This morning the CSI5* combinations warmed-up for the Grand Prix with a 1.50m Two Phase Special. It was Belgium's Pieter Devos and Irona Van de Viking Z (Iron Man van de Padenborre) speeding to victory.
Irona Van de Viking was before competed by Dutch Amber Fijen and Devos' wife, Caroline Devos-Poels. With their victory the mare her earnings rise up to almost 20.000 euro. Pieter Devos and the 10-year-old Zangersheide-mare advanced in this 1.50m class on France's Marc Dilasser and E2K Abricot Ennemmelle (Quaprice Bois Margot).
Yesterday good for a seventh place in the 1.50m speed class, Harrie Smolders (NED) and Uricas vd Kettevennen (Uriko) jumped into the third place.
The pair was followed by Lily Attwood (GBR) aboard Karibou Horta (Landor S) while Antoine Ermann and Comic Star (Levistan) completed the top five.
