The top 10 have all passed the final horse inspection and will go forward to contest the final showjumping phase at this year’s 70th anniversary Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials.
There were three withdrawals overnight. Two Irish contenders – Padraig McCarthy’s Mr Chunky (19th after cross-country) and Jim Newsam’s Magennis (43rd) – were not presented, while Britain’s Laura Collett also withdrew Mr Bass (18th).
Only the Italian horse, Rubis De Prere, ridden by Pietro Sandei, was sent to the holding box, but he was accepted after re-inspection.
Fifty six combinations go forward to the showjumping phase which will begin at 11am for the lower placed competitors, while the top 20 will jump at 2pm after the parade of horses.
