On Sunday Cian scored yet another Grand Prix win, this time at Basel in Switzerland with Rancorrado. One of just four from a starting list of 45 to make it through to the jump-off, Rancorrado did not put a foot wrong and came home with just a time fault. The other three finalists all incurred jumping penalties.
Cian said afterwards: "To win here is just fantastic. Show jumping can be all about confidence, like a football team that wins one match and then goes on a roll. So my Grand Prix win at OIympia in December with Rancorrado gave me that confidence, and made today's win possible. It's also down to a lot of hard work from a lot of people, and of course one amazingly talented horse."
