Lynch enjoys best World Cup result of season

Show jumper Denis Lynch had his best World Cup result of the season yesterday when fifth in Stuttgart, Germany.

In a contest boasting eight of the world’s top 10, the Tipperary native and Abbervail van het Dingeshoff negotiated one of 11 first-round clears.

While the German-based rider repeated his opening display, he was almost two seconds off the pace, earning €10,000 for his efforts and moving to 22nd on the Western European League. Frenchman Kevin Staut (Silvana HDC) spoiled the party for home fans, beating Marcus Ehning (Noltes Kuchengirl) by one-hundredth of a second to join Spaniard Sergio Alvarez Moya at the top of the league.

Tipp’s Shane Breen and Cos I Can went out of contention in round one on eight faults.

Adding a bit of rock and roll to proceedings was the participation of Bruce Springsteen’s daughter Jessica.

But the form that has made her a rising star in the US was not evident, as the 20-year-old finished with eight faults on Vornado van den Hoendrik.
