Germany's Daniel Deusser won Saturday's biggest class in Dublin; the JLT Dublin Stakes. Riding Fyloe V. Claeyssenhof (Burggraf x Heartbreaker), Deusser produced one of only five clears in the first round in this 1.50 class that brought with it a lot of faults for the combinations in it with no less than seven riders choosing to retire. It was especially the final line from the combination at 10a and b to two oxers at 11 and 12 followed by a vertical as the final challenge that fell frequently.
With Philipp Weishaupt opting not to jump Chico (Cordalme Z x Sandro) in the jump-off, it ended up as a battle between four riders. As first to go home rider Greg Broderick had the opening fence down on MHS Going Global (Quidam Junior I x Cavalier Royale), while Marlon Zanotelli did a clear round on Extra van Essene (Diamant de Semilly x Gotthardsen) stopping the clock on 36.54 seconds. Patrick Stühlmeyer and Chasmo (Chin Chin x Indoctro) could not catch up with the Brazilian rider, and slotted in behind him over a second slower – but his compatriot Daniel Deusser went for it as last to go to take the win on a time of 36.05 pushing Zanotelli down to second and Stühlmeyer down to third.
The accumulator class held earlier in the day, saw two Irish riders on top. Billy Twomey won on Royale du Rouet (Jeff D'or x Kannan) and Cameron Hanley was second on Newton du Haut Bois (Cumano x Quat 'Sous). In third came Philipp Weishaupt on Calado 2 (Calando I x Landgraf I).
