SHANE Breen and the Irish-bred Compelling Z raced to victory in the three-star Grand Prix at Drammen in Norway, where Irish riders produced an extraordinary run of results, including victory in the Nations Cup.

Breen scored a total of four victories at the venue, including the team win and Friday’s feature Grand Prix. Friday’s 1.60m feature was a competitive affair, with 38 combinations lining out in the opening round. Eight made it through to the jump-off, including three Irish riders.
