The prize Stephex, a Table A with jump off for the Longines Ranking, was the last chance for the 5* riders to qualify for the Longines Ranking Grand Prix on Sunday.
66 horses started in a 1 m 50 class and only 5 jumped clear. The Irish rider Anthony Concon on Balzac took first place, Swedish Angelie Von Essen was second on Bydalens Qamaieu de Montsec. Anthony Condon: "The course was heavy and the time was short. I was first to go in the jump off decided to go fast but not crazy. Balzac has a big galop and in a big arena like here it's an advantage. Tomorrow i will ride Balzac in the Grand Prix. Balzac is in super form, in the Grand Prix of the CSI3* in Eschweiler last week I had bad luck, the bit broke two fences before the finish and I had to withdraw."
