A gritty performance from Di Lampard's British team saw them qualify for the final as they won the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) Jumping Nations Cup of Ireland in Dublin.

The team of Ben Maher, Scott Brash, Emily Moffitt and Holly Smith were lying last on the leaderboard going into the final leg of the Europe Division 1 series but booked their place in the final in Barcelona with a commanding win in Dublin.

Britain claim the last of seven spots in Barcelona for the October World Final, which offers team qualification for Tokyo 2020, as Germany, the Netherlands and Austria missed out.

At the Dublin Horse Show, Brash with Hello Jefferson and Moffitt on board Winning Good jumped clear as Maher picked up a single time fault on Concona.

Italy were their closest rivals for glory but trailed behind on 12 points after two fences were knocked down and a further four time faults were added.

Hosts Ireland finished third on 16 faults with Switzerland fourth on 21 faults.

The results saw Ireland finish in third place in the Longines FEI Nations Cup league table with 330 points, 10 points behind joint winners Switzerland and Italy.
