An hour before the class started the teams were presented to the crowds.

Emily Moffitt and Winning Good delivered yet again, with only one time penalty in the first round and a great clear in the second round. What a season this pair has had!

Nicola Philippaerts and Katanga vh Dingeshof also ended with one time penalty in the first round and jumped clear in the second, helping the London Knights to secure the victory. 

Olivier Philippaerts and Le Blue Diamond v't Ruytershof ended the first round on five faults but came back strong with a clear in the second round. 

The Paris Panthers took the runner-up position after recording a total of 18 faults over the two rounds. The team consisted of Darragh Kenny and VDL Cartello, Gregory Wathelet and Nevados S as well as Harrie Smolders and Monaco. VDL Cartello, who also jumped the two rounds of the LGCT Super Grand Prix on Saturday evening where he finished 4th, delivered with a score of four in the first round and a clear in the second. The stallion really deserved the hug from his rider Darragh Kenny. 

Gregory Wathelet and Nevados S got a time fault in the first round, and had to see a pole fall the second time around. 

Harrie Smolders and Monaco ended the two rounds with five faults in the first round, and four in the second.

Ludger Beerbaum broke his finger in a difficult landing during the first round, however, he also entered the second round for his team Berlin Eagles that ended in third position after recording a total of 22 faults. Beerbaum was the best rider of the team, finishing the first round with one time fault to continue with four faults in the second round – riding the only 9-year-old Mila. 

Berlin Eagles' Christian Kukuk and Checker stepped up in round two – after recording nine faults on their first try, they delivered a great clear in the second round. 

Berlin Eagles' Philipp Weishaupt and Coby had four faults in each round.

Madrid in Motion ended in fourth position after finishing on 23 faults. Both Marlon Modolo Zanotelli on Grand Slam VDL and Maikel van der Vleuten on Beauville Z ended with a score of five faults in the first round and with a clear in the second, while Mark McAuley and Jasco vd Bisschop ended with nine and four faults. 

Peder Fredricson and Catch Me Not S were the best of the pairs on Valkenswaard United, after a clear first round followed by four faults in round two. Marcus Ehning and Stargold had to see twelve faults added to their score in the first round, but stepped up properly for the second round to deliver a clear. Edwina Tops-Alexander and Fellow Castlefield had nine faults in round one and twelve in the second.

Shanghai Swans finished last of the six teams with 39 faults. Christian Ahlmann and Dominator 2000 Z were the best on the team with five faults in round one and a clear in round two. Malin Baryard-Johnsson and H&M Indiana had a misunderstanding at fence no. three in the first round, but after a circle the two found their focus back and continued to end on thirteen faults. In the second round, the two had to add four faults to their score. Max Kühner and Electric Blue P stepped up for round two and ended on four faults, after recording thirteen faults in the first round.
