Alfie produced the quickest double clear of the class with Quantum Light, a 21-year-old bay gelding owned by Shelley Anthony. Riding with accuracy and pace, Alfie negotiated the jump off course cleanly in a time of 35.22 seconds which was to be enough to give him 1.09 seconds in hand over his nearest rival.

Grace Sinclair took second place on Crème de la Crème after securing her double clear in 36.31 seconds. Sophie Wicks then went on to fill both third and fourth place on Zodianne van de Doevenbree and King Mac respectively after achieving double clears on both rides.
