Swedish star Oliver Berntzon bagged 11 paid 12 for Ostrow, with 2012 world champion Chris Holder tallying 10. The meeting was marred by a heavy crash for Polish veteran Grzegorz Walasek, who was taken to hospital for further checks after his fall in heat eight.

Elsewhere, Michelsen racked up a 17 paid 18-point maximum for Lublin as they romped to a 58-32 victory at home to Leszno.
