Jumping the hurdles with great felicity, Phun Pheaktra and his free-striding mount Coco took the corners well enough to post a fluent win in the 90cm Grand Prix section of the Prince Norodom Sihanouk du Cambodge Show Jumping Championship at the Cambodian Country Club on Sunday.

The victory in the second round of this three-stage event was even sweeter for Pheaktra, who managed to peg back into second place the first round winner Ly Sovanchandara.

In the process of achieving this notable win, Pheaktra, who is a strong SEA Games prospect later this year, also left behind his somewhat modest showing in the first round last week.

Sochea Maung finished third.

Greta Masche was in flowing form while taking top honours in Pony Control.

Timing her jumps well, Masche finished ahead of Chetra Mortenson and Fauve de Lange.

Ester-Zina Guibert came out best in the 50cm junior event, pushing back Betina Bonnard into second. Gabriel Goosens was third.

Pascal Kao was in good nick in the 50cm to take Seniors division honours.

Chasing the winner hard in second place was Sjoerd Ypma, with Hannah Shaw content to finish behind the top two.

Chenda Goosens had a peach of a ride in the 70cm Intermediate class.

She had to shrug off Lola Mottet and Alicia Khiem to claim the event.

The overall leaders of each category will be decided in the third and final leg of the competition, which will be held on February 10.
