Wilson produced another sub-40 score on her horse Bulanaafter to lie seventh.

GB's third pairing, Tina Cook and horse Billy the Red, are in 12th place going into tomorrow's cross country.

"That's the aim, and I'll be doing my absolute best to try and achieve that."

At the end of the dressage phase Germany dominate the individual rankings holding the top three medal places.
