MECHELEN, Belgium, Dec. 27–Edward Gal, the reigning World Cup champion, rode Sisther de Jeu to victory in the Jumping Mechelen World Cup qualifier Grand Prix Monday, the first of the 2010/2011 indoor series in which the Dutch rider has competed.

Edward and the 11-year-old Gribaldi mare scored 71.744 per cent, the only one of the 17 starters to score above 70 per cent in what is the 6th of the 10 events that make up the West European League World Cup series leading to the Final in Leipzig, Germany, at the end of April. Edward won the Final last March aboard the superstar stallion Totilas that was sold to Germany after the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky.

Dutch team mate Hans Peter Minderhoud on the 15-year-old mare Exquis Nadine placed second with 68.255 per cent and Germany’s Helen Langehanenberg on Damon Hill NRW was third on 67.914 per cent.

The freestyle that will determine points for the WEL standings will be held Tuesday.

Germany’s Ulla Salzgeber finished fifth aboard Wakana but, barring anything untoward, she will move to sole leader in the standings after the freestyle. She currently is tied with Isabell Werth atop the leaderboard.

In the Prix St. Georges, Sweden’s Patrik on Silvano 1057 was the winner with 69.894 per cent, Holland’s Imke Schellekens-Bartels on Hunter Douglas Toots was second 68.736 per cent and Julie de Deken of Belgium on Lucky Dance was third with 68.631 per cent.

Meagan Bryant, the Australian who competed Donnabella at the Young Rider World Cup in Frankfurt, placed 13th with 58.157 per cent in a final show before returning home.
