Italy's Juan Carlos Garcia with the 10-year-old Il Rubacuori (Nabab de Reve x Heartbreaker) won the 1.45 m Grand Prix at the CSI2* show in Busto Arsizio. As many as seven rider-and-horse-combinations were double clear, so it was a race against the clock with Azerbaijan's Jamal Rahimov and Warrior (Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve x Heartbreaker) ending as runners-up more than one second behind. France's Catherine Offner with Freestyle Lady (Nagano x Garanto) finished third, more than two seconds behind Garcia on the timers.
The 4h and 5th place went to two French riders: Clement Frefejacques with Adonis (Pino x Lancer II) and Alexandre Fichaux with Rebel de Vizy (Zandor Z x Rox de la Touche).
Isheau Wong with Zadarijke V (San Remo x Havidoff) won the 1.45/1.50 Grand Prix in Opglabbeek with more than a second down to home rider Karel Cox on Cayen van het Hobos (Cornet Obolensky x Corrado). Luke Dee with Crespo PKZ (Cornet Obolensky x Landadel), Zoe Muller with Utopia van de Ryst (Kashmir van Schuttershof x Tenor Manciais) and Frederik Cattebeke with Caesar (Lucky Boy x Corland) ended 3rd, 4th and 5th.
The 1.45 Odense Grand Prix was won by Denmark's own Martin Dinesen Neergaard on Christoph Columbus (Charisma x Pilot). They were the fastest ones of the three double clears in the class finishing the jump-off in 32.34 seconds. Sweden's Fredrik Jönsson ended the shortened course in 33.30 seconds and took runner-up position riding Cold Play (Contendro I x Argentinus) ahead of his compatriot Alexandra Eriksson with Liss Royal (Lissabon x Royale W).
Two riders ended the jump-off with four faults and it was Norway's Pål Flam, who ended 4th with Skjerabergs Larkin (Ladiesdream x Centauer Z), and Denmark's Michael Aabo with Its the Senator III (Der Senaat III x Babs van het Sluishof) who ended 5th.
