For the third Swede Peder Frederickson tried to dethrone the winner, but his effort was fruitless to make slate a time of 35.35 seconds with 9-years-old gelding H&M Zaloubet (Maloubet of Pleville x Robin Z) owned by Astrid Ohlin, to leave in fourth place in the German Jana Wargers with Carl 60 (Cornet Obolensky (ex: Windows x Le Cou Cou) in time of 38.80 seconds last representative double clear in the competition.
For Pan American Ranking Yuri Mansur from Brazil stands out with a fifth place by the 11-years-old gelding Amor (Namelus R x Haarlem) owned by Mansur a round of jump-off at 35.25 seconds, recording that was worth a third but overthrew a rod for a total of four faults that left him two place behind.
