In Riyadh, the day ended with a spectacular main class which counted for the FEI World Cup. In the class over 1.55m, ridden over two rounds, Abdulrahman Alrajhi won in front of his home crowd in the saddle of Babalou HD (v. Balous Bellini).
Riding Babalou HD (by Balous Bellini), Alrajhi stayed clear in 45.20 seconds. Japan's Mike Kawai continued his top form of the recent weeks and was able to land silver on Saxo de La Cour (by Tlaloc M) after finishing in 47,63. Maysam Bisharat delivered the third and final clear second round and was rewarded with bronze on Un Dollar de Blondel (by Tlaloc M). Their round wasn't quite the fastest but just ending clear was enough.
Emanuele Gaudiano with Crack Balou (by Balou du Reventon) rushed around the course in 43.15 but received four penalties which dropped them to four. Local Abdullah Alsharbatly decided the top five on Jérôme Guery's former Kannabis van de Bucxtale (by Contact van de Heffinck).
