“It was definitely a thrilling jump-off; it was fast, and with Daniel and Peder both having good rounds, I knew I had to take many risks. My horse jumped fantastic today, so it was nice to come out on top.”

It was a fast and furious nine-rider jump-off. Daniel Deusser and Jasmien vd Bisschop made a rollback to the penultimate fence, risking it all and stopping the time at 35.96 seconds, which for a while looked unbeatable.

Winner of this class in 2019, Peder Fredricson, gave it everything but couldn’t quite match the pace of the German, falling just behind him in 36.38 seconds.

Bertram Allen and the huge-striding Pacino Amiro then powered around the course and were exactly level with Daniel at the halfway stage. They sprinted down the final line and took an angle to the last, shaving milliseconds off the time to take the win in 35.92 seconds.

A happy Bertram could return home from Sweden with two wins & two runner-ups, an absolutely brilliant weekend.
