The French showjumper will be joined by the likes of Australian Edwina Tops-Alexander, recent winner of the Global Champions Tour, and Ukrainian Katharina Offel, winner in Abu Dhabi, and Frenchman Roger-Yves Bost, number 13 in the world rankings.

Meanwhile, American Richard Spooner, winner of the previous edition, will try to double up with the charismatic Cristallo.

The CSI5* is the highest possible level for a showjumping competition and, with riders eager keen to joy the comfortable facilities in La Coruna and prepare for the next World Cup qualifier in London, a good turnout is expected.

The competitors will have the chance to face off in several classes, among which are the NH Hoteles Trophy on Friday and the Azkar Trophy on Sunday.

The Grand Prix will not be held on Sunday but instead in the early evening of Saturday.
