Out of just under fifty combinations, only ten made it to the jump-off. Fuchs (SUI) was unerring in the saddle of the Commissario son and sent arrow-fast to the last obstacle, where the pair clocked off at 43.06s. Under the saddle of Lorenzo de Luca (ITA) was the Vigo Cece offspring Denver de Talma. They too finished clear with a time of 44.35s, good for second place. Patrick Stühlmeyer (GER) provided the best result for his own audience, bringing Drako de Maugre (Kannan) flawlessly to third place with 44.52s on the clock, on the heels of de Luca. 

The fourth and final clear round was ridden by Daniel Deusser (GER) and Gangster V.H Noddevelt, a son of Eldorado vd Zeshoek. Their chrono was recorded at 45.22s. Natalie Dean (USA) came close to the winning time with a time of 43.97s for Acota M (Toulon), however a beam out of the scoops meant fifth place for the pair.
