is the capital of Normandy, Caen. William the Conqueror built this

:01:06.:01:07.

stronghold six years before he crossed the Channel. It is known as

:01:08.:01:20.

Terre de Cheval, which translates as horse country. And once again the

:01:21.:01:35.

place has been overrun by chevaux, this is the venue for the largest

:01:36.:01:43.

horse event ever staged, showcasing diverse sport, and this is where the

:01:44.:01:49.

best in the world come to compete in the Olympic disciplines. Great

:01:50.:01:54.

Britain has the number one rider in all three.

:01:55.:02:14.

As well as building his castle in Caen William the conga establish

:02:15.:02:33.

this, the Abbe aux Hommes, where men were kept separate from women. -

:02:34.:02:41.

William the Congress. Scott Brasch was recently confirmed as the

:02:42.:02:45.

leading rider in the world. The winner this afternoon, the world 's

:02:46.:02:51.

number one, getting in outing, it is Scotland's, Great Britain's Scott

:02:52.:02:59.

Brasch. As in the countryside this is Aran des Pins, one of the

:03:00.:03:07.

national studs. Great Britain are the reigning world champions. -

:03:08.:03:17.

Hara du Pins For the Great Britain have the number one rider in the

:03:18.:03:23.

world, the tall and elegant William Fox-Pitt. A respectful distance from

:03:24.:03:30.

the Abbe aux Hommes is the women's abbey, founded by Queen Matilda who

:03:31.:03:36.

set it up for Benedictine nuns, now it is a woman who leads the way in

:03:37.:03:39.

dressage and she is British, Charlotte deja Dujardin is

:03:40.:03:52.

unstoppable. She took gold in the Grand Prix special and it was a

:03:53.:03:57.

performance of so much fluency and look at his willingness to perform,

:03:58.:04:01.

it is all about controlled power and rhythm. And supreme beauty. She

:04:02.:04:06.

still had the freestyle to come where she can choreograph her own

:04:07.:04:10.

moves the music of her choice and this is her favourite event.

:04:11.:04:22.

Great Britain 's Charlotte Dujardin. With Valegro.

:04:23.:05:02.

Some of the most difficult intricate manoeuvres you could see all made

:05:03.:05:07.

look perfectly simple and easy. One hurdle out of the way. We could

:05:08.:06:48.

be watching one of the best ever, nations in the world of dressage.

:06:49.:06:56.

Making history, she holds the world record for the freestyle at 92. 79%,

:06:57.:07:06.

that would win her the third and final championship title, the World

:07:07.:07:08.

Championship. Beautiful. This is a truly

:07:09.:07:53.

magnificent performance from Charlotte and Valegro yet again

:07:54.:07:56.

What a combination, what a horse and rider, what a trainer from Carl

:07:57.:08:03.

Heston, what a terrific owner, thank you also much. We are watching

:08:04.:08:06.

something very, very, very special. That is the best you will ever see

:08:07.:08:28.

of a reverse pirouette, incredible. CHEERING

:08:29.:08:34.

Well, is it a world record? If it isn't she is a winner of the world

:08:35.:08:40.

title. Here she is, your immediate reaction? I cannot believe it,

:08:41.:08:45.

honestly, absolutely gobsmacked I don't know what to say. After London

:08:46.:08:52.

2012I did not think it would get much better but last year I got

:08:53.:08:56.

double gold at the Europeans. This week has been going so well. I was

:08:57.:09:02.

praying I could maybe pull off it today and I cannot believe it. How

:09:03.:09:07.

quickly do you know whether Valegro is on song. Touchwood he is always

:09:08.:09:14.

on song, I never have to worry about it. Today I could feel he was a bit

:09:15.:09:18.

tired but he gave me his all in the arena. That is what makes him so

:09:19.:09:23.

special. He always keeps trying The crowd loved it, they gave you such a

:09:24.:09:29.

reception. All week I have had a fantastic reception, it is great to

:09:30.:09:33.

have that support, all of those fans cheering you on. You can stay

:09:34.:09:38.

motivated on the days when it is cold and raining at home because of

:09:39.:09:44.

moments like this. Absolutely, it makes it all worthwhile. I cannot

:09:45.:09:48.

have been the only one fighting back the tears, so beautiful to see her

:09:49.:09:53.

and Valegro. Now we will turn our attention to the three-day eventing,

:09:54.:09:58.

in the countryside in Normandy we will see the world 's leading

:09:59.:10:01.

riders, you would think that they would be up there competing for the

:10:02.:10:06.

gold medal. But don't rule out Great Britain, the team of four including

:10:07.:10:10.

three from London 2012, who brought home the silver medal and one new

:10:11.:10:14.

name, so let's meet the British team.

:10:15.:10:17.

Four years ago in Kentucky, William Fox-Pitt won an individual silver

:10:18.:10:24.

medal. These days he is riding Chilli Morning and they took the

:10:25.:10:28.

individual bronze last year at the European Championships in Sweden. He

:10:29.:10:31.

is a super horse, I have had him for three years, lovely horse. Quite

:10:32.:10:37.

eccentric, here's a stallion, in fact he is the leading stallion in

:10:38.:10:43.

eventing. We have formed a great partnership, some good results. I am

:10:44.:10:48.

hoping we can put in another good performance. Zara Phillips one

:10:49.:10:51.

individual gold at the world Equestrian games in 2006 and

:10:52.:10:55.

following time-outs last year to have a baby she has made a

:10:56.:10:59.

successful return to the team. It is great to be here and part of the

:11:00.:11:02.

team again. Just really looking forward to it. Getting your muscles

:11:03.:11:08.

and your core and everything back to where it was after having a baby was

:11:09.:11:14.

quite hard work. But it is like a drug, you want to do it again and

:11:15.:11:20.

stay at the top and keep putting out those best performances. Almost

:11:21.:11:24.

exactly a year ago, Harry Mead suffered an horrific fall in which

:11:25.:11:30.

he shattered both arms. Against all the-year-olds he has made an

:11:31.:11:35.

astonishing recovery. Quite a few months of operations and rehab and

:11:36.:11:40.

it was a lot of unknown ground in there and I did not know whether I

:11:41.:11:44.

would get back in the sport and a year to the day later I am at the

:11:45.:11:49.

World Championships. Quite a fairy tale year. Already a two-time team

:11:50.:11:54.

gold medallist, Tina Cook this year will pair up with her 11-year-old De

:11:55.:12:03.

Novo News, also known as Herman My brother was the first one who had

:12:04.:12:08.

seen it, he said it was ugly, looked like Herman Munster. So he kept the

:12:09.:12:16.

name. This horse is still not the finished article and I still believe

:12:17.:12:19.

there is more improving to come from him but it is exciting he is at the

:12:20.:12:24.

World Championships. If we can put in good performances as a team and

:12:25.:12:29.

riders, we would not be far away from goal. That is the British team

:12:30.:12:38.

and add to that two individuals with Olivia Wilson, Ian Stark alongside

:12:39.:12:42.

me part of the gold medal winning team in 1986. What should we expect

:12:43.:12:47.

out of this team? At the beginning with this selection process we had a

:12:48.:12:54.

very exciting team, some good young horses. A couple of them went lame,

:12:55.:12:58.

sadly but still we have an experienced team. Great that Harry

:12:59.:13:02.

Meade has been given a chance at last. When I arrived here I was not

:13:03.:13:06.

that convinced they would be gold medal contenders but then I walked

:13:07.:13:10.

the course and got excited because I thought it was a real British

:13:11.:13:14.

course, long and undulating and muddy. They should benefit.

:13:15.:13:18.

Overnight they have taken out two of the fences and a minute of distance

:13:19.:13:23.

so that will change, but I think the Brits might be struggling now. Fifth

:13:24.:13:27.

after the dressage, they might be struggling to get into the medals.

:13:28.:13:33.

We will confirm those dressage places in a moment but the other

:13:34.:13:36.

significant thing is that this is the first opportunity to qualify for

:13:37.:13:42.

Rio? Getting in the first six is important. They will want to qualify

:13:43.:13:46.

early and not leave it to the last gasp and hopefully they will do

:13:47.:13:50.

that. The New Zealand team probably has the highest average age, do you

:13:51.:13:57.

see them as favourites? Without a doubt. The Germans are in the lead

:13:58.:14:00.

after the dressage but the Kiwis will relish these conditions. They

:14:01.:14:05.

have some great horses and brilliant riders. The team has fantastic

:14:06.:14:09.

experience. They will push the Germans to the last minute. What

:14:10.:14:14.

about the individual medals? Hopefully William is up there, he

:14:15.:14:19.

certainly had a great performance in the dressage and he is a brilliant

:14:20.:14:23.

competitor. Could not ask for more. Chilli Morning is a classy horse,

:14:24.:14:28.

has won a lot of competitions. I do not knowing if he has been under

:14:29.:14:31.

pressure in wet conditions but I think William will be up there. The

:14:32.:14:36.

cross-country will sort it out but let's confirm the placings after the

:14:37.:14:42.

dressage. Germany leading the way in the team standings ahead of New

:14:43.:14:45.

Zealand and the United States. Great Britain just ahead of the

:14:46.:14:51.

Netherlands and Canada. In the individual, edition Sandra Auffarth

:14:52.:14:54.

recorded the best score ahead of William Fox-Pitt. This is the horse

:14:55.:15:03.

that tested positive and burly, Clifton promised. Michael Jung is

:15:04.:15:06.

the defending champion and Nicola Wilson, great test for her in 1 th

:15:07.:15:13.

on Annie Clover. Therefore the cross-country got underway we take a

:15:14.:15:15.

look at some of the challenges facing the field. Riders have been

:15:16.:15:20.

on a gently descending right-hand turn before they come to this fence,

:15:21.:15:25.

and it goes seriously downhill. They land down there. It is a long way

:15:26.:15:31.

down and then the first of three fairly serious water, nations. Only

:15:32.:15:35.

six strides to recover after the big drop and then this very narrow

:15:36.:15:40.

fronted fence. Not only is it now to approach but there is a widespread

:15:41.:15:45.

with a fairly large drop into the water. When they get over that they

:15:46.:15:49.

get the sea element, another narrow fence and then only three strides to

:15:50.:15:55.

get that right. There is a slower route but if they take that they

:15:56.:16:01.

will struggle. This is a tribute to one of the historic monuments but

:16:02.:16:05.

the riders are not appreciating the painting. What is the tricky part

:16:06.:16:11.

which the clever thing is that the numbering of the fences, this ditch

:16:12.:16:15.

is the second element, B and C, when you get down here, it is also the

:16:16.:16:20.

modest part, if you attempt the ditch you have to have a go at ease.

:16:21.:16:25.

If you divert to the alternative it means you have to jump C twice. They

:16:26.:16:32.

would then be eliminated. -- you have to have a go at D. The horse is

:16:33.:16:38.

starting to get tired by this point. Inevitably, pretty undulate in, long

:16:39.:16:44.

course, the ground will be heavy. Very wet. Only the riders will know

:16:45.:16:48.

how the horses are feeling. The most important thing is that the riders

:16:49.:16:52.

are fit enough to help the riders when they get tired. They have to

:16:53.:16:57.

react to the situation. This step up to the finish, quite a tough

:16:58.:17:01.

question, the solid part is pretty low. The main thing is they get onto

:17:02.:17:08.

the line for the second fish in the middle of the water. There is an

:17:09.:17:13.

alternative to this step up and it is this single element and drop into

:17:14.:17:17.

the second water but if they do that they have to go around the big

:17:18.:17:21.

circle, jumping the jetty and then turn another circle. If horses

:17:22.:17:24.

getting tired that could exhaust them even more. COMMENTATOR: Away

:17:25.:17:36.

goes the first, it is Mark Davison, Bruce Davison here watching his son.

:17:37.:17:41.

He wrote four years ago in Kentucky when America finished fourth, he is

:17:42.:17:48.

riding this Irish bred horse. 4 .7 in the dressage, 28 individually but

:17:49.:18:07.

the Americans sat very comfortably. Hara de Pin Posted the 1969 World

:18:08.:18:18.

Championships. You can see the big spread. -- hosted. It is downhill to

:18:19.:18:23.

that fence, pretty vertical face. They have two respected, then the

:18:24.:18:30.

first of, nations, four and five. The riders have been worried about

:18:31.:18:37.

this. Over the top of the flag, got away with that. It is very early to

:18:38.:18:42.

be influential. The interesting part about this cross-country, really an

:18:43.:18:48.

gelatin. We thought it would be a horseman scores when it was

:18:49.:18:53.

full-length. But the minute off that may help some of them. The

:18:54.:19:01.

judgement not quite so difficult, but the important aspect is the

:19:02.:19:06.

going. It will be sticky. It will be sticky, it will be interesting. The

:19:07.:19:11.

first couple of horses it might not be too bad but when it cuts up it

:19:12.:19:17.

may start drying out and get sticky. They have forecast rain so it may go

:19:18.:19:23.

the other way. There is a choice of routes here. Looks as though he is

:19:24.:19:29.

going the inside line, taking the quickest route. The French on the

:19:30.:19:48.

homeground, huge support. The scores are very close. France did not have

:19:49.:19:59.

a happy time in Canterbury four years ago. Pascal finished in 2 th,

:20:00.:20:08.

in very good form. He looks as though he is set for the quicker

:20:09.:20:16.

route. He has run past it. That is 20 on the board for that. In essence

:20:17.:20:35.

that is a manner of losing momentum. This horse will not get round, if he

:20:36.:20:39.

has another refusal he will be asked to leave the course. He is going the

:20:40.:20:45.

alternative route, the black flag it, but he has put his hand up. Wow.

:20:46.:20:53.

That is drama. Very sensible move, the horse was getting pretty tired.

:20:54.:20:59.

And he had said no at the fence and to try it again when the horse has

:21:00.:21:03.

run out of penalty like that -- petrol like that, was risking a

:21:04.:21:17.

fall. Pascal Leroy. The horse looks full of running. But he has run out

:21:18.:21:33.

as well. That did not seem to be a real worry, particularly when there

:21:34.:21:42.

had been so many early on. It is at the end of the cause, it is a big

:21:43.:21:49.

step up. I thought when we were watching it that the actual solid

:21:50.:21:54.

part of the fish was quite small. They are just not focusing on it.

:21:55.:21:59.

Look at the time in the bottom right-hand corner, that is the time,

:22:00.:22:05.

counting down. Ten minutes 30 is the optimum time, for every second point

:22:06.:22:11.

for penalty, he now has less than 30 seconds to get home. Zahra Tindall,

:22:12.:22:20.

Zara Phillips looking very serious at the moment. Cannot blame her Of

:22:21.:22:26.

course this horse owned by Trevor Hemmings, huge supporter of the

:22:27.:22:33.

question world in general. This has won the Grand with those famous

:22:34.:22:38.

colours, but he will be watching every move of this, nation. Former

:22:39.:22:44.

world champion, from 2006, she sets out on her horse, High Kingdom. Of

:22:45.:22:53.

coarse had a daughter earlier this year, has not had a big preparation

:22:54.:23:00.

but they are a combination who often come to their best when it really

:23:01.:23:05.

matters. Britain need that today. Had a odds of 54.5, Zara and High

:23:06.:23:14.

Kingdom. -- had a dressage of 5 .5. It is this phase that will matter.

:23:15.:23:19.

One of the quickest over those first three fences. It is not that long

:23:20.:23:27.

since she had a baby. Quite tough to get back to this sort of level of

:23:28.:23:32.

competing in fitness but no one more determined than Zara. Wasting no

:23:33.:23:38.

time, very quickly back into the river. In the silver medal team in

:23:39.:23:44.

London of course on this very horse. Irish bred, one of the great jumping

:23:45.:23:51.

horses out of Ireland in recent times.

:23:52.:24:00.

This is a lady who knows how to get horses, she knows her point to

:24:01.:24:09.

pointing, so every hope that this horse will be fit to run for its

:24:10.:24:15.

life and that I think is going to be very important. She certainly thinks

:24:16.:24:19.

he is fit enough, not hanging around. One of the quickest so far,

:24:20.:24:25.

she is going the quicker route here on fence seven, turning inside the

:24:26.:24:32.

trees. Huge jump over the second house. The draw in the British team

:24:33.:24:42.

running order caused a lot of interest. Zara going first. And

:24:43.:24:50.

William Fox-Pitt going second. With Tina Cook going third and Harry

:24:51.:24:56.

Meade fourth. But with the circumstances we find ourselves in

:24:57.:24:59.

with these ground conditions that could be very shrewd. Of course

:25:00.:25:11.

under the management of Yogi. Zara and High Kingdom at the first water.

:25:12.:25:17.

Well written. Good bit of rebalancing, she did not just gun

:25:18.:25:21.

down into the rushes, she added another stride. She gave him time to

:25:22.:25:35.

jump the fences. Difficult to see this fence that one of the widest

:25:36.:25:41.

fences on the course. Looks quite insignificant sitting there. Two

:25:42.:25:45.

metres, the championship with. That is a long way. -- width. Zara

:25:46.:25:55.

changing her whip over, getting ready for the left turn. Zara

:25:56.:26:02.

Phillips, High Kingdom, the first of the British team out on the course.

:26:03.:26:08.

She was plenty quick enough into the ditch and nearly paid the penalty.

:26:09.:26:15.

But she is still clear. Good reactions from Zara, she kept hold

:26:16.:26:19.

of the left rains, used every inch of her body to get the horse ran

:26:20.:26:29.

that turn. -- rein. Zara has had to work hard on her fingers, not found

:26:30.:26:34.

it easy. Well aware that she as well as the horse need to be fit. As we

:26:35.:26:40.

see again the water, the first of three waters on this course. If you

:26:41.:26:44.

are just joining us, the distance has been changed, one minutes being

:26:45.:26:50.

taken off, now it is 5982 metres, with the optimum time of 10.30.

:26:51.:26:56.

Nobody anywhere near yet, five round. Did not get very high over

:26:57.:27:02.

that brush, taking a liberty, High Kingdom. But still running on well.

:27:03.:27:22.

Coming to this major water complex. I do not think there is any doubt

:27:23.:27:26.

that Zara Wood wants to keep going straight. -- would. Sit tight, sit

:27:27.:27:48.

tight! That was a bit hairy. She was a long way off that first, the horse

:27:49.:27:55.

was brilliant in that he responded and kept jumping. Zara Phillips was

:27:56.:28:02.

just about left off the back door. Coming home to the last, good news

:28:03.:28:08.

from Australia, after disappointing news that Christopher Burton had to

:28:09.:28:15.

withdraw, jumping the last. And he is going to be some 45 or 46 seconds

:28:16.:28:23.

over. He moves on to 71.7, for the first rider for Australia. Now we

:28:24.:28:35.

are back with Sara. Keep -- Zara Phillips. She landed over that one.

:28:36.:28:45.

And she is still intact. My word, that horses being generous, very

:28:46.:28:50.

generous indeed, pictures now of the Polish rider, he is asking if he has

:28:51.:28:57.

jumped the corner or not. Zara Phillips living dangerously. This is

:28:58.:29:01.

where her fitness and the horse is fitness will count. What is her

:29:02.:29:07.

time? The first of the British team riders, they could pull up a long

:29:08.:29:11.

way, they could get three clear rounds, she is still counting down.

:29:12.:29:17.

She is not over the optimum time yet, she will get time penalties,

:29:18.:29:22.

that is for sure. She is still a quarter of a mile away from home.

:29:23.:29:28.

The horse is definitely beginning to look a little bit weary but he is

:29:29.:29:33.

responding to her, which is a good sign. Yes he is responding, she is

:29:34.:29:40.

having to work and the fitness of Zara Phillips coming into play as

:29:41.:29:44.

much as the Horst white don't make an error now Zara Phillips, come on.

:29:45.:29:52.

Really they are both feeling a little bit weary, when they get

:29:53.:29:58.

home, just a last note, no dramas here we hope. She is going to be

:29:59.:30:04.

over the time, counting 30 seconds plus, but the horse has done so well

:30:05.:30:11.

and so has Zara Phillips to be fair. High Kingdom did help her out once

:30:12.:30:17.

or twice, at 68.9 it puts her at the moment as the top individual. It is

:30:18.:30:23.

good news for Britain's first team rider. Marked model of New Zealand,

:30:24.:30:38.

-- Mark Todd. He is on course. The world Olympic and European champion

:30:39.:30:43.

is getting ready to go. Michael Jung, he is the first for the

:30:44.:30:51.

Germans, this is a nine-year-old mare. Sadly he went out about two

:30:52.:31:03.

weeks ago, his original horse, this is a different horse to the one that

:31:04.:31:07.

he won the Europeans in Malmo a year ago. Great dress arch. This will be

:31:08.:31:17.

interesting now. Germany of course Olympic champions, European

:31:18.:31:21.

champions but they are not world champions, Britain won that in

:31:22.:31:27.

Kentucky's 4-mac years ago -- great dressage. To get forth in dressage

:31:28.:31:32.

is pretty impressive, it is not one that I know well, he is certainly

:31:33.:31:43.

set up with determination. Zara Phillips has just about recovered

:31:44.:31:47.

from the fastest clear so far? I know, it is really hard work out

:31:48.:31:54.

there, just put the leg out, and, they cannot gallop the same way so

:31:55.:32:00.

it is really tough on them. Wasn't he a star? I was brilliant -- he was

:32:01.:32:07.

bred, I was saying come on man, keep going it was tough on him. Was this

:32:08.:32:11.

one of the toughest cross-country is you have had to do with fitness and

:32:12.:32:17.

coming back? Definitely, London was hard because it was like riding a

:32:18.:32:21.

motorbike track, but this you have got terms, hills, ground, it is just

:32:22.:32:26.

horrible for them. They are going through it but it is not the same as

:32:27.:32:30.

they are used to and you have got to make sure that you write that way.

:32:31.:32:36.

How did you feel? I felt all right actually, he is such a star, you

:32:37.:32:41.

know? A couple of places I was hanging on the back, he keeps on

:32:42.:32:45.

going and is brilliant, I am just so glad that he is here and able to

:32:46.:32:51.

prove that, you know? And you are back on the British team? I know,

:32:52.:32:57.

and line have never been Howard first either, it is nice to get on

:32:58.:33:02.

and get on with it -- I know, and I have never been out first either, it

:33:03.:33:08.

is nice. Second water, flies through that. Very well written. He has got

:33:09.:33:21.

such a good gear going, the horse is not having to put a big effort into

:33:22.:33:28.

the jumping, he is just going along. And a fall! It is a fall for Mark

:33:29.:33:38.

Todd! It is that third water. That is really bad news for the Kiwis. It

:33:39.:33:44.

means that they are down to three because the great Sir Mark Todd is

:33:45.:33:53.

out, we will see what the reason for that was in just a moment. Here we

:33:54.:34:03.

go. He is pushing for the step up by the looks of it. Oh! It lands on its

:34:04.:34:14.

knees and he tries so hard to hang on, but sadly gravity takes over.

:34:15.:34:25.

Michaeljohn, the first of the German team getting going, he is counting

:34:26.:34:34.

down -- Michaeljohn. Pretty experienced mare. She is a mine old,

:34:35.:34:39.

and is beginning to look a little bit weary suddenly she has suddenly

:34:40.:34:56.

slowed down, and got a little tap. Still inside that ten minutes 3 , he

:34:57.:35:02.

is not going to get there but he could be quicker than High Kingdom

:35:03.:35:05.

and Zara Phillips, the fastest so far. Absolutely, it is a climb up

:35:06.:35:12.

this final few minutes of the course. 2-mac minutes to jump, time

:35:13.:35:19.

penalties from now, here we are from the world Olympic champions,

:35:20.:35:26.

they were after dressage, on a score of 40. It had them right up there,

:35:27.:35:33.

in fourth place at the last, Michael Jungle for Germany, this is a very

:35:34.:35:37.

good start for them, this is the quickest we have seen so far --

:35:38.:35:44.

Michael Jung. Stopped the clock with 29 seconds over. So he gets

:35:45.:35:55.

11.6 in time penalties. Philip Dutton is in the early stages, we

:35:56.:36:00.

are into the second riders for each team, coming down to the first of

:36:01.:36:04.

three big Waters, on this World Championship cross-country. He gets

:36:05.:36:14.

a nice six in there, waits for the water, just landed a bit steep and

:36:15.:36:20.

short, as he was in the water. Philip quite rightly saying, come on

:36:21.:36:27.

chap, keep your eye on the job. As we see Claire Rabbit, an individual

:36:28.:36:35.

for Ireland. -- Claire Abbott. That is a bit of a surprise. Tour costs

:36:36.:36:45.

through the fall? Well he was going very good, it looked like he had

:36:46.:36:51.

some petrol left, when he gets tired, he does not look very

:36:52.:36:56.

reactive, and we just got a horrible distance on the bank and I could not

:36:57.:37:02.

get him, and he smacked into the side of it and that was the end of

:37:03.:37:09.

its. Are you both OK? We are fine, he walked away, he is bright. Philip

:37:10.:37:18.

Dutton is 50 years old, now very happily married, and the horse is

:37:19.:37:25.

saying no! Sit tight, you don't move this man easily, this horse, he is

:37:26.:37:33.

definitely seeing stars. He is not going to go, is he? No. The

:37:34.:37:41.

Americans are in real trouble. Out of all chance of a medal team wise,

:37:42.:37:47.

he is retiring. That happened literally in the blink of an eye.

:37:48.:37:52.

The defending world champion Michael Jung has set a rig market, how did

:37:53.:37:58.

it feel to you? Very hard-working today, the ground is a bit soft it

:37:59.:38:04.

is very hard-working to galloping between the fences, but the horse

:38:05.:38:09.

did a really good job, I gave a bit more time between the fences in the

:38:10.:38:13.

end, but when you motivate the horse is a little bit, waking up and

:38:14.:38:18.

concentrating and listening to the rider, so I am very happy about my

:38:19.:38:28.

horse. And the second French rider, Cedric, he has ducked the wrong

:38:29.:38:36.

side! He has got a 20, definitely. It was such a good ride, he was just

:38:37.:38:42.

a little bit free, he was very casual would probably be the right

:38:43.:38:50.

word. He saw a spot to attack. And you can see now that he has gone a

:38:51.:38:55.

long way back, he has lost a bit of time because he was not thinking

:38:56.:39:00.

clearly, he went a long way back to jump that alternative fence, this is

:39:01.:39:05.

not an easy fence when you turn away from home. But he is away. Just 20

:39:06.:39:11.

jumping penalties for that refusal but that is two of the French team

:39:12.:39:20.

for 20 and they had up. -- add up. There it is, the world 's best

:39:21.:39:25.

rider, Britain come with three world ranked number ones, now can this

:39:26.:39:36.

man, win a world title? He has been so close, he was the silver

:39:37.:39:42.

medallist four years ago behind Michael Jung. He was in 10th place

:39:43.:39:50.

after dressage, Sandra Auffarth got ahead of him right at the end. And

:39:51.:39:57.

Chilli Morniing is his horse, he is the second rider for Britain and he

:39:58.:40:02.

is underway. William of course is the second of the British team

:40:03.:40:07.

members, four in that team still to come, Tina Cook and Harry Mead, and

:40:08.:40:13.

of course two important things here. Individually, he is in a very good

:40:14.:40:19.

place, written would love to win a medal team wise, they were gold

:40:20.:40:22.

medallists, they are titleholders defending the title, but there is

:40:23.:40:27.

the little job of Olympic qualification for Rio, at four and

:40:28.:40:36.

five. The only one not to take that flag out at the second corner. Just

:40:37.:40:41.

to go back to that Olympic qualification, when we were hosts in

:40:42.:40:45.

London, we automatically had a position but it is of course not the

:40:46.:40:51.

case in Rio, we need to finish in the top six teams. The top six

:40:52.:40:56.

teams, will give us qualification for Rio. Certainly the team manager

:40:57.:41:02.

has put that has a high priority. He jumps the gate at six. -- as. He has

:41:03.:41:11.

set off, it looks like he is having a go at the time, Zara Phillips had

:41:12.:41:17.

a great pathfinding around for the Brits, and his own dressage test was

:41:18.:41:25.

so good. As well as core occasion, -- qualification, William obviously

:41:26.:41:31.

has a pretty good chance of individual medals as well. This is a

:41:32.:41:37.

stallion that has got decent progeny has well, he was a horse that has

:41:38.:41:44.

meddled individually, it is a horse that has been totally prepared for

:41:45.:41:51.

this. He was a good win at Brabham, he did well, William Fox-Pitt, the

:41:52.:41:56.

second rider for Britain, at the first of the waters, with Chilli

:41:57.:42:08.

Morniing. William is looking determined and the horses

:42:09.:42:13.

responding, that is very good. He is a horse that disappointed in

:42:14.:42:16.

Kentucky Derby Mac years ago, they thought that the way to use him was

:42:17.:42:20.

to keep him fresh -- - in Kentucky to years ago. And a

:42:21.:42:38.

trainer produced this horse for Christopher Stone, the owner. Della

:42:39.:42:45.

mac William has got double rains on it

:42:46.:42:56.

is never easy if you need to readjust. It is a nice turn, one of

:42:57.:43:04.

the best terms we have seen all day. William Fox-Pitt for Great Britain,

:43:05.:43:09.

goes away from fence 11, of the 35 fences, he heads up one of the many

:43:10.:43:18.

quite energy sapping hills. Over the triple bar, over the ditch, to the

:43:19.:43:24.

rails, the bar comes a bit later, similar fences in many ways. This

:43:25.:43:40.

stallion, look at that. Look at that look of determination on William's

:43:41.:43:45.

face. William Fox-Pitt for Britain at the second quarter of the three.

:43:46.:44:05.

-- second water. William! Sara Phillips gave us heart attacks there

:44:06.:44:09.

right at the start and William did not make us all together feel

:44:10.:44:13.

comfortable -- Zara Phillips. But he is being positive, that is one good

:44:14.:44:21.

thing. But it was quite interesting, that water, he jumps so boldly,

:44:22.:44:29.

everything else has been finding it quite long. It just shows his scope.

:44:30.:44:46.

You can see here, he saw a stride and he had to go for it, quite close

:44:47.:45:04.

to the second. It was very sharp. Let us not prejudge anything here,

:45:05.:45:09.

it is a nice reassuring pat, he has still got some nice questions to

:45:10.:45:17.

come. Now over halfway round, this course, which has certainly caused a

:45:18.:45:33.

number of upsets. Beautiful. Absolutely spot-on. This man is

:45:34.:45:46.

known as Mr cool. Now, this water. William Fox-Pitt, Chile more,

:45:47.:45:52.

Britain's second team rider, coming to the second most influential jumps

:45:53.:46:08.

so far. He holds onto it. That is well ridden. Lesser horsemen would

:46:09.:46:25.

have given up on that. Now, we should not be saying this to William

:46:26.:46:29.

Fox-Pitt but hold it together William. We had a cute kittens this

:46:30.:46:34.

morning from British riders, let us have no more. We are counting down,

:46:35.:46:42.

35 seconds to get home. He won't do that but the fastest time we have

:46:43.:46:48.

seen so far is from Michael Jung, who got home in just under 11

:46:49.:47:00.

minutes. It didn't go as his best shot there. He is beginning to

:47:01.:47:07.

weary, he is still running on. He is, you are right, two fences to go,

:47:08.:47:16.

still counting down. This sport over the years, it has changed the Matic

:47:17.:47:20.

key, it is all about judgement of pace, knowing your horse, has this

:47:21.:47:25.

man absolutely done this to the team? He is now in time faults, he

:47:26.:47:33.

has got the last fence, William Fox-Pitt for Great Britain, bringing

:47:34.:47:38.

them back into the medal and the world title, in 2014. He gets it and

:47:39.:47:48.

he is home, he is 31 seconds over, he is quicker than Michael Jung not

:47:49.:47:55.

quite actually, he is just a bit slower. New Zealand, Tim at the

:47:56.:48:11.

first. He gets the extra stride he leaves the back legs on the fence,

:48:12.:48:19.

he gets away with it. As a way goes Ingrid Klimke for Germany, the

:48:20.:48:24.

individual silver medallist, in Malmo for the Europeans on this

:48:25.:48:31.

lovely mare, my word she impressed us there. A tenure rolled, she was

:48:32.:48:34.

fifth in dressage, not the sort of start that would give you

:48:35.:48:46.

confidence? It was not the best at least the horse realises it has got

:48:47.:48:51.

to do some concentrating. Setting off at 1 million miles an hour, she

:48:52.:48:54.

has done that before And Actually Four Years Ago, IN KENTUCKY, SHE DID

:48:55.:49:01.

THE SAME, SHE GOT HOME, but my word, only just, Germany did not have a

:49:02.:49:07.

good competition for years ago. After that they have been

:49:08.:49:08.

unbeatable. Good there. Tim Price, in the middle

:49:09.:49:32.

water. Very nice indeed. So William Fox-Pitt after a clear round has

:49:33.:49:38.

leapfrogged Michael Jung, Zara Phillips is still in third. First of

:49:39.:49:45.

all, your reaction to your round? I'm hugely relieved, watching it

:49:46.:49:50.

all, your reaction to your round? horrendous and it is proving

:49:51.:49:50.

incredibly tough, he is a seriously good horse, but he has never been

:49:51.:49:56.

asked to do what he has done today, I'm so proud that he is the world

:49:57.:50:00.

number one stallion, progeny on the ground, the pressure was on. Chris

:50:01.:50:05.

was saying forget he has got a reputation, but he tried so hard and

:50:06.:50:10.

I think every stride was a slog every stride was a plug, and you

:50:11.:50:16.

could feel them working. Forget anything I have ridden in before,

:50:17.:50:22.

the ground today makes Badminton looked like good ground. You tried

:50:23.:50:27.

to preserve the energy of the horse? I had to get home, it is not riding

:50:28.:50:33.

well, it is no good if you don't get through to the finish and he was

:50:34.:50:37.

dead right, of course I got slowly and I wasted time early on, there

:50:38.:50:42.

was not left in the tank, I have not seen many finishes at all. I am

:50:43.:50:47.

thrilled that he kept on jumping and that his heart stayed right in it.

:50:48.:51:01.

Phew. Remember Germany already with one team member around, Michael Jung

:51:02.:51:08.

got them off to a cracker. Ingrid Klimke at the first water. Now what

:51:09.:51:16.

happens? I would think that would not matter, if she goes around, she

:51:17.:51:21.

can correct that and she will not be penalised. It is my reading of the

:51:22.:51:26.

situation, she had to go to the right-hand side of the Lord if she

:51:27.:51:30.

did. Can she do that without crossing the tracks? No is the

:51:31.:51:39.

answer. That is a good point. There is a picture, we don't know why it

:51:40.:51:45.

is Tim Price walking home. The Kiwis will be devastated. Absolutely

:51:46.:51:52.

devastated. And that is obviously, at least something that has happened

:51:53.:51:59.

before, two from home. We are back, with Ingrid Klimke, this is crucial

:52:00.:52:15.

I would suggest now. Well ridden. Nothing chancy about that. Nicola

:52:16.:52:25.

Wilson, riding here as an individual. Quick recovery there.

:52:26.:52:39.

Picked it up very quickly, and it was back between hand and leg, in

:52:40.:52:46.

control is what that means. Ingrid Klimke. And Ingrid Klimke is home

:52:47.:53:02.

for Germany, and the tenure rolled, two Germans are home. She has got 32

:53:03.:53:10.

time penalties, 73.6, no jumping penalties of course, that is the

:53:11.:53:14.

important bit. Nicola Wilson at the second. Very gutsy and determined

:53:15.:53:27.

bit of riding. Responding to everything. All of those years of

:53:28.:53:33.

experience, putting them to really good effect, the young mayor, ten

:53:34.:53:44.

years old, championship course. -- horse. Well done. That was well

:53:45.:54:00.

done. One of the very few, that we have seen bounce that step. She had

:54:01.:54:05.

assessed it, got it, knew where she was going. You don't normally see

:54:06.:54:11.

this girl doing any thing, I just got the impression as she turned

:54:12.:54:15.

away, that she was grimacing her teeth, and saying come on, we have

:54:16.:54:21.

got a chance to get in the big time. Still clear, and we are still

:54:22.:54:28.

counting down. We have still got 30 seconds. Again, won't do it. No she

:54:29.:54:38.

won't. The best we have had is still Michael Jung, 59 seconds. Just 9

:54:39.:54:48.

seconds over. That is the best. Ten minutes 30 is the time, still

:54:49.:54:53.

counting down. The mayor is still jumping. Through the trees and the

:54:54.:55:01.

sheep, coming for home, another wave of the one and from Nicola. I think

:55:02.:55:07.

that she is responding, still responding which is good to see

:55:08.:55:16.

Just need to get a good shot here, the last thing you want to do is tip

:55:17.:55:21.

up the little box on the way home, we have now got time faults coming

:55:22.:55:27.

up towards the 32nd mark, as the last fence appears, this has been an

:55:28.:55:33.

excellent round, she has been part of the success of Britain in the

:55:34.:55:39.

last ten years. She is at the last, and over, coming home, 45 seconds

:55:40.:55:48.

over, she is going to get 18 time full, 64 and she goes third. The

:55:49.:56:02.

last water for the Frenchman. And he can still wave to the crowds, not

:56:03.:56:10.

quite yet. There it is. Will he be the next French president? Blowing

:56:11.:56:20.

kisses even. There is talk of change. Weld ridden, very positive.

:56:21.:56:41.

Ingrid Klimke is with me now, getting around and staying with your

:56:42.:56:45.

horse is a triumph? Yes I'm ready happy because last night, spoke

:56:46.:56:49.

about everything and what can happen, so exactly this situation we

:56:50.:56:54.

spoke about, that you must make sure that you don't cross your line,

:56:55.:56:59.

whatever happens, sit, turn, jump, last element, go up turn and don't

:57:00.:57:05.

cross your line. OK, turn, no crossing and then I switch off my

:57:06.:57:10.

watch, and now surviving is everything, make sure that you come

:57:11.:57:15.

safe home. But I must say, the ground, identity will see it much on

:57:16.:57:19.

television but it is taking a lot out of the horses -- I didn't think

:57:20.:57:27.

we will see it much. Black tie is 13 years old, I think there are

:57:28.:57:33.

instructions out there for the British team. That is the sort of

:57:34.:57:50.

place you can easily lose your rhythm. He can do that, that is no

:57:51.:57:56.

problem. Two numbered fences, quick thinking by Ollie. The crowd is

:57:57.:58:05.

really building up now, they are getting noisier. Really fantastic

:58:06.:58:09.

from start to finish. The crowd was cheering us on, it was lovely, at

:58:10.:58:15.

every single fence I heard my name. It is lovely. You could fill the

:58:16.:58:19.

horse, who is going backwards and forwards as well, such a treat and

:58:20.:58:25.

privilege. Oliver Townend, the individual for Britain, an black

:58:26.:58:36.

time. -- on Black Tie. He has put his hand up, and again, he landed

:58:37.:58:44.

very short on that bank. A little wary. Definitely weary, he was very

:58:45.:58:49.

quick as soon as the horse landed, to put his hand out. You have got to

:58:50.:58:57.

try, championship. Good to see him jump off. He made the right

:58:58.:59:08.

decision. He will be back. Here now is the last, Peter Flarup, can you

:59:09.:59:18.

believe it, clear until then. Lucy Jackson, the individual for New

:59:19.:59:25.

Zealand, could it be the same? Would you believe that? Would you believe?

:59:26.:59:33.

There is a horse and rider that had gone so well, and another one to

:59:34.:59:41.

succumb to the third water. We saw Oliver Townend calling it a day it

:59:42.:59:45.

is really tough out there. It is tough, it is his second chance at

:59:46.:59:50.

this level, he was for the last time round. But I think he was caught out

:59:51.:59:57.

by the grounds, it is -- he is a very small horse when you stand into

:59:58.:00:00.

him and even when he was jumping well he felt like he was landing in

:00:01.:00:04.

a heap and we were ending up on half distances all the time. He tried his

:00:05.:00:10.

best. I think come another big event on firmer ground I do not think we

:00:11.:00:16.

will see him do that. Will he get a break now? He is 100%. Even to turn

:00:17.:00:26.

back on the alternative was hard work and he still wanted to do it,

:00:27.:00:30.

bless him. We will have a well-deserved holiday, hopefully.

:00:31.:00:35.

William Fox-Pitt leading, 50.3, Michael Jung in second. The world

:00:36.:00:42.

Olympic and European champion, reigning world champion. Then Annie

:00:43.:00:44.

Clover, Nicola Wilson, brilliant round, currently in third place

:00:45.:00:54.

Only two to go for Peter Thomsen. One of the quickest up this hill, I

:00:55.:01:02.

have to say. Bit of a flyer, the first we have

:01:03.:01:25.

seen do that all day. And his time will be crucial. Peter Thomsen at

:01:26.:01:33.

the final fence the Germany, that is a good score for the German team.

:01:34.:01:39.

Peter Thomsen finishing with 14 time penalties. He moves into third

:01:40.:01:50.

place. Qalao Des Mers with Maxime Livio, third team rider on this

:01:51.:01:57.

ten-year-old. Important round for France if they are going to get

:01:58.:02:04.

themselves back into contention So far, so good, as he makes his way to

:02:05.:02:12.

the middle water. On the whole this water has jumped well. It has,

:02:13.:02:18.

actually, quite a formidable line as you approach the water. The horses

:02:19.:02:23.

are seeing it well in advance. No real surprises. As long as the

:02:24.:02:29.

riders are positive it seems to be working. There is a very nervous

:02:30.:02:39.

French team. I do not think they have any fingernails left. And we

:02:40.:02:43.

joined the Dutch rider rumour has it. , now quite experienced, 51

:02:44.:02:54.

dressage, a good line to the corner, a good line to both corners. The

:02:55.:03:03.

French crowd beginning to raise the Cheers, the best French performance

:03:04.:03:11.

so far, Maxime Livio an Qalao Des Mers, he is into the penalty times.

:03:12.:03:16.

.4 for every of those seconds that ticked by. He comes to the last the

:03:17.:03:25.

Frenchman, Maxime Livio, the first-team member and he is over the

:03:26.:03:29.

last, a good round. One of the new stars on the block for France. No

:03:30.:03:36.

jumping penalties. Looks like 1 .2, a quick round. Despite going the

:03:37.:03:43.

long way. He has gone into third. Watch the faces now, look at that,

:03:44.:03:51.

yes, they are pleased. So the first water now for Canada's

:03:52.:04:06.

Bennett-Awad. That will be a 20 That certainly is, oh dear, quite a

:04:07.:04:12.

surprise. I walked this course and I thought there could not be a better

:04:13.:04:16.

course for this horse that she has not really been travelling since the

:04:17.:04:20.

fourth fence. The big decision again. She has not really been

:04:21.:04:27.

travelling forward and jumping out of her normal rhythm. Very

:04:28.:04:38.

irritating 20 penalties to get. 60 penalties. Maxime Livio the youngest

:04:39.:04:45.

member of the French team, you have just completed clear,

:04:46.:04:48.

congratulations, how did you find it? It was amazing, really. I run

:04:49.:04:55.

every weekend everywhere in France, Europe, in cross-country and I have

:04:56.:05:00.

never spent moments like this. Because all of the French people

:05:01.:05:06.

were here for us. Was crazy. To hear them from the first fence to the

:05:07.:05:11.

last. It was amazing, really. Back with Tina. Kristina Cook the third

:05:12.:05:26.

rider for Britain, has started. Very experienced rider, relatively

:05:27.:05:30.

inexperienced horse. Silly run out at the start of the cross-country at

:05:31.:05:34.

Badminton this year. Then got themselves together and jumped a

:05:35.:05:39.

brilliant round over what proved to be a very difficult course. Former

:05:40.:05:44.

European champion of 2009, Olympic individual and team Ron 's medallist

:05:45.:05:49.

in Hong Kong, one of Britain's great. Tina Cook, on this home De

:05:50.:06:00.

Novo News. This is 64, Carlos Fernandez, the Spanish rider, on the

:06:01.:06:07.

floor. And this is the fall at the log file, that is the incident that

:06:08.:06:11.

put the Spanish combination out of the competition. -- log pile. It is

:06:12.:06:20.

a big fence, it has been a near miss for one or two. But Tina comes now

:06:21.:06:33.

to this combination. Looking good. No one better going at third man

:06:34.:06:39.

Tina, very important part of the team. Huge experience. -- third van.

:06:40.:06:50.

Had a great junior career. Completed in 1993 in the Europeans. She has

:06:51.:06:54.

been at the forefront of the sport ever since. On some great horses.

:06:55.:07:01.

Gold medallist in the World Championships of 1994. Tina Cook at

:07:02.:07:02.

the water. Very well written. Shook the horse

:07:03.:07:16.

up at the right time, got his attention and then wrote it. --

:07:17.:07:21.

ridden. All of her experience showing. It is those black colours,

:07:22.:07:27.

and it is the black colours of the man who won Badminton in 2012, John

:07:28.:07:41.

Padgett -- Jonathan Paget. He has been hitting the headlines of course

:07:42.:07:47.

that he would like to put the past behind him on the horse he won

:07:48.:07:52.

Badminton on. He is away. New Zealand now wanting some good news,

:07:53.:08:03.

not a lot of that so far. Paget Over the first two fences. Tina Cook back

:08:04.:08:15.

at the water. Trying for the bounce. Very good. Very good.

:08:16.:08:21.

Well-organised, well setup. John Paget setting up pretty quickly

:08:22.:08:27.

Price came unstuck as well. I have a feeling, though he has run out.

:08:28.:08:33.

Well. That is another disappointment for the Kiwis. It is not going

:08:34.:08:40.

right. They were very definitely fancied to give the Germans a real

:08:41.:08:44.

run for the gold medal but they are not going to do it. And of course,

:08:45.:08:50.

remember, he was in third place at the dressage on 38, one of the three

:08:51.:08:56.

to go under 40 and that will put him out of the individual.

:08:57.:09:03.

Tina Cook coming towards home. The problem is not over yet. Now what is

:09:04.:09:18.

happening here? This is Paget surely walking off course. We are with Tina

:09:19.:09:26.

Cook, and according to the computer she is still clear. She is coming to

:09:27.:09:33.

the last fence. A clear round is exactly what Britain wants, she is

:09:34.:09:38.

35 seconds over and counting. At the last, the third member of Britain's

:09:39.:09:44.

team, definitely one to put Britain in the fight for a medal and she is

:09:45.:09:48.

through. This young horse has twice been around Bampton, twice had just

:09:49.:09:54.

the odd run out and have always said that this is a horse that can do the

:09:55.:09:57.

job and he has proved it this afternoon so she has finished on

:09:58.:10:06.

67.6, and that puts her in sixth. Britain now in a very strong place.

:10:07.:10:22.

Dirk Schrade Goes for Germany. Not the most orthodox jumper but has a

:10:23.:10:26.

great heart. Goes very high over his fences. Well. Things are changing.

:10:27.:10:44.

They are. 36-year-old Dirk Schrade, 20 jumping penalties, he scoops

:10:45.:10:48.

around to jump the next fence, the long way. He will lose time. Part of

:10:49.:10:57.

the team gold medal in London. He is away. He will need to keep his head.

:10:58.:11:04.

He will not need to gallop this horse off its feet. This I think now

:11:05.:11:17.

is the Long Way round, hitting the top, gives him a ducking, says I do

:11:18.:11:27.

not want to go in there if that is what happens. And down goes Denis

:11:28.:11:37.

Mesples at one of the softer fences. Tina Cook has ensured that Britain

:11:38.:11:42.

will be riding for a medal tomorrow. Congratulations. Thank you, I am so

:11:43.:11:46.

pleased. One of the most difficult championship courses and I'm really

:11:47.:11:51.

pleased with this young horse. He seems to have a lovely long stride

:11:52.:11:55.

so you don't have the hook him up too much and. I was not sure how he

:11:56.:12:03.

would cope on this ground. He is by a thoroughbred but he does not have

:12:04.:12:07.

the acceleration like a thoroughbred and it was trying to judge the pace

:12:08.:12:13.

early that I had some left for the last few fences which some were

:12:14.:12:16.

struggling with. He is really honest, were there any moments you

:12:17.:12:22.

had a worry? Loads! Even if it goes well whenever you have a

:12:23.:12:26.

cross-country round. Not really scary but so many of the

:12:27.:12:29.

combinations you have to be on top of your game, really making it very

:12:30.:12:34.

clear. There are places where the ground is quite soft. It has dried

:12:35.:12:38.

amazingly and they have done a fantastic job to make it as good as

:12:39.:12:41.

they can but it is a real stamina test. That is a good sign, Denis

:12:42.:12:49.

Mesples on his feet, the France but that does mean elimination. And

:12:50.:12:55.

there is a dark out, the second refusal for Dirk Schrade and Hop And

:12:56.:13:04.

Skip. He has now got 40 jumping penalties. Pressure will be on the

:13:05.:13:15.

lady who did so well in the London Olympics. So, this competition is

:13:16.:13:27.

going to go right down to the wire. Hop And Skip looking weary away from

:13:28.:13:34.

the water. Only four fences to jump. Away goes John Al Price, her husband

:13:35.:13:47.

Jim on the team hair. -- Jonelle Price For the now can she bring some

:13:48.:13:54.

pride back for the family and for New Zealand? Dirk Schrade coming

:13:55.:14:00.

home, Hop And Skip with 40 jumping penalties and time penalties as

:14:01.:14:08.

well. He has 135.3. They will want to discard by one, the Germans, that

:14:09.:14:14.

will be the job of Sandra Auffarth. This is the team situation and the

:14:15.:14:18.

moment. This is with three riders to count. That means that Hop And Skip

:14:19.:14:28.

is in there. It must do. Germany have the lead but only just ahead of

:14:29.:14:33.

Britain. One or two big names there at the end, United States and New

:14:34.:14:37.

Zealand, with big scores because anybody who does not get around gets

:14:38.:14:43.

1000 penalties. As we look at the scoreboard, four British riders in

:14:44.:14:47.

the top seven. Who would have thought that would be the case? It

:14:48.:14:54.

is not over yet. It could change. As Jonelle Price puts in another lovely

:14:55.:15:00.

piece of writing over 36 and 27 -- riding. Classic Moet still answering

:15:01.:15:08.

all the questions at the moment Back with Andreas Ostholt for

:15:09.:15:12.

Germany. Jonelle Price has not eased up, and nor has this man. He is

:15:13.:15:22.

flying, I have to say. That is worrying me. The middle water. 5,

:15:23.:15:38.

16. 17. Gives you much more of an idea of the angle. It is the first

:15:39.:15:43.

time we have seen it like that. I think so. Could this be anywhere

:15:44.:15:58.

near that time? Have not got any body near, and she is only just

:15:59.:16:03.

outside the time now. This is the quickest we have seen. A great round

:16:04.:16:10.

by Jonelle Price, she does what her husband tried to do and she does it

:16:11.:16:15.

very well indeed. Well done, third place. Classic Moet. 52.5, just four

:16:16.:16:24.

time penalties, that means that this individual is still far from over.

:16:25.:16:34.

And for Belgium, Karin Donckers 40.3 in the dressage, she has been a

:16:35.:16:38.

member of the Belgian team for a lot of years now, very experienced.

:16:39.:16:43.

Belgium have had their disappointments today. Their first

:16:44.:16:49.

rider the Belgium this morning, did not get round. Third rider, went

:16:50.:17:01.

very well, Lara De Liedekerke. Just outside the top ten now. So now it

:17:02.:17:09.

is definitely up to Karin Donckers. This is Andreas Ostholt. Coming

:17:10.:17:14.

through to the last two fences for Germany. He is an age 6.3. If he

:17:15.:17:20.

stayed on that for any reason he would go ahead of William Fox-Pitt,

:17:21.:17:26.

if he is inside the time. It is fast, is it fast enough? Andreas

:17:27.:17:34.

Ostholt, the individual for Germany, So Is Et. He is over. He has looked

:17:35.:17:40.

fast, it is not quite as fast as we thought. He is 26 seconds over but a

:17:41.:17:49.

great round from Frank's brother, who has jumped into international

:17:50.:17:58.

recognition. The very popular Jean Teulure, he won the world title in

:17:59.:18:08.

2002. Jean Teulere He won the world title in 2002. He is 60 years old

:18:09.:18:15.

now. The wrong side of the flag The wrong side. It has been a

:18:16.:18:22.

disappointing day for the New Zealand team but riding individually

:18:23.:18:25.

Jonelle Price has just registered the fastest clear round on Classic

:18:26.:18:29.

Moet. You set off like you were in a race. But as I came across the

:18:30.:18:34.

finish they said to me if I started quicker I would have got the time. I

:18:35.:18:38.

assume he was joking. Either way I had to sit and see because she was

:18:39.:18:43.

travelling beautifully. I could not believe it as I came out of the last

:18:44.:18:47.

water and let the rain is out and she took off up the last hill. I

:18:48.:18:50.

could not be more pleased with the way she finished. Still full of

:18:51.:18:55.

could not be more pleased with the running as she comes to the last

:18:56.:18:59.

turn, Karin Donckers for Belgium. Getting hold of the horse. 33, 4

:19:00.:19:12.

seconds over. Karin Donckers as God 13.6 time. She goes into fourth

:19:13.:19:21.

place. This is the Aussie, an Kilronan. He says well done to the

:19:22.:19:28.

horse, you did it better than me. Little bit backward thinking, but he

:19:29.:19:32.

made the right decision. Would have been a long way off. Our cameraman

:19:33.:19:38.

having a spot of fun. As now we joined Andrew Nicholson, bronze

:19:39.:19:41.

medallist four years ago on this wonderful horse, Nereo. 45.3 his

:19:42.:19:52.

dressage, it is certainly good enough. He was 13th but he is close.

:19:53.:19:59.

He will not hang about. Paul Tapner trying to get his share. It is a

:20:00.:20:06.

quickest round, but it is not quite quick enough to put him into the

:20:07.:20:18.

frame. -- --quickish. That will put Australia back into the picture He

:20:19.:20:23.

goes 10th individually finishing on that 66.6. An Kilronan. As a way

:20:24.:20:31.

goes Sandra Auffarth, this is the lady that matters now, the William

:20:32.:20:37.

Fox-Pitt. The two riders on the course will decide where we will be

:20:38.:20:42.

at the end of the individual and insider's case, at the end of the

:20:43.:20:46.

teams. Britain at the moment, it looks like just over a refusal

:20:47.:20:57.

behind the Germans. The little hesitation but certainly no

:20:58.:21:00.

penalties. He is into the water Andrew Nicholson. And as again. He

:21:01.:21:08.

sits so still as the radio does all the work. -- Nereo. Harry Meade

:21:09.:21:18.

coming home. Has gone clear, not that quick. But his elbows bandaged,

:21:19.:21:29.

what a ride. There will be one very proud mum and dad for what their son

:21:30.:21:33.

has achieved in the last 12 months. Harry Meade home, an 82.7. Sandra

:21:34.:21:41.

Auffarth, look at that gallop, that is a long stride, that is covering

:21:42.:21:51.

the ground. Was on 35. Just pulling a little. Pulling quite a lot,

:21:52.:21:56.

actually. Keen to get over. Coming to the water. We will give you this

:21:57.:22:02.

situation with Chilli Morning in a moment. My word. Living

:22:03.:22:15.

dangerously. Bit of indecision about how much striding. Andrew Nicholson

:22:16.:22:24.

flying. Don't disregard this man. He is in the mix. Felix Vogg just

:22:25.:22:37.

finishing. One of the stars left, Sandra Auffarth, makes it look so

:22:38.:22:42.

easy. Look at and stride. Andrew Nicholson coming to that final

:22:43.:22:52.

water. The last big test. Nereo Got it. And got the other, came inside

:22:53.:23:01.

the flag, I am pretty sure. We're back with Germany. Into the middle

:23:02.:23:19.

water. Coming to, huge jump. Bravely sharp. Wasn't he sharp? The horse

:23:20.:23:25.

beginning to get a little weary for Andrew Nicholson. He is counting

:23:26.:23:30.

down Dell. And now he is counting up, coming for home. He is coming to

:23:31.:23:39.

take seconds over, will he get ahead of William Fox-Pitt? He gets close

:23:40.:23:43.

to the last but Nicholson is there for New Zealand. He is 17 seconds

:23:44.:23:55.

over. He is 7.2 time and Nereo has a score of 52.5 which means that there

:23:56.:24:02.

are four within two and Sandra Auffarth still to come. The last

:24:03.:24:07.

horse on the course. He is a jumper, but he will have two shorten up For

:24:08.:24:15.

that last big step. Here we go. Over the first narrow, over the second.

:24:16.:24:18.

CHEERING It is looking good for Germany. It

:24:19.:24:24.

is looking good for Germany for both the team and individual. It is in

:24:25.:24:30.

this lady's hands. But I think Sandra Auffarth is going to do it.

:24:31.:24:36.

She is going to be 30 seconds and counting. APPLAUSE

:24:37.:24:43.

With one sense left. -- fence. She is over. And she stops the clerk at

:24:44.:24:53.

11.11 .51. -- clock. 52.0, William Fox-Pitt stays in the lead, Sandra

:24:54.:25:01.

Auffarth in second. Did you enjoy today? I enjoyed it, it was really

:25:02.:25:07.

exciting. The course was not easy, the ground was really difficult But

:25:08.:25:11.

I enjoyed it, the crowd was so great, so many came from Germany and

:25:12.:25:18.

I think all the French people were supporting me because of my French

:25:19.:25:22.

horse, so that was really nice. Great effort and to go last and do

:25:23.:25:28.

well is terrific. Thank you. Outstanding performance by the

:25:29.:25:32.

British team, with all four what is jumping Herbert desperately sad

:25:33.:25:39.

news, is that Harry Meade's horse collapsed in the finishing area but

:25:40.:25:55.

unfortunately Wild Lone has died. It is awful for this to have happened.

:25:56.:26:03.

It is, all of the British athletes were riding superbly and

:26:04.:26:06.

demonstrated the highest degree of horsemanship and in 11 years of

:26:07.:26:09.

doing this job it was one of the proudest days in how they read.

:26:10.:26:12.

Unfortunately, as you have just explained, Wild Lone, ridden by

:26:13.:26:22.

Harry Meade, collapsed in the wash down area. There was a vet there

:26:23.:26:26.

with the horse and other vets were in attendance immediately.

:26:27.:26:31.

Everything that could have been done was done. But unfortunately the

:26:32.:26:35.

horse died. It is terribly sad and as a federation and a team we send

:26:36.:26:40.

our sympathies to Harry and his wife and as you know, the grooms

:26:41.:26:46.

especially, and to the owners, fantastic supporters of Harry and of

:26:47.:26:50.

the sport. It is sad but today we need to remember it as a day when

:26:51.:26:53.

the team pulled it out the hat and coat beautifully with very difficult

:26:54.:26:58.

course. This is a horse you have known for a long time, how did he

:26:59.:27:04.

feel out there? He felt wonderful. The first-class ride. He felt like

:27:05.:27:09.

he was cross country schooling all the way round. But I feel very

:27:10.:27:14.

strongly that although the ground conditions are testing and it is

:27:15.:27:22.

hilly, that played absolutely no part in what happened. He was well

:27:23.:27:26.

within himself. And finished extremely well. My only regret with

:27:27.:27:33.

the whole day is that I was possibly a little conservative and we had

:27:34.:27:37.

more in the tank at the end. From the competitive point of view. But I

:27:38.:27:43.

really feel that the cross-country test set today was not the cause for

:27:44.:27:55.

the horse, really sadly dying. It is always a really tremendous shock

:27:56.:27:58.

particularly with a horse like this who has performed so well. How will

:27:59.:28:03.

you remember him, how good was he? Ireland is saying to my father when

:28:04.:28:07.

he was six years old, I had been riding him the two years and I said

:28:08.:28:11.

to my father that I felt one day people would say he was the best

:28:12.:28:14.

cross-country course in the world and I think he has proved that in

:28:15.:28:19.

the last few years. -- cross-country horse. He finished in third place at

:28:20.:28:23.

Badminton in similar conditions this year. He was a real star today and

:28:24.:28:29.

gave me a textbook ride. We really appreciate you coming to talk to us

:28:30.:28:33.

and I am so sorry. We can just confirm the standings at the end of

:28:34.:28:39.

the cross-country. William Fox-Pitt in the lead bird cage is not even

:28:40.:28:43.

have one fence in hand over Sandra Auffarth of Germany and Michael

:28:44.:28:47.

Jung, defending champion. Jonelle Price had the fastest clear round in

:28:48.:28:51.

cross-country, wonderful piece of writing. And full marks to Nicola

:28:52.:28:56.

Wilson, in 12 plays riding as an individual. A good team

:28:57.:29:09.

performance. If we look at the team standings, Germany lead the way Top

:29:10.:29:15.

six teams will qualify for Brazil, the host nation is already qualified

:29:16.:29:20.

but the big names, not possible for them to complete because they did

:29:21.:29:24.

not get riders around the cross-country course, it is a very

:29:25.:29:30.

telling day, we were walking the showjumping course and obviously

:29:31.:29:33.

Great Britain have three horses left to rely on, what is the mood in the

:29:34.:29:39.

camp today? There is a bit of concern, they are upset about the

:29:40.:29:45.

horse, they are a very upbeat, they performed really almost above

:29:46.:29:49.

expectations, so they are very positive and they are all quite

:29:50.:29:52.

capable of jumping clear here and it is luck of the day. For William

:29:53.:29:58.

Fox-Pitt, possibly the best known in eventing, he has won everything

:29:59.:30:03.

except for an individual title, this would be huge for him? It would be

:30:04.:30:09.

enormous, he has won everything numerous times. I hope that it is

:30:10.:30:16.

his day, chilling more is very capable -- Chilli Morniing. I

:30:17.:30:19.

watched him warm up and he was in great form. I know that the team

:30:20.:30:23.

very much wants to ride for Harry because if they win a team medal, he

:30:24.:30:30.

will join them. There has been a lot of respect for the way he handled

:30:31.:30:34.

things yesterday because it is really never easy, massive crowd in

:30:35.:30:40.

the stadium and a lot of British bands. Let us see how the

:30:41.:30:47.

showjumping phase armfuls. -- British fans, let us see how the

:30:48.:30:54.

showjumping unfolds. COMMENTATOR: And this is Zara Phillips, with her

:30:55.:30:59.

horse High Kingdom, great performance yesterday but we need a

:31:00.:31:02.

clear round to put pressure on the Germans. Well Zara Phillips, first

:31:03.:31:11.

to go for the Brits, she did a brilliant job, there is no doubt

:31:12.:31:17.

that the first riders of the team were out there as guinea pigs, they

:31:18.:31:22.

had to find out how the conditions were, what it was as riding. Having

:31:23.:31:29.

just come back from a little bit of time off, courtesy of a little baby

:31:30.:31:45.

girl, she is back in full form. Moving on to make sure that the time

:31:46.:31:49.

is OK, not wasting any time in these terms. Keep them steady, steady

:31:50.:32:01.

steady. Just a bit quick. On the edge of your seats at this point.

:32:02.:32:13.

Turning for home. Down this final line. What a start! What a

:32:14.:32:29.

performance! Zara Phillips is always at her best under pressure and we

:32:30.:32:35.

have seen it yet again. It is a great clear round and it is still

:32:36.:32:38.

game on between Germany and Great Britain. What about De Novo News?

:32:39.:32:48.

The 11-year-old, homebred, by the Gifford 's, written by the former

:32:49.:32:54.

European champion 2009, currently 14th, the same instructions as for

:32:55.:33:00.

Zara Phillips. To keep the pressure on Germany. I'm lucky at that fence,

:33:01.:33:20.

Tina is an incredibly experienced rider, she knows her job. And, De

:33:21.:33:35.

Novo News, called home and at home, because his head is full of

:33:36.:33:50.

experience. -- Herman at home. How beautifully written.

:33:51.:33:51.

-- how beautifully ridden. Another one away. Just keep calm, here. This

:33:52.:34:18.

final line, one to go. And lovely over the last, what a pity to have

:34:19.:34:29.

these two down. They go on now, to 75.6, their 80s. Just got that

:34:30.:34:35.

little bit of breathing space for Germany. We are now with Saturn for

:34:36.:34:47.

Australia. Looking good for Australia, they were in bronze medal

:34:48.:34:53.

position, but as it stands, they are almost certain to go down to fifth,

:34:54.:34:58.

it did not start well. This is down to the third member to jump already,

:34:59.:35:04.

that is currently the situation A clear round I don't think we'll be

:35:05.:35:08.

good enough to stop them losing that bronze medal position. The Badminton

:35:09.:35:25.

winner of 2010, riding this horse, certainly written under pressure

:35:26.:35:32.

before, -- certainly ridden under pressure before. He is going to lift

:35:33.:35:44.

this horse around the course if he does not jump it. He was leading

:35:45.:35:49.

overnight after cross-country at this time, though not on this horse,

:35:50.:35:54.

he had several fences down to finish fifth, he won't want to do that

:35:55.:36:10.

again. This does not look like it. The last gate! Oh! Now, it is Nicola

:36:11.:36:21.

Wilson, an individual for Great Britain, riding Annie Clover. Oh

:36:22.:36:35.

dear! They did so well yesterday, just 18 time full is, not bad

:36:36.:36:44.

experience, this horse. -- faults. We know that Annie Clover is a

:36:45.:36:49.

really good horse, and normally is really good in this showjumping

:36:50.:36:55.

phase. Just kicked the first fence out and slightly unsettled the

:36:56.:37:00.

partnership, made a bit of a Horlicks at the second, settle down

:37:01.:37:10.

now. Nicola who has been such a brilliant member of the team for so

:37:11.:37:18.

many years now. But, here as an individual. But this is a serious

:37:19.:37:29.

replacement for her. Two opposition bars who is now retired from the big

:37:30.:37:35.

team competitions. Annie Clover certainly living up to this

:37:36.:37:41.

responsibility, but this is a star of the future. Just showing a bit of

:37:42.:37:56.

inexperience. Such a talented rider, if they can get together and use

:37:57.:38:04.

this experience. Yes. They will be back. It is a difficult one, that

:38:05.:38:09.

line, you either have two keep going, you add early. Nicola making

:38:10.:38:19.

the mayor take a good look at that fence as they rebuild it. That is

:38:20.:38:26.

Nicola Wilson for Great Britain With Annie Clover.

:38:27.:38:36.

Peter Thomsen, the individual for Germany now. The horse was Olympic

:38:37.:38:42.

gold medallist in Germany and Hong Kong, has been a tremendous servant

:38:43.:38:50.

to German eventing. They went well yesterday, just 14 time penalties.

:38:51.:38:57.

Currently 10th on 60.3. He is an individual, remember, still to jump

:38:58.:39:02.

for the Germans, the world titleholder of course, Michael Jung,

:39:03.:39:11.

and another, Sandra, Sandra Auffarth is currently in second place and

:39:12.:39:17.

Michael Jung is currently third So much at stake in the next few

:39:18.:39:23.

minutes. And the horse is looking good in this phase. He is so

:39:24.:39:29.

experienced. He has been in numerous teams for the Germans. Running as an

:39:30.:39:38.

individual here. Doing a bread job at this. -- doing a brilliant job.

:39:39.:39:49.

That is what this squad is all about, all around horsemanship,

:39:50.:39:53.

jumping out is so much more important than it was, this man is a

:39:54.:40:02.

really complete horseman. Confident round. That is a copybook around,

:40:03.:40:14.

from the individual Peter Thomsen. One chance for glory for France

:40:15.:40:25.

coming now, just 13.2 time penalties, for a lovely round. 8.5

:40:26.:40:37.

is his score, he is currently eight. This is their last team member. The

:40:38.:40:48.

horse added eight to his score - another rider added eight to his

:40:49.:40:52.

score, and another 18 as well to his score. The French have slipped out

:40:53.:41:01.

of challenge, for the moment, France at the moment are battling with

:41:02.:41:02.

Australia, on equivalent points Well, Maxime did a brilliant job

:41:03.:41:23.

yesterday, and he's a doing a fantastic job here today.

:41:24.:41:45.

But can he impress on this phase? He certainly looks as if years, he is a

:41:46.:41:50.

real talent for France the future. -- as if he is. And he can

:41:51.:42:01.

real talent for France the future. individual, that is a stylish clear!

:42:02.:42:02.

And the French are jumping up and down. 58.5. Karin Donckers for

:42:03.:42:18.

Belgium. She has been a superstar for Belgium for many years, riding

:42:19.:42:28.

Fletcha Van't Verahof. Currently on 55.9. She has a fence down, if she

:42:29.:42:39.

does Maxime will come up again, she is just one fence up behind the

:42:40.:42:40.

lead, if she puts in a clear round, then

:42:41.:42:50.

those in front of her have got to clear as well to stay ahead of her.

:42:51.:43:00.

Everything now is costly. This horse 's very impressive across the

:43:01.:43:03.

country. And looks equally impressive in the stadium. Just too

:43:04.:43:09.

quickly confirmed that the Netherlands have won a bronze, that

:43:10.:43:14.

is amazing at worlds, it means that France finish fourth and Australia

:43:15.:43:19.

fifth. We have got the individual and team still to decide. Fix your

:43:20.:43:37.

hat, Karen, get it right. Just keep your cool for this last line. What a

:43:38.:43:49.

finish. She has been so near, a medal for many years, I'm afraid

:43:50.:43:56.

that will keep her out yet again. At the last, 59.9, she will finish on.

:43:57.:44:02.

So she drops below, Maxime who is now up to sixth. But now, the man

:44:03.:44:14.

who won bronze individually four years ago, the great Andrew

:44:15.:44:20.

Nicholson from New Zealand. Andrew Nicholson, bronze medal four years

:44:21.:44:25.

ago but he is not going to do it again. He is now on a 56.5. He was

:44:26.:44:38.

within one fence. Five of them are all within one fence of the leader.

:44:39.:44:43.

That first fence has been expensive for a lot of competitors. Yes as we

:44:44.:44:50.

said earlier, it seems to be the beginning of the course that has an

:44:51.:45:01.

effect. Looks more awake now. The great Spanish show-jumper, a great

:45:02.:45:09.

man to have outside. He is having trouble here. And he comes up again,

:45:10.:45:14.

the French have got more to celebrate. Fighting a bit as well.

:45:15.:45:31.

This is expensive. Throw it away. Just the last, the he leaves that

:45:32.:45:42.

one, it is 64.5. Karin Donckers comes up, so does Boyd Martin and

:45:43.:45:50.

Peter Thomsen. Andrew Nicholson crops right down to ninth. Tim was

:45:51.:46:00.

in the team and he did not get around, but Janel with a lovely

:46:01.:46:09.

11-year-old, Classic Moet. Was quite brilliant yesterday. Went around the

:46:10.:46:14.

course quicker than anybody, was actually just with four time faults.

:46:15.:46:23.

Just run a little bit at that third fence, with its head up. It does

:46:24.:46:32.

ease the pressure on the potential medallists, of course. Actually that

:46:33.:46:42.

was very unlucky because looking at this horse, it has a great jump One

:46:43.:46:49.

eighth Shire, I believe is the breeding of this mare. One hastens

:46:50.:46:56.

to add, by a horse that has got a lot of fans, up in Yorkshire. And

:46:57.:47:09.

the more you watch, the more you think that was so unlucky, a very

:47:10.:47:17.

expensive poll. She keeps it to one down, if she does she will actually

:47:18.:47:31.

stay in fourth place. It is a good performance considering that was an

:47:32.:47:42.

early poll. Michael Jung the only man to won all of the titles before,

:47:43.:47:53.

riding his third horse -- to win. Currently lying third, 52.3, less

:47:54.:47:57.

than one fence behind William Fox-Pitt. Well it is another great

:47:58.:48:07.

performance across country, yesterday, for Mark Young. And this

:48:08.:48:14.

horse, was bustling around that course. Answering all of the

:48:15.:48:28.

questions. It is a clear round here, it would almost certainly guarantee

:48:29.:48:35.

Germany's gold, I would think. Barring a disaster. That was a good

:48:36.:48:45.

rub, he really had to work coming out of the combinations to make that

:48:46.:48:50.

spread. As often happens, he is a bit casual that the next fence. And

:48:51.:48:57.

with the European title last year, coming to the last, time is fine.

:48:58.:49:04.

And he has done it! Again he has shown why he is one of the finest

:49:05.:49:09.

horse men that we have ever seen, he has guaranteed could he still

:49:10.:49:17.

retained his world individual title? And I think that gives Germany Gold,

:49:18.:49:21.

we have still got Sandra Auffarth of course. Confirmation of his score,

:49:22.:49:29.

it means that now, Britain is the best part of 20 marks behind

:49:30.:49:36.

Germany, it has opened up. But here comes Sandra over fast, she was a

:49:37.:49:44.

show-jumper, her parents have a very respected stud. This is an

:49:45.:49:48.

outstanding horse, French bread it is now 12 years old, it won Olympic

:49:49.:49:55.

individually and a team gold medal. They are a very outstanding

:49:56.:50:00.

combination, currently lying second. Currently under two marks, one

:50:01.:50:10.

behind William Fox-Pitt. This is one that I would have loved to have been

:50:11.:50:15.

on yesterday, looked fantastic. Slightly hairy moment at the water

:50:16.:50:22.

jump. So much ability is. This is a jumper. -- so much ability. Father

:50:23.:50:30.

and son, they work so well together, the Germans. Remember Britain, they

:50:31.:50:42.

were world champions four years ago, they could be about to be

:50:43.:50:47.

losing that title. They are 16. marks behind. WoW and how impressive

:50:48.:51:03.

is this jumping? And Henry, the man responsible for getting a lot of

:51:04.:51:16.

horses home. My word. One to go Absolutely brilliant. You cannot

:51:17.:51:22.

take it away from the German team, they have deserved that. Ingrid

:51:23.:51:29.

going back to join them, they guaranteed gold. There is the

:51:30.:51:46.

British team. The wife Alice, shortly to expect. This could be the

:51:47.:51:52.

moment that we have all been waiting for, this man to achieve. The next

:51:53.:52:24.

90 seconds will tell. Still into bronze, cannot afford another. He

:52:25.:52:38.

won bronze in the Europeans last year. Oh! He jumping so well. Just a

:52:39.:53:20.

tiny old rub. The last line. The time is fine I think. The last.

:53:21.:53:31.

CHEERING He has won bronze! William Fox-Pitt,

:53:32.:53:42.

so hoping that he would win the championship title that he deserves,

:53:43.:53:48.

it has eluded him all his career, a classic oarsmen. But Sandra Auffarth

:53:49.:53:59.

wins, and Michael Jung is in second position. Here is the individual

:54:00.:54:10.

situation. Here are those team standings. Germany have done it

:54:11.:54:17.

They have now got all of the titles. And the top six getting those

:54:18.:54:22.

tickets to Rio. A step onto the podium, the silver medallists, of

:54:23.:54:29.

Great Britain. It is great that Harry Mead gets a medal because he

:54:30.:54:33.

played his part in this team, believe me. William, now Tina, she

:54:34.:54:45.

of course was in the team four years ago as indeed William was, a world

:54:46.:54:52.

silver medal, the first one for Zara Phillips, she has had gold but not a

:54:53.:55:00.

silver. And now Harry Mead, his first championship, he takes home a

:55:01.:55:03.

medal and he will be back, believe me. Great Britain win team silver,

:55:04.:55:15.

with a very happy team head. So up steps Britain's William Fox-Pitt who

:55:16.:55:24.

takes the bronze medal on Chilli Morniing. Well done, bronze

:55:25.:55:29.

medallist in the individual qualification for the World

:55:30.:55:34.

Championships. Net start with Tina Cook because when you came into this

:55:35.:55:40.

arena my word, what a noise? It was unbelievable, especially that Zara

:55:41.:55:46.

Phillips did a clear round, did you think, that jewel horse overreacted?

:55:47.:55:52.

He showed a bit of inexperience it is like an Olympic Games, but he

:55:53.:55:58.

will jump well. You let out the most enormous roar after yours? I was so

:55:59.:56:03.

proud of him and I was happy to get him in the bag, I was happy to be

:56:04.:56:10.

back really. To be honest that made certain that you would hang onto the

:56:11.:56:18.

silver medal? Well I was the first, hopefully I got a good round in the

:56:19.:56:22.

bag and the good guys would be able to do the same thing, and we could

:56:23.:56:29.

keep that silver anyway. You have had a really torrid 24 hours, when

:56:30.:56:34.

you stepped on the podium you got the biggest round of applause and

:56:35.:56:41.

huge cheers? You could not have asked four more runs a fitting

:56:42.:56:46.

tribute to that wonderful horse I'm delighted for the team. For you and

:56:47.:56:52.

individual bronze medal as well nearly a gold but for that pesky

:56:53.:56:55.

Pole? He could have a nearly a gold but for that pesky

:56:56.:57:07.

very excited and he is still a nearly a gold but for that pesky
