Saturday's 1.45m competition against the clock sponsored by Sport1 at CSI5*-W Kingsland Oslo Horse Show saw another French rider on top. This time around it was Julien Epaillard on Sheriff de la Nutria Lm (Diamant de Semilly x Papillon Rouge) who set an unbeatable time of 51.57 seconds. As one of the last ones to go, Belgian rider Gudrun Patteet on Sea Coast Ferly (Calato x Darco) got closest to Epaillard stopping the clock on 52.24 seconds.

Third place went to Irish rider Bertram Allen on Cheese W Z (Chatman x Galoubet A), who went in at the beginning of the class and set the pace for others to follow with his time of 53.23. Most of the clears stopped the clock around those numbers but no one was able to catch Epaillard.

The class had a few surprises in it; yesterday's winner Mathieu Bilot had an unexpected stop on fence number two and  Edwina Tops-Alexander on her very fast Florette van het Lambroeck (For Pleasure x Baloubet du Rouet) really chased Julien's leading time, but saw an unfortunate pole fall on the second last fence. The home crowds were very happy for the Norwegian riders; Pål Flam rode another great clear round on Briljantbridge B (Radisson x Glennridge), as did his fellow country man Geir Gulliksen on Edesa S Banjan (Toulon x Lys de Darmen).
