Nicole Lockhead (Emerald Irish Cruise) took the Six Year Old qualifier before Will Fletcher claimed the Seven Year Old top spot with Baloutero.
Helen Rees scored a win in the EQ Horseboxes RIHS 1.20m Open with Bianca Du Rouet, while the final Winter Grades B&C Qualifier went to Shane Breen (Vistogrand), with the pair finishing just 0.22sec ahead of Louise Simpson and Starouge.
