EGYPT’s Sameh El Dahan won the most lucrative puissance class in Europe last Saturday evening when he was the only rider at the RDS to clear the massive 2.20 metre wall - 7ft 2in - writes Roisin Sheridan.

El Dahan landed the winner’s prize of €12,400 on Seapatrick Cruise Cavalier for the achievement, the horse volunteered for the competition by Co Antrim teenager Chris Megahey who was too young to enter the RDS event himself.
