Meanwhile in Oliva, the competition day was drawing to a close. The riders prepared for the main event of the day: the 1m45 Longines Ranking Grand Prix qualifier.
Thirteen riders completed two clear rounds, but in the end it was Julien Epaillard who took the victory. The Frenchman was with Solero MS too fast for Karel Cox, who took the silver with Curiano Van Maarle Z. The podium was completed by the British rider Lily Attwood with Cor-Leon Vd Vlierbeek Z.
Koen Vereecke and Arioso du Bois finished fourth, Jörne Sprehe and Luna 1509 fifth.
Finally there was also a tenth place for Niels Bruynseels with Matador.
