No less than 14 combinations qualified for the Jump-Off in the 1.55m main class in 's Hertogenbosch. At the Dutch Masters it was eventually Willem Greve securing a home win aboard his trusted Grandorado TN N.O.P.
Great-Britain's Scott Brash was the first to take the start in the Jump-Off. With Hello Valentino (Diamantino) the British rider set a clear round in 42.10 seconds. Shortly after Germany's Janne Freiderike Meyer-Zimmerman and her 11-year-old Belgian Warmblood-gelding, Messi van 't Ruytershof (Plot Blue) bested the time. In the end the pair finished sixth.
Aboard his trusted Grandorado TN NOP (Eldorado vd Zeshoek), Willem Greve was about six seconds faster as the pair, securing a magical home win! On stage Harry Charles (GBR) followed as runner-up with Casquo Blue (Chacco-Blue) while France's Kevin Staut and Visconti du Telman (Toulon) completed the top three.
The pair was followed by Steve Guerdat (SUI) aboard Dynamix de Belheme (Snaike de Blondel). The top five was completed by Dutch, Maikel van der Vleuten and Dywis HH (Toulon).
After his victory Greve reacted to choose for Grandorado for the Grand Prix on Sunday. "I hope he 'll be as motivated as today," Greve says.
