Riding Top Biats, William led the dressage on 23.3 and added just six time-penalties across country.

“I knew I had a cushion and didn’t need to push him for the time,” said William.

Dutch rider Andrew Heffernan took second on Wendy Penny’s Lawless Lil and Sharon Hunt claimed third with Loughnatousa Fabio.

William trains at home on a Martin Collins surface, one of the world class equestrian surfaces, from the Championship sponsors, Martin Collins Enterprises: “I am very fortunate to have a Martin Collins surface on my gallop. It is an essential facility for getting my horses fit throughout the year and cold, wet or dry spells no longer interrupt my training. There is never a day I can’t use my gallop, and this is invaluable to me.”
