It was Harrie Smolders (NED) that won the Christmas Masters at CSI5*-W London Olympia on Saturday afternoon. Riding the 10-year-old mare Corrada (Oklund x Lauriston), Smolders was the only one to clear the fourth round of the competition.

Marcus Ehning (GER) on the 9-year-old mare Calanda (Calido I x Chasseur) and Michael Whitaker (GBR) on the 8-year-old stallion Valmy de la Lande (Mylord Carthago x Starter) shared the fourth place. 

The first-five star class of the day, the Father Christmas Stakes, a 1.45m accumulator competition with a joker, went to the home hero John Whitaker (GBR). Riding the 9-year-old mare Leen O.L. (Berlin x Kannan), the pair clocked the winning time of 42,27 seconds.

William Funnell (GBR) on the 14-year-old gelding Billy Angelo (Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve x Kroongraaf) took the second spot, while the new combination of Geir Gulliksen (NOR) and the 11-year-old gelding VDL Groep Quatro continued their succesful debut by ending third.
