Indeed, the top three in what is now called the Longines Ranking - following the watchmakers' partnership deal with the International Federation - remains unchanged, with Olympic champion Steve Guerdat in second, with Britain's Nick Skelton third.

Australian Edwina Tops-Alexander is rewarded for her recent good form with fourth place, bumping German Marcus Ehning down to sixth.

Switzerland's Pius Schwizer moves up one place to fifth, while Frenchman Kevin Staut drops two places to seventh.

Dutchmen Gerco Schroder (eighth) and Marc Houtzager (ninth) follow ahead of Pénélope Leprevost of France, who returns to the top 10.

Sweden's Rolf Goran-Bengtsson, who was world number one barely three months ago, lies in 11th, with German Ludger Beerbaum in 12th after jumping four places following his wins in Basel and Zurich.

Behind the leading group are the American pair Beezie Madden (13th) and Kent Farrington (14th) as well as the Frenchman Roger-Yves Bost (15th).

The Portuguese Luciana Diniz, star of Basel and Zurich, takes a leap forward from 30th to 22nd place.
