At the Dutch Masters in ‘s Hertogenbosch only four combinaties qualified for the jump-off in the 1.55m main class. Portugal’s Luciana Diniz decided not to start her second round with the For Pleasure-son, Fit For Fun 13, claiming the fourth place.
It was Daniel Deusser who set the fastest clear round aboard the Cornet Obolensky-zon, Cornet d’Amour. Deusser speeded to victory in 40.01 seconds staying ahead of compatriot, Philipp Weishaupt. Deusser is on form earlier winning at the Longines Masters in both Hong Kong and Paris.
Weishaupt placed second with LB Convall (f. Colmann). Weishaupt stopped the clock in 40.47 seconds. Home rider, HArrie Smolders, earlier honored as best rider of 2017, placed third after one jumping fault with Emerald (f. Diamant de Semilly).
Alberto Zorzi completed the top five with one time fault in the saddle of Ego van Orti (f. Vigo d’Arsouilles).
