Edwina Tops-Alexander, Jaeger-LeCoultre's aficionado, set the 2012 Global Champions Tour alight in Doha winning the opening leg on her show jumping superstar Cevo Itot du Chateau. In a dramatic climax to the first Grand Prix of the new season, the reigning 2011 GCT champion beat off her rivals in a high powered seven-strong jump off.

The crucial first Grand Prix of the year marks the start of a very intensive road for Edwina, the world's No1 female rider, and it will include the London Olympics this summer. "Itot is in great shape. It is his first outdoor show this year. He is 16 years old but he feels fresh and I have had a wonderful show", said Edwina.

Speaking at the post-event press conference she said: "Titus and all my horses have really been super". "Going first in the jump off is definitely difficult. I came out of the ring and said 'I don't think I am fast enough'. But the horse jumped amazingly and as a rider you are only as good as the horse you are sitting on and he was good".
