A whole host of top equestrian talent has arrived in Monaco ahead of this weekend’s three day feast of show jumping. Rolf-Göran Bengtsson (SWE) brings his two top horses, the formidable Casall ASK and Clarimo ASK to the intimate sand arena for the ninth round of action in the Championship. Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS) has top mare Lintea Tequila, the horse with whom she won the LGCT Grand Prix of Miami Beach with and also took silver last weekend at the LGCT Grand Prix of Cannes.
Ranking leader Christian Ahlmann (GER) also brings top stallion, the eye-catching Colorit, and third place ranked rider Bertram Allen (IRL) has his top mare, Molly Malone in action this weekend. Scott Brash (GBR) brings Hello Forever, his LGCT Grand Prix of Cannes winning horse, and Hello Guv’nor, one of his newer upcoming horses. Compatriot John Whitaker (GBR) will also compete with two of the superstars from his stable, the scopey Ornellaia who nearly won him the class here this time last year, and his 12 year old bay gelding Lord of Arabia.
Jessica Springsteen (USA) brings with her the exceptionally speedy Davendy S, a combination that have won many a speed class before, and the Tour will see Vindicat W back in action for this round of what promises to be exhilarating competition in the iconic Principality destination.
