CORK’S Anthony Condon and the nine year-old bay stallion Aristio led an Irish whitewash of the big feature class at the three-star show in Lisbon, Portugal tonight (Saturday).

Condon won the jump-off competition and the 3,000 euro first prize, but four other Irish riders also featured in the top ten of the 54-strong field.

Close behind Condon in second place was Kilkenny’s Marion Hughes with the bay gelding Can Ya Makan, while Trevor Breen and Classic took fifth, all three on double clear rounds.

In seventh was Michael G. Duffy aboard Bocello, while Vincent Byrne and Hannibal v. Overis Z claimed ninth place.

Irish riders also did well in the following Six-Bar competition at Lisbon, with Michael G. Duffy partnering Wilton John VDL into third place, and Thomas O’Brien and Amaretto sharing fourth with Vincent Byrne and Mr Rockefeller. The class was won by Belgium’s Karline De Brabander and Bamako de Muze.
