Sumo's Zorro, with Egypt's Sameh El Dahan riding, won the big-money Barclay Communications International Grand Prix, while Edward Butler rode Caugherty to victory in the AON Risk Services International Accumulator on the final day of the Balmoral Show at the Maze.

It rounded off a great three days of showjumping - top riders from home and abroad competing - which delighted the huge crowds that flocked to the show.

Sumo's Zorro edged out Derryinver Luxury Cruise, with Catherine Thornton aboard, in the £22,000 feature. Caugherty triumphed over Douglas Duffin-ridden Chiquito, for an Ireland success against Great Britain.
