Coyle Wins Eindhoven Derby

IRELAND'S TREVOR Coyle has clinched the prestigious Eindhoven Derby in the Netherlands today (Sunday) with the American-owned bay mare <Fleur>, and picks up a brand new Audi A3 car for his efforts.

Dungannon-born Coyle (42) was Ireland's only entrant in the Show Jumping World Cup at Las Vegas in April, and has been staging a comeback during the last 12 months on the international circuit. He was runner-up in the World Cup in 1999, riding the Irish-bred stallion <Cruising>.

He finished the first round of the Eindhoven Derby with one of only three clear rounds, and with a single pole down in the second round, could not be reached by runner-up Michel Robert of France, who picked up eight faults.
