Riding the 13-year-old Splendor, O'Connor once again left the rest trailing in his wake with a blistering pace in the six-horse jump-off against the clock over the maximum-height 1.6m course.

Runner-up was French lady rider Penelope Leprevost whose mare, Nice Stephanie, was more than a second slower, while Portugal's Luciana Dinia and Fit for Fun slotted into third as O'Connor collected the £6,000 winner's prize.

Olympic team gold medallist, Nick Skelton, steered 12-year-old Irish-bred gelding Heracross into fifth behind fellow Briton Michael Whitaker riding Viking.
