Anky Van Grunsven and IPS Salinero
When asked what his thoughts are going into the Kur tomorrow Peters said that he saw Anky and Salinero’s Kur in Rotterdam, so is aware what they are capable of! He hoped that he and Ravel could produce their Las Vegas form ... then it will be a very close competition. So stay tuned!!

2nd was Anky Van Grunsven and IPS Salinero were determined not to be 5th again today. In a much more relaxed test, today only a few minor errors upset the score and took the lead from them. With 76.583% they were only 0.334% away from the leader.
3rd was Hans Peter Minderhoud and Exquis Nadine managed to keep the Germans out of the top three places with a score of 74.500%. The lovely mare Nadine is in fine form at the moment and together this pair is doing a great job in the competition.
