Bertram was drawn last to go against the clock after producing the fastest clear in the first round with 10-year-old stallion Hector van d’Abdijhoeve. Bertram crossed the line clear (44.75) almost a second faster than Howley to take the winner's prize of €50,000. Today's rounds were definitely two of the best rounds Hector has ever jumped.

A delighted Bertram Allen said:

Hector jumped brilliant all weekend and today was probably as good as he has ever jumped. His first rounds are often quite quick, he likes to go like that, and it worked to my advantage getting drawn last to go against the clock.”
