Nineteen-year-old Camilla Speirs from Kildare produced the best performance of the Irish contingent at Burnham Market in England on Saturday with a fourth-placed finish in the Q section of the three-star event with the Irish-bred Portersize Just a Jiff.

The section was won by Australia's Paul Tapner on Stormhill Michael with second and third places going to Britain's Piggy French and Oliver Townend respectively.

In the P section of the three-star event, last year's Tattersalls World Cup Qualifier winner Patricia Ryan was seventh with the Irish-bred Fernhill Clover Mist, while another Irish-bred horse Ashdale Cruise Master took first with Britain's Oliver Townend on board.

Carlow's Sam Watson piloted another Irish-bred GFG Rambo Man into ninth in the two-star event, which was won by Britain's Piggy French and Paris.
