Jur Vrieling and Zirocco Blue VDL was clear until this line, and just a brick on the wall kept them away from the jump-off. Photos by Jenny Abrahamsson.

Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.The winner Kevin Staut: "Silvana has a great experience by now, and I know she can be fast. I had a little problem in the class here the first day in a right turn; she misunderstood me and stopped so when I was going in the ring for the jump-off I didn't want to take all the risk – but each turn was great and I could find the best distances possible so it was my day! [...] I am very happy for my mare! [...] Normally I wanted only to jump her in the big class the first day and maybe yesterday, but then I had the misunderstanding in the big class the first day and as it was one of her last rounds before the World Cup Final I decided on Friday night to put her in the Grand Prix and I can't say that was a bad decision," Kevin laughed.
