Ten declared but three were non-runners at the start. After a tightly packed run, a quick sprint to the front on the stretch by Van den Troost on Jamas D.A. created a three-way tie that was decided by the finish photo. Second by a nose was Madjy and third was Ziggy D.A. Fourth place was Tasha D.A.

Johan Verstrepen of Dijkhoeve Arabians also bred the third and fourth placed horses and received the Breeders Premium.
