British showjumpers Scott Brash and Will Funnell gained top-six placings at the opening Rolex World Cup grand prix in Oslo.

Olympic team gold medallist Brash was fifth with his London 2012 horse Hello Sanctos, while Funnell finished sixth on Billy Congo.

Holland's Jeroen Dubbeldam won the event with BMC Utascha, clocking 43.79 seconds to win an eight horse jump-off.

Switzerland's Beat Mandli was second, and Spain's Sergio Alvarez Moya enjoyed an impressive debut on the former Nick Skelton-ridden Carlo, finishing third.

The World Cup series now moves to its second event of the season in Helsinki next weekend.
