Smyth continues to impress at Portmore

This is the second impressive result for this combination of late, having also won the Ulster Grand Prix in the Meadows in September.

This latest success for the north Tyrone man comes just six days after Smyth had claimed victory in the 1.40m SJI Autumn Grand Prix at Cavan aboard Charlton Clio.
