Jodie Amos put in a foot-perfect performance to secure victory in the large CCI* class at Aldon Horse Trials, riding her own Altairs Luck.

Lying in fourth and fifth after dressage on Stanly and Madame Folie Bergere, Polly Williamson notched up two faultless cross-country rounds, but while Madame Folie Bergere jumped a copybook round in the show jumping to take the runner-up spot, Stanly became unsettled and collected 20 faults.

Louisa Lockwood and her own Tis Wat added nothing more to their dressage mark of 45, promoting them from 11th to third place.

Vicky Tuffs’s clear show jumping round on Rudolf III moved her into fourth, just ahead of Tom Strong on Shalmiro Cavalier, with Katie Barber riding the ex-racehorse Analytical into sixth.

William Fox-Pitt won intermediate section N on All That Jazz V. Lucie McNichol finished second on Zeus Of Rushall ahead of Eric Winter on Rembrandt.

Daniel Leech won the second intermediate section riding Fintans Gold, one mark ahead of Amy Williams and her own Darwin II, with Katie Kneen third on Leo Z.
