Heavy rains dominated most of the time during the first day of quarter finals of the Gold Cup for the British Open, that were held at Trippetts and Cowdray Park. Cortium and Dubai were the first two teams to get a spot into the tournament's semifinals, following their respective wins. In the day's opener, Cortium edged title holders, Zacara, after a 9-6 win. Next, Dubai defeated Salkeld 10-7, in a match that was played under heavy rains, especially during chukkas two and three. Due to this, action was very slow, with many falls, and an injury for Salkeld's James Beim, who had to leave in the second chukka. He was replaced by Juan Gris Zavaleta. The semifinals will be set on Sunday, after the two last quarter matches due at Ambersham: El Remanso vs. Ellerston, at 3pm and Sumaya vs. Aravali, at 5pm.
