Irish Olympian Aoife Clark swept to victory at the three-star Bramham event in England.

Riding the Irish Sport Horse mare Fenya's Elegance, Dublin-born Clark made up lost ground during Saturday's cross country phase after trailing British rider Izzy Taylor's remarkable dressage score of 28.1,

She was in second place before the final show jumping phase in Yorkshire today, where she narrowly snatched victory with a zero score against Taylor and Orlando's four faults.

Ireland's Mark Kyle with the Irish Sport Horse Coolio also turned in a clear jumping round at Bramham today, lifting them from overnight 12th to a seventh-placed finish.

Despite having three fences down, Clark also claimed 12th place with Vaguely North in the three-star event.
