The first CSI5* winner of the 5th edition of the Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping was British Olympic Champion Ben Maher who rode Don Vito (Quaprice Z x Jus de Pomme) – a 10-year-old Dutch gelding –  to victory.

This is not really a first for Maher in Paris, but this victory was important to start his competition: "Paris is a great city to be in and I have always been lucky on this show in the past. I hope this is a good sign for the weekend. I rode Don Vito only once or twice in the beginning of the year, he has been with Emily Moffitt for a few months now and I just borrowed him for the weekend to help with the other horse. We ride for the same owner, Poden Farms, so we sometimes switch horses. Luckily for me he is a very fast horse."

Second place went to Philip Houston (GER) on Loewenherz (Lordano 7 x Lucky Boy D) 0.17sec. behind Maher, while third place went to Marlon Módolo Zanotelli (BRA) on Typie du Tillard (Diamant de Semilly x Grand Veneur).
