Second place went to Simon Delestre (FRA) with Qlassic Bois Margot and third to Portugal's Luciana Diniz with Winningmood. Championship Leader Ludger Beerbaum (GER) finished 5th, one place ahead of his close ranking rival Rolf-Göran Bengtsson (SWE), enabling him to maintain his lead. Despite picking up 8 faults in the second round, reigning Champion Scott Brash has jumped up from 6th to 3rd making the race for the overall 2014 title between these three riders.

Patrice Delaveau and Orient Express HDC on top in the Longines FEI World Cup in Helsinki
The second leg of the Longines FEI World Cup in the Western European league was won by Patrice Delaveau and Orient Express HDC (Quick Star x Le Tot de Semilly). Part two of the World Cup series took place in Helsinki, Finland Sunday afternoon - and coming in as second-last to go in the jump-off Delaveau stole the victory from Steve Guerdat who yet again had to see himself in runner-up position, just like last weekend in the opening leg in Oslo. Perfect result for Luciana and Winningmood: She was placed at 5th position - in the World Cup ranking she is 2nd!
He won the Grand Prix on Saturday - and he won his class on Sunday. Britain's Scott Brash seemed unbeatable in Oslo this weekend. He won at an incredible speed, and went flying through the jump-off in the first leg of the Longines FEI World Cup™ jumping series securing him a clear victory in front of top riders Steve Guerdat and Marcus Ehning at second and third. Big compliments for Luciana Diniz and Winningmood. The couple showed again lovely rounds and finished after the jump-off on 4th position! Horse owner Edouard de Rothschild is enthusiastic about the performance of his lady-rider and his stallion.
