Male and female teams were chosen from each age and difficulty level, but only the top two competitors went through by right, leaving the next three as reserves.

At L1 9-10 girls Lily Monday took a fine fourth place making her a reserve.

In the 13+ girls Lucy Chambers was a good fifth making her also a reserve.

In 11-12 girls, Laura Kelly maintained her earlier high standard coming in first, so an automatic team place, and also jumping well was Laila Carey in eight place.

Moving up to three in the boys 9-10s Fraser Macpherson won himself an automatic team place by taking gold.

In the 11-12 girls Rachel Marsh took a good second, and a team place.

In the 13+ girls our talented and normally successful trio were beaten by a very high standard. Imogen Wells was sixth, Lauren Muttitt seventh and Emma Small 12th, so no team places there.

Up at 4 13+ girls Rebecca Dormer held on to her usual place in first, and although Georgia Makel performed well she will not be joining her in the team with a seventh place. Ben Gilroy unusually faulted his last bounce and hangs in fifth place as reserve.

At level 5, Millie Heathcote was in first and Milly Cole was second gaining them both team places.
