Yesterday's cross-country test certainly provided the thrills and spills that the crowd came for.
Of the 81 starters that set off round HughThomas's cross-country course at the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials, there were 57 finishers. Of these, 42 combinations jumped clear and four came home inside the time.
The final 20 have just started showjumping. There is less than a fence in hand between the top four, and just 8.4 penalties separating the top 10.
