As the 2018 Longines Global Champions Tour season gallops south across Europe, fierce rivalry and top sport will be at the forefront of everyone’s mind as the best show jumpers in the world head to Cascais, Estoril, for the Portuguese leg of the global circuit.

Current LGCT-ranking leader Edwina Tops-Alexander (AUS) will lead the pack in Portugal, where she enjoys a 29 point lead over closest rival Ben Maher (GBR). As the 2018 LGCT-race gallops towards its midway point, Tops-Alexander will be hoping to boost some of her scores, with only the top eight results counting towards the overall standings.

However there will be a whole host of riders in action this week. As with every event on Tour, the battle for the prestigious Grand Prix win - which now carries the additional accolade of earning the winner a place in the prestigious GC Play Offs and Longines Global Champions Tour Super Grand Prix - will be one of the toughest challenges in the sport, as the planet’s top athletes come together for the 8th stop on the world’s premier showjumping series. Last year’s winner Danielle Goldstein (ISR) returns, with her sights set on the podium at a venue she knows and loves. Also in action will be Bertram Allen (IRL) and Martin Fuchs (SUI), both of whom have enjoyed success at the picturesque show ground and will be hungry to earn a place on the top step this Saturday.

Amongst many of the names in action this week, fans will be treated to three days of top sport featuring Ludger Beerbaum (GER), Nicola Philippaerts (BEL), Gerco Schröder (NED), Lorenzo de Luca (ITA), Michael Whitaker (GBR), Gregory Wathelet (BEL), Simon Delestre (FRA), Marcus Ehning (GER), Alberto Zorzi (ITA), Christian Ahlmann (GER), Daniel Deusser (GER), Pedro Veniss (BRA), Eric van der Vleuten (NED) and home rider Luciana Diniz (POR) to name just a few.
