Leg 6 result

1 Kadrizzi (Thierry Jarnet, Europe)
2 Flying Pursuit (Pierre-Charles Boudot, Europe)
3 Muhadathat (Emma-Jayne Wilson, Girls)

A one-two for Europe is almost enough to stage an incredible last-to-first jump in the final contest but Kenichi Ikezoe snuck into fourth place to give the Rest of the World team a crucial five points and the title. Jarnet takes the individual award, however, after notching two wins.

Leg 5 result

1 Danehill Kodiac (Gavin Lerena, ROW)
2 Combative (Silvestre de Sousa, ROW)
3 Real Dominion (Emma-Jayne Wilson, Girls)

The Rest of the World take a commanding lead after South African rider Gavin Lerena takes his second win of the day, with teammate Silvestre de Sousa in second. Lerena's on course for the Silver Saddle too, but with just one race to go it is still all to play for.

Leg 4 result

1 Early Morning (Hayley Turner, Girls)
2 Emell (Joe Fanning, GBI)
3 Highland Colori (Pierre-Charles Boudot, Europe)

It had to happen: Hayley Turner, making her one-off comeback from retirement, gets her winner at the Shergar Cup and punches the air in delight as she crosses the line. That win brings the Girls right back into it and, as you can see from the standings below, it is incredibly tight heading into the last two legs.
