Lorenzo De Luca won the Martin Collins Enterprises Christmas Tree Stakes this evening to claim his second Olympia title this week on the nine-year-old Halifax van het Kluizebos.

The 29-year-old Italian knocked nearly half a second off the leader Daniel Deusser, who finished eventual second, to enthusiastic cheers from the Olympia crowd.

Best of the Brits was Ben Maher, who finished third on the eight-year-old gelding Don Vito. Ben has only had the ride on the chestnut, owned by Poden Farms, since November this year.

With 14 riders tackling the unforgiving jump off course only four riders went clear, proving the difficulty of Kelvin Bywater’s course.
