Michael Blake’s Irish Show Jumping team of Galway’s Michael Duffy, Sligo’s Richard Howley, Mayo’s Michael G Duffy and Louth’s Mark McAuley have finished fourth of 14 teams in today’s (Friday) Czech Nations Cup in Prague.

Michael Duffy was clear approaching the last part of the course with Zilton SL Z, when he lost his footing on landing after the third last fence, meaning Duffy had to circle and he would finish with four jumping and four time faults as a result.

Second in for Ireland, Sligo’s Richard Howley and Arlo De Blondel, picked up 4 faults at the very last fence and a time fault, before Mayo’s Michael G Duffy with Lapuccino 2 (ISH), , also finished with five faults. Ireland’s anchor rider, Co Louth’s Mark McAuley with Jasco VD Bisschop  then delivered a vital clear which meant Ireland would be one of the eight teams to make the cut for the second round.
