Show Jumping - Lennon Seventh In Swedish World Cup Warm-Up

IRISH WORLD CUP hopeful Trevor Coyle disappointed in the World Cup Preliminary competition at Gothenburg, Sweden tonight (Friday), when placed 43rd out of 46 starters, finishing on a total of 14 faults with his American-owned bay mare Portofino.

World Champion Dermott Lennon was the best of the Irish tonight, with a seventh place on the Irish-bred Liscalgot, while Jessica Kurten continued her impressive run of Top Ten placings at the Gothenburg show with the nine yr-old Quibell, finishing in tenth.

Though the results of tonight's World Cup Preliminary competition do not affect World Cup points, they do determine the order of jumping in the official World Cup competition tomorrow (Saturday), where a good finish by Coyle may be vital to his qualification for the World Cup Final at Las Vegas in April.
