A surprised Richard commented " Delaya was really unlucky today, but jumping really well. As this was Vamos's first show back, I didn't want to go to fast, but just give her a nice ride round and being last to go I knew that good a clear would be enough to qualify and I wouldn't have to do anything else"

"We didn't put her in the class with qualifying in mind, we just wanted to give her a nice show back, qualifying was just a big bonus!"
