After the 2nd qualifier for the German Derby, the CSI5* 1.55/1.60m class saw the top of the world at the start in Hamburg. It was Steve Guerdat and his 10-year-old Is-Minka jumping to victory.
Steve Guerdat and Gerwilmer Ton (NED)'s former, 10-year-old Is-Minka (Mylord Carthago*HN) were just a bit faster as compatriot, Edouard Schmitz. Schmitz followed as runner-up with Patrick De Heer's bred, sBs-gelding, Gamin van 't Naastveldhof.
The stage of this CSI5* 1.55/1.60m class was completed by Yuri Mansur (BRA) aboard his trusted Miss Blue Mystic Rose (Chacco-Blue).
The pair was followed by Abdel Said (BEL) and Obama van Ostaayen (Etoulon VDL) while Ireland's Shane Breen completed the top five with Cato Boy (Commissario).
