Ben Maher: "Rome is my lucky town..."

The world class combination of Ben Maher (GBR) and Explosion W took Rome by storm winning their second LGCT Grand Prix in a row in the Eternal City. "Rome has been a lucky show for me in the last two years."

"Explosion loves the arena here and with the Italian crowd. It was a big Grand Prix today with not many clear rounds and it was an exciting class to be in. I am very happy and now and I will just enjoy the Grand Prix win and the overall Championship is important."

All admiration to Ben, said Ludger Beerbaum.

German maestro Ludger Beerbaum and Cool Feeling delivered two superlative clear rounds in the Stadio Dei Marmi amphitheatre finishing third on the podium. He said: "If I see how Ben has been performing over the last month to two years, it's not luck or chance he keeps on winning. To be just six tenths of a second behind him it fills me with confidence for my next Grand Prix on this horse. Ben deserved to win. For Uliano to have designed a course like this over two rounds, it is the same as Ben and Explosion, it is exceptional."
