Ireland Strikes Back In Linz

After a Fourth Place in yesterday's Nations Cup competition, Irish riders upped the ante at Linz, Austria, today (Saturday) with a First and Second Place in the 1.45m Class, the Fischer Brot Prize.

Lt. David O'Brien, who had a disappointing Nations Cup on Boherdeal Clover, switched to Lismore Clover - loaned to the Minister for Defence by Lady Moira Forbes - and romped home in First, while fellow Army rider Lt. Shane Carey took Second for Ireland on Killossery.

Lt. O'Brien also won the opening Speed Class on Friday at Linz with Lismore Clover
