France’s Simon Delestre and Chesall Zimequest (by Casall) take a second consecutive victory in the main class of the second day at Knokke Hippique. This time, the world number one was only a touch faster than runner-up Daniel Deusser aboard Zoe II (by Kannan). Simon Delestre’s compatriot Kevin Staut finished on third position with Silver Deux de Virton HDC (by Kashmir vh Schuttershof).

Belgium’s François Mathy Jr. settled for the fourth spot with Polinska des Isles (by Diamant de Semilly), while France’s leading lady rider Pénélope Leprévost finished fifth with Nice Stephanie (by Cardento). The Olympic pair Nick Skelton and Big Star (by Quick Star) were in no hurry and finished ninth, while Damien Haelterman just could not make it into the top ten with Hooligan de Laubry (by Clinton).
