Ireland’s David Simpson claimed the Templant Events Queen Elizabeth II Cup this afternoon.

Riding the 11-year-old grey mare Chessy 17, he posted a clear round in a time of 47.85sec to go ahead of Holly Smith and Lammy Beach. Last to go was the former Hickstead Derby winner Phillip Miller, who posted the fastest time of the day with 46.51sec, but four faults cost them the win and relegated them to fourth place.

It was a good day for Ireland, with Billy Twomey scoring a valuable double of international wins today. He won the Bunn Leisure Salver this morning with Diaghilev, before taking the British Speed Classic with Thomas. The in-form Irishman has now won three international classes at this year’s Longines Royal International Horse Show.
