Again Dujardin showed her strength together with the young mare MSJ Freestyle
Power balanced trot tour with super expression, lacking balance for the 1st piaffe tour with just a few balanced steps, super walk tour, 2nd piaffe with better balance lack bit more clear transition from piaffe to passage, small error for 2 times, error at change by X between two good pirouettes, small stop before final piaffe, but continues with very nice steps, super final passage and halt.
2nd is Carl Hester with Hawtins Delicato nice well balanced trot tour, tensions for the 1st piaffe tours, as it looks like he goes into the piaffe with a bit to much pressure and becomes to quick in the rhythm and loosing the balance and stops, much better 2nd piaffe tour with good transitions and nice passage, good canter tour just a small tension for the 2nd pirouette which becomes slightly over turned, bit cautious final piaffe.

It was a come back for Olympic combination Spencer Wilton with Super Nova II as we haven't seen them at the international scene since September 2017 at Damstadt-Kranichstein. The entire test is shown very conservative, as this combination is use to show a lot of power all the way. A clear test with just a couple of extra changes between the pirouettes. 75,848%
Even though the scoring today shows that they are back, and it still not too late for the battle for a team spot for WEG, it looks like a bit of a challenge to get rid of either Gareth Hughes or Emile Faurie, which both has been very consistent, with fit horses and with good scores lately.
