Julien Epaillard (FRA) and the 10-year-old mare Caracole de La Roque (Zandor Z x Kannan) won Sunday's CSI4* 1.55m Prijs TM² Equestrian Grand Prix at Sentower Park in Belgium. 

Eight horse-and-rider-combinations out of the 46 at start in Sunday's Grand Prix cleared the first round track and joined the deciding jump-off, where Epaillard – current world rank number five – once again was in a league of his own, crossing the finish line in 39.80 seconds.

"With a horse like Caracole de La Roque, I knew I had a good chance today," Epaillard told World of Showjumping after his victory. "She is fast, scopey and careful and has gathered great experience this summer. She jumped well at the World Championship in Herning and after having a break, feels good and fresh. Eight riders is a perfect number for a jump-off, so the course designer did a good job today; it was a nice four-star Grand Prix."

Hans-Dieter Dreher (GER) – who won two ranking classes during the weekend at Sentower Park – had to settle for the runner-up position with Vestmalle des Cotis (Baloubet du Rouet x Landor S), when the clock stopped on 41.55 for the German rider. William Whitaker (GBR) and Galtur (Cornet's Stern x Balou du Rouet) placed third, while Joseph Stockdale (GBR) on Equine America Cacharel (Cachas x Quinar Z) took the fourth place and Manuel Fernandez Saro (ESP) on Acoufina PS (Action-Breaker x Contefino) fifth.
