Holger Wulschner en Thierry Goffinet tied on first place in the Six Bars.

Great victory for Johnny Pals on Urjul van Generhese in de Derby of Flanders - Memorial Nick Motmans.

 De derby of Flanders, a 1 m 60 course with some cross country fences, was not easy as usual. None of the 11 starters jumped clear and the best result was 8 points. The five riders with 8 points were allowed to go the jump off. Johnny Pals was the last to go with his 11 years old Urjul van Generhese, he jumped clear and was almost a second faster than Dermott Lennon on Gelvins Touch. 
Johnny Pals: "Last year I was second after the jump off. I was last to go this year and a friend who saw the first riders told me that if I wanted to win I had to go full speed from the beginning until the end. I did so and everything went well!. I didn't train Urjul specially for this competition. I was in Portugal with other horses and Urjul was ridden in the meantime by a girl at home as well as in competitions upto 1 m 30. Afterwards i trained him once on natural fences."

Anthony Condon wins the prize Stephex.

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."
