The feature competition of the Gala Performance was the Blue Chip Grand Prix which had a field of over 50 competitors which saw 11 going forward to the jump off.

William Funnell was second to go with the first of his three rides Rio who jumped clear in a time of 36.42 holding the lead until the 10th to go Nigel Coupe and Golvers Hill took up the challenge and had clear round in 35.52.With William last to go with Billy Congo and went clear but just missed winning by half a second, but securing both second and third place.
