It was another ideal day in Mexico City as LGCT wrapped up a wonderful weekend of world-class showjumping. Starting with the 1.50 Trofeo Banorte (Banorte Trophy), thirty-seven entries attempted to master the track set by Uliano Vezzani. Of the eight who qualified for the competitive jump-off, it was again Great Britain's Scott Brash who led the victory gallop aboard the scopey Oldenburg gelding Hello Forever (For Pleasure x Nimmerdor)

First to go in the round against the clock was two-time LGCT champion Edwina Tops-Alexander aboard the feisty mare Lintea Tequila (Campbell x Corrado II). The pair cleared the track and set the time to beat, super quick and clean in 43.53.

Dutch rider Harrie Smolders on the gorgeous stallion Don VHP Z (Diamant de Semilly x Voltaire) executed a smooth and slick ride in 46.73 seconds, not fast enough. Hometown hero Antonio Chedraui made a super effort on La Bamba (Lordanos x Chameur), stopping the clock in 46.13 to take over the second spot. Not for long though, as Spain's Sergio Alvarez Moya on the Selle Francais gelding G&C Quitador Rochelais ( Jarnac x Unau du Fonteny) turned up the heat, going clean in 44.86 stealing the second spot from Chedraui.

Demonstrating unbelievable scope, Hello Forever hopped each obstacle with ease carrying a slick pace that ultimately stopped the clock in 43.07 seconds slipping into the top spot by a slight margin for the win pushing Tops-Alexander down to second and Moya down to third.
