Fresh from his great clear round in the La Baule Nations' Cup, Complete gave Cian another superb performance at CSI5* Madrid today when winning the 1m50 Grand Prix Qualifier. Cian outpaced Canadian Olympic Gold Medallist Eric Lamaze and his Beijing winner Hickstead in the Trofeo Altae Banco. Lamaze had won the two previous classes, but Complete denied him a third.
Cian said afterwards: "Complete is jumping out of his skin. He makes it look so easy, but in reality he is trying his heart out to win. He is in peak form at the moment, which I suppose is pretty obvious to anyone watching!"
