Robert Splaine sticking with riders from Friday's first round for Nations Cup final

IRISH show jumping team manager Robert Splaine has announced an unchanged team for the Nations' Cup Final today when the world's top eight nations will battle it out for the new Furusiyya trophy and €1.5 million in prize money.

Ireland lines out as fourth of the teams taking part, and Splaine has confirmed he will use the same four riders and horses who ensured Ireland qualified for the final in Friday's 18-nation first round at Barcelona, Spain.

Ireland's team, in jumping order, is: Cameron Hanley/Antello Z; Denis Lynch/All Star; Shane Breen/Balloon; Billy Twomey/Tinka's Serenade.

Today's leg of the Final starts at 2.30pm Irish time, and is a one-round competition with a jump-off, if required, to decide first place.
