 23.7.07Robert has returned from a very successful Estoril CSI5* (19-21 July) having won two classes on both Vangelis S and Ronaldo, as well as jumping superbly in Saturday’s Grande Premio de Portugal, to clinch third place in the fourth leg of the 2007 Global Champions Tour.

Ronaldo, at just nine years of age, competed against more experienced horses and jumped the 1.60m track in style.  He was one of only six starters out of 35 to go clear in the first round in which the top 18 qualify to jump in the second round, in reverse order of faults and time.   Robert was one of three to jump double clears reaching the jump-off to finish third overall winning over 40,000 euros in this prestigious competition.

Earlier in the week Robert had won the Casino Estoril Prize (1.50m) on Vangelis S and the Vista Algre Prize (1.45m) with his own Ronaldo.
