Cian and Complete jumped the only clear round in what proved to be a disappointing day for the Irish at La Baule's FEI Meydan Nations' Cup, when the team did not qualify for the second round after their first round score of 18 faults.
Cian said: "Yes, it was disappointing for us as a team. But it's early days yet, and I think we will gather momentum as we move through Rome and St. Gallen in the months ahead. Complete was confident on the big course today, and jumped it very easily. I'm very pleased with him."
