Markus Fuchs lives up to top billing and goes four-up with Sylver II

  - Markus Fuchs lives up to top billing and goes four-up with Sylver II

KUALA LUMPUR: Switzerland’s Markus Fuchs lived up to his top billing when he bagged the Samsung Malaysia Cup (Grand Prix II) in the FEI 5 Star KL Grand Prix show jumping competition at the Putra Stadium here yesterday.

Fuchs geared up for the Samsung Malaysia Cup (Class 121.55m), the main event of the day, by winning the Putra Cup speed competition (Class 91.40m) earlier.

After two days of competition, Fuchs, the current world number three, is clearly the big winner as he has now bagged four titles so far.

He won the Putra Speed Derby (Class 8 – 1.40m) and Federal Territories Cup (Grand Prix I Class II, 1.50m) on Friday.

“It has been two good days of competition for me. I need to bring it together again tomorrow because it’s going to be a big challenge for me in the KL Grand Prix,” said Fuchs.

But it was tough day at the office for Fuchs as he had to battle it out in both the Samsung Malaysia Cup and Putra Cup.

In the Samsung Malaysia Cup, Fuchs rode Sylver II to clock 36.37 (0 penalties) for victory with Swede Helena Lundback on Errblum (40.53 - 0 penalties) and Frenchman Jean Marc Nicolas on JPC Modesto Equifoam (41.12 - 0 penalties) in second and third places respectively.

“Sylver II has been performing extremely well in KL.I hope Sylver II can continue to perform well in the KL Grand Prix,” said Fuchs, who won RM55,000 for emerging tops in the Samsung Malaysia Cup.

Lundback and Nicolas pocketed RM43,00 and RM28,000 respectively.

In the Putra Cup, Fuchs also had a tough time before coming out triumphant.

The Putra Cup allows each rider to accumulate a maximum of 44 points.

The winner is then decided based on timing if more than one rider reach the maximum. The competition was stiff as there were seven riders who accumulated 44 points.

Fuchs also rode Sylver II to clock the fastest time of 35.32 to finish first.

Dutchman Henk van de Pol rode Dan 7-T to clock 35.35 to finish second, followed by Kristof Cleeren of Belgium on Sea Coast Wonderful in third place with a 35.53 timing.

Fuchs received RM39,000 for the win while van de Pol and Cleeren went home with RM31,000 and RM24,000 respectively.

Meanwhile, Singaporean Catherine Chew won a double, bagging the Young Riders Classic Final title (Class 1.20m) and the Asian Classic (Classic 4A1.30m) title yesterday.

Malaysia’s Syed Zain Almohdzar was the best local performer in the Asian Classic, finishing in fifth place clocking 68.09 with 4 penalties.
