ATHLONE’s Francis Derwin (16) is certainly making his presence felt in the Gain Equine Nutrition/Alltech Ireland National Grand Prix League as he lodged his second win of the series at Portmore Equestrian Centre last Saturday.

Riding Deep Pockets, he was the fastest of eight double clears in the 47-combination strong class. Not content with the win, the junior rider also took second place with Killerisk Can Ya. Derwin also took the round at Barnadown with AGH Whiterock Cruise Down, just a few weeks ago.
