The competition day in Verona started again with some great sport. More than forty participants entered the 1.50m high Longines Ranking class, where the victory went to the Israeli Robin Muhr in the saddle of Baccarat Meniljean (Diamant de Semilly).
Muhr set a razor-sharp clear time of 60.36 seconds with Baccarat Meniljean and took the gold. Almost two and a half seconds after Muhr, John Whitaker also finished clear on the back of Sharid (Toulon). Wilm Vermeir was in the saddle of another Toulon son, DM Jacqmotte, just five hundredths slower, so that the duo got the bronze.
Sweden's Petronella Andersson finished behind the top three with Claptonn Mouche (Conrad), trailing her compatriot Henrik von Eckermann on Calizi (Cellestial) in fifth.
