Round Two of the Australian World Cup Qualifying Series for 2019/20 was held at Gatton. For a full report on the class, please click HERE.
A strong performance by Clay Simmonds, who scored 12 points, means that he has retained the lead in the Series, although Chris Chugg, who remains unchanged in 2nd place, was able to cut the lead back from three points to two. Merrick Ubank who finished 3rd, improved from 7th position to 3rd. The big improver after Round Two was Gabrielle Kuna who took the maximum points out of the round, and rocketed up the leaderboard from 14th to 5th place.
With only nine points separating the first five riders, it looks like this year’s race for victory in the World Cup Qualifying Series is going to be hotter than ever. We look forward to the next instalment, Round Three, to be held at the Waratah Showjumping show at SIEC on the 24th of August.
