Corscadden, who took over as manager earlier this year, said: “We are very much looking forward to our first Nations Cup competition at the prestigious Tattersalls venue.

“It has been a great start for the senior riders this season at Belton, Badminton and Chatsworth with very competitive performances in all three phases. Our aim is to keep building on this and have gone for a balance of experience and development of new combinations with this team.”

Commenting on the record 343 entries this year, Roger Casey, Managing Director of Tattersalls Ireland said: “Tattersalls continues to grow each year in numbers and prestige and is now well established as one of the most popular international three day events in the world.

“No other sporting event in Ireland this year will have as many Olympic Champions and medallists, World Champions and medallists and existing Olympians in the one venue at the same event.”
