Pippa Funnell maintained her lead with Billy Beware to take the three-star trophy at the final show jumping phase at Tattersalls Horse Trials this afternoon, while Ireland’s Sarah Ennis moved up to fourth.

A clear round from 44-year-old Sussex eventer Funnell added zero faults to her overnight score of 47.6, but Meath-based Ennis moved up one place to fourth despite incurring two time faults, ending on 55.1 with the Irish Sport Horse BLM Diamond Delux.

Australia's Bill Levett and Improvise claimed the runner-up spot on a total of 52.5, while Funnell with her other mount, Billy Landretti, again went clear on the final phase to come home in third.

Two other Irish riders finished in the top ten at the Meath venue, with Shane Power and TLB Interactive going clear to take eighth place, while Mark Kyle and Just Otto had one time fault in show jumping to claim ninth position overall.
