The third place was held by another German representative as was Philipp Weishaupt and Liberty Son (Clooney x Lord Z) in time of 33.59 seconds, while the top five Damm Trophy have supplemented the Italian duo Emanuele Bianchi and Luca Maria Moneta in the fourth fifth place respectively.

For Latinos Mexican Alberto Michan was 30 FEI Ranking Points finishing in 9th place with the 13 years old gelding Carusso LS La Silla (Montebello La Silla x Joost) to be the highlight in time 37.80 seconds and 4 fouls. The Colombian Carlos Lopez so far had the best results, successfully completes the top 16, which are placed in scoring points at World Ranking, left out of the winning round to exceed the allowed time and be penalized with one fault missing in 66.14 seconds on the 8 years old mare Cuplandra (Upgrade x Metall).
