SHOW JUMPING - SPLAINE NAMES AGA KHAN SQUAD FOR DUBLIN

IRELAND'S Show Jumping Team Manager Robert Splaine has named the five Irish riders who will make up the squad for this year’s Aga Khan trophy at the Failte Ireland Dublin Horse Show.
The squad in alphabetical order is:
  • Shane Breen; Carmena Z
  • Dermott Lennon; Hallmark Elite
  • Denis Lynch; Nabab’s Son
  • Cian O’Connor; K Club Lady
  • Billy Twomey; Tinka’s Serenade
Speaking after the announcement Robert Splaine said he was reverting to the same five that he had sent to Aachen in Germany, where they subsequently won the Nations’ Cup.
"These five riders were the squad for Aachen, however Shane brings ‘Carmena Z’ while Denis brings ‘Nababs Son’."
Splaine pointed out that four of the combinations selected had jumped double clear rounds in the series during the season, with Billy Twomey and ‘Tinka’s Serenade’ jumping a clear and a four in two earlier Meydan Nations’ Cups.
"Shane and ‘Carmena Z’ had a double clear in La Baule, while Denis and ‘Nabab’s Son’ did the same at Falsterbo.
"Cian and Dermott had double clears at Aachen, and Billy was outstanding as the pathfinder there, jumping a four and a clear. This form has been achieved at the highest level and stands up, and is what you need going into a competition like the Aga Khan Trophy," he said.
Splaine said that he expected the teams in Dublin to be the strongest countries can field and competition to be fierce over the next two rounds at Hickstead and Dublin, with so many teams still in threat of relegation.
 
The Nations Cup at Hickstead takes place next Friday, July 30th, and after the Aga Khan competition four teams will be relegated from the Meydan Superleague for 2011.
"While we have really improved our position we are still not safe and there are five teams really under pressure and all of these countries will be fighting for their show jumping lives," he said.
Ireland last won the Aga Khan trophy in 2004.
 
Ten teams will compete in the Aga Khan competition, which takes place at the Failte Ireland Dublin Horse Show on Friday, August 6th at 3pm and will be shown live on RTE.
