A clear round of 36.72 seconds secured the win for Martin ahead of Gerco Schroder on Eurocommerce London (Nabab de Reve x Chin Chin), who did their first show together since their last outing in Rio in October. The Dutch rider and his double Olympic silver medal ride London had a time of 37.55 in the jump-off.
