Mendoza and Spirit T second in World Cup Helsinki

In the Finnish World Cup at Helsinki, Great-Britain’s Jessica Mendoza was the runner-up behind the victorious Swiss rider Romain Duguet (Quorida du Trehot). Jessica and her AES horse Spirit T had spectacularly taken over the lead of Olympic Champion Steve Guerdat, but in the end she was beaten by the Swiss rider with a time difference of eleven hundredths of a second. The last rider Daniel Deusser tried to do even better, but the German rider and Cornet d'Amour ended up in third position, just in front of Steve Guerdat and his Olympic horse Nino des Buissonnets. Last week Jessica and Spirit T placed second in the Grand Prix of Oslo. In the World Cup they had one knock-down.
