It was Austria's Martin Muhlstatter, riding Blo Gun, that took the top spot with a score of 223 points and was followed by Italy's Pierluigi Chioldo and Gun at the Gate, with French challenger Axel Pesek also progressing on Uncle Sparky.

"She's an amazing mare," said Pierluigi, of his horse. "She was in the pasture, but she started being ridden again for WEG. She's ten and she's great."

The three other spots were taken by two more Italian riders - Mirko Midili on Arc Sparkle Magnetic and Mirjam Stillo with Ruff Spook - plus Uruguay's Brigido Gabriel Diano Riccetto, riding Magnum Starlights.
