While the lead remained firmly in Jones's capable hands, John Nicholson's track had a strong influence on the rest of the field. Two-time previous winner Gordon ridden by Alice Montgomery shifted into second place after producing a confident clear round to finish the day on 52.6 penalties.
Another previous winner, Oakley Vision and Clarke Johnstone, also delivered a smooth clear round with 5.6 time penalties to finish on 61.2 penalties. Other combinations to deliver clear rounds were Heelan Tompkins and Major Difference (64.0 penalties), Jenna Mahoney (66.0 penalties), and Karen Niederer on Cape Palliser (79.6 penalties).
