Cian and his team of horses were in top form last weekend at the opening leg of the TRM Premier Series at Dundalk. Trebox Accorada, pictured left, who Cian just got before the Sunshine Tour, made the track look easy on Saturday as she galloped to victory in the Grand Prix qualifier.
The following day she jumped two sensational rounds in the Premier Series Grand Prix to finish fourth, which is the biggest result this 8yr old mare has to date. Larkhill Cruiser looked mature and happy after his few weeks' break from competition and finished third in the qualifier without coming out of the canter.
In the main event on Sunday he was one of 10 through to the jump off. Chasing fast targets set by Capt David O'Brien and Alexander Butler Cian and Joey knew what they had to do. The draw was in their favour and with a good gallop to the third jump and to the last, managing to shave fractions of a second off the others, secured the victory for Cian, making it his 7th time to win the Grand Prix at this particular venue since the year 2000.
