Guy Williams wins Christmas Masters to press Olympic case

Guy Williams continued his good run of form by winning the Christmas Masters at Olympia's London International Horse Show on Saturday.

The Kent-based rider had won Friday's Mistletoe Stakes and finished joint first in the Puissance competition.

Williams then warmed up for Sunday's World Cup qualifier by winning the Masters on Depardieu van't Kiezelhof.

He won the Masters ahead of his Great Britain team-mate Scott Brash in a jump-off on Saturday.

Later in the evening session, Williams also won the Christmas Tree Stakes but failed to complete a hat-trick in the Santa Stakes, which was won by Simon Delestre.
