Cork’s Shane Sweetnam, who was second with Beluga in Wednesday’s speed class, rounded off Ireland’s presence in the top five of Wellington’s four-star competition tonight with a third double clear, this time riding Spy Coast Farm’s stallion Chaqui Z.

The competition was won for the fifth time in the series by Canada’s Eric Lamaze, aboard Artisan Farms’s mare Fine Lady 5, while the runner-up spot went to Argentina’s Ramiro Quintana and the mare Whitney.

Co. Down’s Conor Swail also featured in the top ten of the class, taking a ninth place on Ariel and Susan Grange’s stallion Grafton after dislodging a singe fence in the jump-off.
