Shergar Cup: Ladies team hold off late Ireland surge for victory as Silver Saddle winner Nicola Currie stars

Nicola Currie was the star of the show as the Ladies team held off a late charge by Ireland to win the Shergar Cup at Ascot.

Currie, making her debut in the competition, won two of the six races to seal the Silver Saddle award for leading rider and propel her team to the top of the table.

Ireland enjoyed a one-two in the final race as they almost propelled themselves from last in the standings to first, but Currie added a vital seven points with Royal Scimitar coming home third.
