Da Silva had one of seven double clears in the class, and with a time of 39.63 in the jump-off he ended on top. "I have been riding her for a year," Arthur said. "She has jumped the big classes this year and we have had good results; we were third in the Grand Prix of Linz in Austria, and seventh in a Grand Prix qualifier for the Swiss Championships. Today, we chose to put her in this class and here we are!"

Michel Hécart finished 59/100 slower than Arthur, riding his excellent Piman de la Deviniere - ending in second while Simone Wettstein was third on Clipmyhorse Cash and Go with a time of 40.82 seconds. Then followed no less than four French riders in the next places, making it a good day for France on home soil.
