TIPPERARY'S Shane Breen and Derry-born David Simpson have filled the top two places in Saturday's 1m45 Accumulator competition at the five-star Dubai Show Jumping Championships, which are being held at Emirates Equestrian Club in the United Arab Emirates.

Simpson stopped the clock in 50.96 with the 11-year-old stallion Unex Cognac IV to take runner-up spot and almost €6,000.

Ramzy Al Duhami from Saudi Arabia took third place of the 34 starters with High Quality J and in a time of 52.73.

Shane Breen and David Simpson will both be among 41 starters in today’s Longines FEI World Cup qualifier in Dubai which is part of the Arab League and carries a prize fund of almost €150,000.
