The Price of the city 's Hertogenbosch was a nice, speedy 1.45m class. In the end it was France's Julien Epaillard who claimed the win, leaving home-hero, Leopold van Asten in second place. Epaillard jumped to victory aboard Dubai du Cedre.
The French rider and his 10-year-old daughter of Baloubet du Rouet were the only to finish faultless in under 54 seconds. In front of his home crowd, the 2017 Rolex Grand Prix-winner, Leopold van Asten placed second with VDL Groep Miss Untouchable (Chacco-Blue).
The stage was completed by France' Simon Delestre and Tinka's Hero Z (Tinka's Boy).
Earlier Piet Raijmakers Jr. (NED) jumped to victory in the 1.45m openingclass. This time the Dutch rider and Van Schijndel's Olaya Z (Concorde) placed fourth while Brazil's Yury Mansur completed the top five with his SF-gelding, Cheyenne de la Violle (Nabab de Rêve).
