After a three horse jump-off in the Falsterbo Derby Cian O'Connor and Quidam's Cherie (Quidam's Rubin x Lifestyle) were the happy winners. As usual the Derby in Falsterbo saw a lot of faults, but three of the 22 riders entered went through to a jump-off.

The jump-off became a battle between two big Derby Nations, Ireland and Great Britain, with Ireland securing a double with Dermott Lennon and Loughview Lou-Lou (Limmerick x Jack Of Diamonds) in second place 1,58 seconds behind O'Connor. Third place went to the derby-winner from 2010 William Funnell. Funnel was riding Billy Onslow, a 9 year old offspring by Funnell's stallion Billy Congo.

Mario Stevens and El Bandiata B (El Bundy x Picard) were the fastest four faulters - ending fourth with Maikel van der Vleuten as number five riding Vdl Groep Quatro (Quaprice x Caletto I).
