On Friday, Henk van de Pol won the first qualifier for Sunday's Longines Trophy at Jumping Indoor Maastricht and on Saturday he repeated his success when winning the second qualifier – the 1.50m Van Mossel Prize – as well. 

Looyman Z (Numero Uno x Wellington) again proved that he is a very fast horse when beating all of his 12 opponents in the jump-off. “I thought it was a rather difficult course, but it was a perfect exercise for my horse. I know he is a real good horse and he showed it this evening,” said a proud Van der Pol afterwards. “I was relaxed when I entered the arena, I was thinking about tomorrow’s Grand Prix, but he felt so good I thought ‘ok, let’s go for the jump-off’.” It has been four years since Van de Pol last competed at JIM. “I really like the show, but I just did not have to right horse for this level. I am glad to be back,” he said.  

Van de Pol stayed realistic about his chances in the Longines Trophy: “A mistake can be made in an instant but Looyman is in very fit and I have to make sure I ride as well as I can. Looyman always wants to stay clear, I have no doubts about him.” 

France’s Edward Levy finished as runner-up with Uno de Cerisy (Open Up Semilly x Siego), 0.53 seconds behind the winner. Home rider Maikel van der Vleuten took third place with Verdi TN (Quidam de Revel x Landgraf I) followed by his father Eric in fourth with Djoost Again (Cantos x Joost).
