Aboard his mount ‘Irish Sport Uppercourt Cappucino’, Richard took the top honours after winning a 24-horse jump-off.

This success comes just a couple of weeks after the Enniscrone man’s Grand Prix success in Spain.

It was a clean sweep for Ireland in Belgium with Darragh Ryan and Mike Pender taking silver and bronze too.
