Irish riders make further gains on world rankings

Several Irish riders have improved their positions on the latest Longines World Jumping rankings released today, with Ireland consolidating their strong position with 8 riders inside the top 50.

BERTRAM ALLEN

Bertram Allen (pictured) has climbed three places to No.18 as the Wexford 21-year-old continues his reign as Ireland top-ranked rider. Tipperary’s Denis Lynch remains at No.27, while Offaly’s Darragh Kenny moves up two places to 33. Cian O’Connor jumps four places to 34, with Conor Swail remaining at No.36. Billy Twomey moves up six places to 38 and his points tally still doesn’t include his Liverpool Grand Prix result which should see him improve even further next month.

Shane Sweetnam remains at 41, while Richie Moloney is up two places to 48. Other Irish riders inside the top 100 include Daniel Coyle at 83 and Anthony Condon at 97.

Germany’s Daniel Deusser goes into 2017 as the new World No.1, overtaking fellow-countryman Christian Ahlmann who had enjoyed a lengthy period in pole position, with America’s Kent Farrington at No.3.

Judy Reynolds holds onto her place as No.21 on the Dressage World Rankings which are once again headed by Germany’s Isabel Werth.
