While the uncharacteristic weather put a dampener on proceedings in Vilamoura at the start of the week, the sun returned to shine on Jack and Hollywood on Thursday – the pair 5th in a hotly contested 4* 1.40 class. 

On Friday, Shane and new addition Haya took 8th in that same class and Jack was clear aboard Cuick Star Kervec73 riders came forward for the 4* 1.50 ranking class, including Jack and KBS Major Player who took their chunk of the prize money, finishing in 10th place an qualifying for Sunday’s Grand Prix. 

Saturday’s small Grand Prix (1.40) saw both Jack and Hollywood and Shane and Gait L into the jump off for 11th and 12th place finishes respectively. Jack and BBS Mc Gregor also took on the 1.30 Accumulator, neatly collecting all 65 points on offer – the same went for Georgia and super mare Quintella who went on to finish 3rd. 

Sunday brought the 1.55 4* Grand Prix and a host of the biggest international names to the main arena at Vilamoura Equestrian Centre. Of the 50 combinations, just 5 were clear in the first round with the time also proving difficult for some. With both horse and rider among the youngest competitors to take to the arena, Jack and KBS Major Player stepped up to the challenge, finishing inside the time with just an unlucky 4 faults for an eventual 15th place.
