I know Quidam du Vivier is a very quick horse, and also very careful. He has jumped better and better – and today was our day [...] I don't think I have to comment on Frank's track – he has years of experience and knows exactly what he is doing and he knows us all."

The victory might have seemed a little unfair from the home crowds' point of view though, as it was very close to a French win for Patrice Delaveau and Lacrimoso HDC (Landjunge x Cascavelle) who in the end had to settle for second.
