Runner-up spot also went to a Co. Waterford rider, with Tholm Keane and ‘BHM Big Time’ picking up just a time fault in the first round before jumping clear second time out. Local rider Thomas O’Brien finished third aboard ‘Scarlet Quality’ with one fence down in the jump-off, just ahead of Kelda Morgan in fourth with ‘Orbiting’. Raphael Lee finished fifth with ‘Captain Marco’, while Paul Beecher completed the top six with ‘Ikona V’T Recht Eind’.
