In the Centre Shaken Russian Dragoons vs Shaken French Cuirassiers
Russian Infantry on the Right Centre
Russian Left Flank. This flank was under great pressure from the French Left and Centre (once the Russian Centre had gone)
The Russian Grenadiers and Cuirassiers rolling up the French Left

Dutch infantry on the French Left Centre (Yes that is a Westphalian Flag. My 2nd Westphalian acting as Dutch)
The French Centre advances against the Flanks of the Russian Left and Right Centre

While the French Left Flank was going it's Left Centre would hold long enough to allow the victorious French Centre to remove the Russian Left Flank (which was under way).
Then the French forces from the Centre and Right could then attack the Russian Right Centre and the village of Jakobovo.
So I could see the Russian 1st Corps having to withdraw before the French could cut off their retreat via Jakobovo, therefor the French had the day victory to General de division St Cyr.
