Only three jumped first round clears with the class won on the only double clear by Canada’s Jaclyn Duff on Eh All Or None. Spencer beat the time, but at the expense of a rail on the floor, and took third by just one hundredth of a sec behind Colombia’s Dayro Arroyave on High Tech Vy de Septon.
Four faults in the Mercedes Benz 2* small tour speed dropped Annabel Shields and My Casall to 18th.
