With 5 entries to go Ann Fonck (BE) and the 8-year-old stallion Spook Unchained [Smart Spook] owned by Anna Reinhart came alongside posting a 223,0 as well. It was not going to be a complete Belgium stage though.
Being the second last entry Nico Sicuro (ITA) and the 9-year-old stallion Colonels Dancing Gun [Gunner] owned by Quarter Dream SRL took over the lead. Despite the fact that he touched the penalty box lightly he posted the top score 224,0. That was the challenge for Lukasz Czechowicz (POL) and the 9-year-old gelding CSG Piggiemove [Colonels Shining Gun] owned by Katarzyna Roleska and the Polish rider did not hesitate to take up this challenge. The strongest maneuvers were the spins and stops and with a 225,0 score the pair claimed the title. Reserve honors were for Sicuro and Ann and Bernard stood hand in hand on the third step of the podium.
