Phillip Miller produced two stunning rides to clinch the Winter Grand Prix show jumping title by over one and a half seconds.
The Harpenden rider took the title at The College Equestrian Centre at Keysoe in Bedfordshire on board the Caretino Glory sired 13-year-old mare, Sussex Caretino.
Six of the initial 21 starters produced a clear first round over course designer David Cole’s 13-fence track.
And from those six, four went on to produce double clears.
But it was the speed of the second round from Miller and Sussex Caretino, a horse he has ridden for the Brendon Stud since 2014, that was key.
