SHOW jumper Liam O’Meara established a commanding lead on the SJI National Grand Prix league last Sunday when he took victory in the round at Charleville, Co Cork.

Along with the 10 league points on offer for the winner, O’Meara took the lion’s share of the €5,000 on offer in the Dicks Supervalu of Charleville-sponsored class. Now at the halfway point of the league, O’Meara lies in pole position on 79 points, while his closest rival, Francis Connors, has clocked up 31 points.
