Trevor Coyle added to the Irish ribbons at the three-star show in Lummen, Belgium today (Friday) when claiming a win in the Rolex-ranked jump-off class aboard the bay mare Jubilee d'Ouilly.
The Derry-born rider outpaced Italian challenger Emanuele Gaudiano and Dassino by a narrow three-hundredths of a second in the 31-horse jump-off, from a huge field of 88 starters.
Yesterday, Alexander Butler and Paddy Musgrave's Irish-bred mare Riverside Ace took the honours in Lummen's featured one-round 1.45m speed class, while in the 1.40m competition Clones-born Clem McMahon and Baloufina lost out to Swiss winner Werner Muff and Donna by just over two seconds to take the runner-up spot.
Butler again featured in this competition, placing third with the Irish-bred stallion Lowhill Ambassador, while Coyle took ninth position on the chesnut gelding Kanouk Des Essarts.
The €23,000 Belgian Grand Prix takes place at Lummen on Sunday afternoon.
