LONDON, Dec. 14–In the showdown that was deferred from the World Equestrian Games, Great Britain’s Laura Bechtolsheimer rode her silver medal star Mistral Hojris to a clear cut victory over Adelinde Cornelissen and Jerich Parzival at the Olympia International Horse Show World Cup qualifying Grand Prix Tuesday.

In the battle of the chestnut geldings, Laura and Mistral Hojris on whom she collected three silver medals at WEG in Kentucky–one team for Great Britain and two individual–the pair scored 82.936 per cent and first place ranking by all five judges. She was also the first Briton ever to win the Grand Prix at Olympia and also set a new national record.

Adelinde who suffered heartbreak in Kentucky when Parzival nicked his tongue to draw blood and was disqualified from their first world championship, were the unanimous choice for second place on 78.170 per cent.

Edward Gal, Adelinde’s Dutch team mate, was more than 10 percentage points behind the winning combination to place third on Sisther de Jeu with 72.553 per cent. Edward was the star of this hugely popular event just a year ago when he rode to the title on Moorlands Totilas, the black stallion that will now be competed by Matthias Alexander Rath of Germany.

In fourth place was the German-based American Catherine Haddad aboard Winyamaro for a score of 69.191 per cent. The pair was reserve for the U.S. team at WEG. Catherine is currently standing second in the West European League World Cup standings and almost certainly will go to the top after the freestyle. But that position is likely to be short lived as the next WEL World Cup qualifier is in Frankfurt later this week and leader Isabell Werth of Germany is competing there.

The Olympia freestyle scheduled for Wednesday night will be streamed live on FEI-TV (http://www.feitv.org/page/Live/0,,12664,00.html) beginning at 8 p.m. local (2100 CET/3 pm US ET) and will decide points toward qualifying for the World Cup Final in Leipzig, Germany at the end of April.

Mistral Hojris’s piaffe and passage helped give the British combination 19 “10s,” including 10s for the final piaffe on the centerline from all five judges for the immensely popular and talented 26-year-old rider and the 15-year-old Danish warmblood.

“Alf was really on the ball tonight,” Laura said. “He was excited, strong and even more spectacular than usual. I have nothing to complain about with his performance, he was physically and mentally on top form.”

Looking ahead to the Freestyle, Laura added: “I’m a little nervous about the Freestyle as Alf hasn’t been out in a while – it will certainly be an exciting ride!”

Adelinde said: “Parzival got a little scared in his extended trot and from then on stayed a little reserved. I had to get him going again after that but he did his job – he just needed something a bit extra. I knew the little mistakes we made weren’t enough to win.”

The London leg of the World Cup series is the fourth out of 10 competitions, with Frankfurt marking the halfway point of the 2010/2011 series.

Fifteen combinations from six countries – Belgium, Finland, France, USA, Great Britain and The Netherlands – started in the Grand Prix.
