At the CSI5* competition in St Tropez it was Ireland's Bertram Allen who jumped to victory in the 1.50m class. Allen was almost two seconds faster as the other riders aboard his Belgian Warmblood gelding, Lafayette Van Overis (Kashmir Van Schuttershof).
Allen and his 9-year-old gelding were followed by USA's Jessica Springsteen with her SF-mare, Volage Du Val Henry (Quidam de Revel). The stage was completed by Brasil's Yuri Mansur with Casaktie (Cascari).
Scott Brash guided his AES-gelding Hello Franklin (Billy MExico) to the fourth place while France's Roger Yves Bost completed the top five aboard Castleforbes Talitha (Cardenio).
