Cartier triumph in St Moritz
The St Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow concluded yesterday, with Britain's Chris Hyde helping Cartier to victory
JONATHAN MUNRO FORD'S Cartier team won the St Moritz Polo World Cup on Snow after defeating BMW 5-4 in Sunday's final.
The team, which also featured British professionals Max Charlton, Nacho Gonzalez and Chris Hyde, put Saturday's defeat to Andreas Knapp Voith's BMW behind them and began the final strongly. The team benefited from a change of tactics and fantastic play by Hyde, who was later named the World Polo Tour most valuable player.
By half-time Cartier were 5-1 up, their unrelenting defence denying BMW the chance to score. Although BMW upped their game in the second half, coming out with increased energy and pulling the score back up to 5-4, Cartier maintained their lead to win the title.
Earlier in the day Michael Bickford's Ralph Lauren side beat Richard Davis' s Sal. Oppenheim 4-3 in the subsidiary final to finish third in the tournament.
