CIAN O’Connor was just pipped for first place in the Holly Speed Stakes at the five-star Olympia London International Horse Show this afternoon (Monday).
Riding Coco 11, the Irishman was seventeenth to jump of the twenty-two starters, and went clear in 52.68, fractionally faster than long-time leader Dutchman Maikel Van der Vleuten on Kisby.
However the Meath rider was denied victory by third-last to jump Pius Schwizer of Switzerland, who got Leonard de la Ferme across the timer one third of a second faster.
O’Connor will partner Super Sox this evening in the Grand Prix at the London venue with Bertram Allen also competing on Quiet Easy.
