Ireland's Aoife Clark and Fenyas Elegance triumphed in the CCI three-star class at the Equi-Trek Bramham International Horse Trials on Sunday.

British eventer Izzy Taylor was hoping to land a second major title in eight days, and led throughout the dressage and cross-country phases.

She was last to go in the showjumping aboard Orlando, but a fence down early in their round meant that Clark claimed victory.

The consistent Clark, who won impressively at the Blenheim International in Oxfordshire last September, earlier jumped clear to finish on a score of 46.2 penalties, which piled the pressure on Taylor.

Four faults gave Taylor a final score of 46.9 and left her in second spot after she won the Tattersalls event in Ireland on Allercombe Ellie last Sunday.
