We are counting down to the top 25 show jumping at the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, which will start at 2:30 p.m. BST/9:30 a.m. EST. Scores are tightly bunched at the top of the leaderboard, and none of the pairs in the top 10 have a rail in hand to remain in their current position.

Which riders have the best show jumping record at CCI4* level? Which riders have the worst? Which horses are the most likely to leave all the poles in the cups? EN crunched the numbers on the top 10 to give you what you need to know ahead of the show jumping finale.
