Irish Show Jumping team manager Rodrigo Pessoa has named his team for tomorrow’s (Sunday) Longines FEI Nations Cup at Falsterbo in Sweden.
This will be the third of Ireland’s five points-scoring rounds in this years series, with Ireland drawn first to jump of eight teams taking part.
Ireland, sponsored by Devenish and The Underwriting Exchange, will line-out in the following order:
Wexford’s Bertram Allen with Gin Chin Van Het Lindenhof – owned by Ballywalter Bloodstock
Louth’s Mark McAuley with Utchan De Belheme – owned by Charlotte McAuley
Derry’s Daniel Coyle with Cita – owned by Ariel Grange
Limerick’s Paul O’Shea with Skara Glen’s Machu Picchu – owned by Skara Glen Stables, Whipstick Farm, P. Hurter & P. Agnew
Ireland will be up against teams from Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Britain and Sweden who will also be chasing points, while Norway and Denmark will also line-out but will be eligible for league points.
Ireland currently lie in eighth place on the league table. However many of the teams ahead of Ireland on the standings have limited chances of adding to their points tally. Third-placed Germany have already completed their five points scoring rounds, while Belgium Switzerland, France and Spain all have just one more points-scoring rounds remaining.
The Longines FEI Nations Cup of Sweden starts at 12 noon Irish time and is live on FEITV
The Irish Show Jumping Team is sponsored by The Underwriting Exchange and Devenish
