Double Olympic medallist Pippa Funnell produced a supreme dressage display on Cornerman to move into the lead at the Burghley Horse Trials.

Funnell, who won silver and bronze in Athens on Primmore's Pride, picked up just 35.4 penalties.

It leaves her with a 4.8-penalty lead ahead of New Zealand's Andrew Nicholson on Lord Killinghurst.

Afterwards Funnell said of her horse: "His whole standard of work has improved over the past year."

Funnell's Olympic team-mate William Fox-Pitt had to make do with third on Ballincoola.

Fox-Pitt said: "It is the toughest course since 2000, and one of the longest at 12 minutes 40 seconds."
