Congratulations to Team GAIN rider Padraig McCarthy who claimed the CIC3* class at Tattersalls international. McCarthy moved up  three places in the final Cross Country phase with the 16-year-old gelding Simon Portloe. The Cross Country course proved hugely influential in the final standings, with none of the field coming home inside the optimum time. McCarthy came closest to the target, adding just 4 time penalties to leave him on a winning score of 49.60.
