Equestrianism: Breen sets out Derby claims with Dorada win

Shane Breen must have shortened his odds for Sunday's DFS Derby when he rode Dorada to victory on yesterday's opening day of the British Jumping Derby Meeting.

Breen won the Bunn Leisure Derby Tankard by a whisker from David McPherson on Naomi 241, with Anthony Condon third on Micky Finn. Geoff Luckett won the earlier Silver Salver on Little Lefanie, who was last to go when defeating long-time leader, Jo Pay on Gold, by a cool 2.09sec.
