Twenty riders had qualified for Sunday's 1.45m Longines Ranking class sponsored by Kingsland and eleven riders made it through to the jump-off on the last day of Kingsland Oslo Horse Show. Italy's Lorenzo De Luca and Halifax van het Kluizebos (Heartbreaker x Fetiche du Pas) went out as the second combination and set the time to beat at 36.25 seconds.

Leopoldo van Asten on VDL Groep Alexia Z (Air Jordan Z x Caletto) got all the turns right, but 38.72 seconds was still not good enough to beat De Luca. Lisa Nooren and Hocus Pocus de Muze (Tinka's Boy x For Pleasure) gave it a try but had to see the a-element of the double down. Sweden's Henrik Von Eckermann turned Mary Lou 194 (Montendro x Portland L) as tight as he could, and his time 37.90 seconds finaly placed him third.

Max Kühner and Coeur de Lion (Coriano x Cassini I) went straight after Eckermann and his accurate turns  placed him between De Luca and von Eckermann. Last to go was Bertram Allen (IRL) and Cheese W Z (Chatman x Galoubet A). Allen put full speed, but his turn to the second last fence got so tight that he took the whole fence with him.
