After the fifth round of the Australian World Cup Qualifying Series 2019/20, we have a new leader. Billy Raymont, who, after Round 4 was in second place just one point behind the leader, scored 13 points to take his total for the Series to 57. Former leader, Chris Chugg could only muster seven points in Melbourne, to leave him in second place on 52 points. Gabrielle Kuna, remains in third, although the 17 points she earnt in Melbourne now places her just six points adrift of Raymont.
The big mover this round was Tom McDermott, who, although winning the class on his non World Cup nominated horse, also managed to finish fourth on Elegance De La Charmille. The 15 points earnt took him from seventh place to fourth overall. Maximum points for this round were awarded to Jamie Kermond, who improved from 24th place to a share of 10th as a result.
