Shane Breen, riding bay mare Ominerale Courcelle, took first place in Satruday's Speed Classic at the five-star Hickstead Show in Britain.

US-based Richie Moloney, whose double clear round helped Ireland win Friday's Nations' Cup, pocketed claimed second place aboard the gelded Alsvid. Fellow team member Clem McMahon also took a tenth in the speed class on the Irish sport horse Point Two Elvis.

In the earlier jump-off class, Moloney finished fifth on Slieveanorra, with Breen taking eighth on Balloon. The winner was Belgium's Rik Hemeryck with Papillon Z.

At Chantilly in France, meanwhile, Tipperary's Denis Lynch was best of the Irish with a seventh place in the Global Champions Tour Grand Prix on board Abbervail van het Dingeshof, scoring four faults.

Antrim-born Jessica Kurten placed tenth on Vincente, after her four faults over two rounds. The Grand Prix winner was Germany's Hans-Dieter Dreher on bay stallion Magnus Romeo.

In Italy on Friday night, Down's Conor Swail won the jump-off class at the five-star San Patrignano show with the Guidam stallion Lansdowne.
