Corée and Eldorado ranked well in the CSIW in Madrid

After a first warm up day for Corée, it was really in the World Cup class on Sunday that Gregory counted on her. The course was rather delicate, and demanded a lot of concentration. After a first perfect clear round where she seemed to fly over the jumps, she qualified for the jump off along with 8 other competitors. Starting in third position, Gregory immediately set the tempo, but paid the lack of experience on number 2, where they came too close and couldn't avoid the fault. 4 points in the jump off and a beautiful 7th place in this World Cup GP, and hence some additional points in the run up to the final.  Eldorado jumped in the GP on Friday but unfortunately with 4 points. He made up for it nicely on Saturday in the big class with one fault in the jump off and a beautiful 8th place; and finally on Sunday morning with a very fast clear round and a 5th place.
