It was a close race in the Top 10 Final, with Christian Ahlmann and his faithful 16-year-old partner Taloubet Z finishing in second place 0.49 behind Eric Lamaze.
Daniel Deusser gave it a great try despite his four faults from the first round, but unfortunately another pole fell in round two for him and First Class van Eeckelghem.
Reveur de Hurtebise HDC and Kevin Staut finished fourth with one down in the second round.
Kent Farrington and his 9-year-old superstar Creedance knocked down the midle element of the triple combination in the first round, and with a clear second round they ended off 8th.
Marcus Ehning and Pret a Tout were really unlucky, as their only fault came on the the upright at fence number 10 in the first round. The two ended 7th.
Scott Brash and Hello M'Lady also had a single rail down in the first round, the last part of the triple combination, and finished 6th.
Penelope Leprevost, the only lady rider in the Top 10 Final, ended 5th with Vagabond de la Pomme after having one down in round two against the clock.
Third placed Steve Guerdat and Corbinian flying in Geneva.
What an amazing pair: Eric Lamaze and Fine Lady 5 got a deserved victory in the Top 10 Final after what has been a fantastic year for them.
It was not really Simon Delestre's day, and the French rider finished off 10th.
