BANDON’S Trish Ryan finished third at the three-star class in

faults in the show jumping phase drop her two places on the leaderboard,
with Townend on a clear round claiming the winner’s rosette, while
Belgium’s Stephanie D’Andrimont and Alexander IV collected four faults
today to bring the combination into second place.

Carlow’s Sam Watson, however, maintained his overnight top five places
with two clear rounds, one on Imperial Sky (ISH)(TIH) to finish in
fourth, and one on Horseware Bushman (ISH)(TIH) to claim fifth.

at Ballindenisk with Be Touchable, while fellow British rider Matthew
Wright won the CCI1* with Rakam D’Emra.

Irish in fourth place.

In the CIC2* class, Ireland’s Cathal Daniels held onto his dressage
score on Sammy Davis Junior (ISH) to claim the trophy, with Lucy Latta
