Bramham event tests best.

Byline: DUNCAN BECH Sports Correspondent

WILLIAM Fox-Pitt stormed to the summit of the British Equestrian Trade Association CIC3 leaderboard at the Equi-Trek Bramham International.

A fine dressage display left Fox-Pitt and Chilli Morning in second, but when early leader Pippa Funnell had a run out, his superbly-judged round brought him home seven seconds inside the time.

Huddersfield rider Oliver Townend had been advertised as competing but was not on show as second place Sir Mark Todd steered nine-year-old Leonidas II within two seconds of the optimum time, while Frenchman Mathieu Lemoine and Quickness finished the day in third.
