WERRIBEE, Australia, Dec. 1–The top 12 Australian and one New Zealand dressage combinations have been selected for the Pacific League World Cup Final to decide who will compete at the global final in Leipzig, Germany at the end of April.

Gitte Donvig and Port Said 10 were second to Heath at the Australian Championships in the Grand Prix and the Freestyle, including a personal best Freestyle score of 70.30 per cent.

Three-time Olympian and a World Cup Finalist Mary Hanna has qualified two horses, including the newly imported Sancette but she can only ride one in the Freestyle.
