Chantilly, France - Beezie Madden pulled off a stunning victory in Chantilly in a power-packed Grand Prix that saw the very best in the world in one of the most stunning jump offs of the 2013 championship race.

Beezie snatched victory from the hands of Christian Ahlmann, but his second place finish propelled him to the top of the Longines Global Tour ranking - a clear 19 points ahead of his nearest rival. Riding her 11-year-old bay gelding Cortes C, Beezie galloped to the finish in a blistering 41.58 and admitted it was a "fantastic jump off" and promised to step up the competition at other European events on the Tour.

Christian Ahlmann and his star bay stallion Codex One had held the lead and were heading for the second Grand Prix victory of the season but crossed the finish in 43.08 in front of a thousands of show jumping fans in the grandstand and the VIP hospitality lodges. Christian now leads the ranking and the World Ranking and says is he "very happy" with both positions.

The level of competition in the Grand Prix was stratospheric and only the most exceptional rider and horse combinations were able to pull off double clears and then five riders delivered outstanding triple clears.

Britain's Scott Brash was third on Hello Sanctos in 43.79 and said competition was exceptionally high with 9 out of the Top 10 in the world Chantilly.
