Northallerton rider Nicola Wilson’s Olympic hopes were dashed on Monday night, after she was left out of the selectors’ final team. Riding Opposition Buzz, Wilson was widely tipped to be part of the final five alongside William Fox-Pitt, Mary King and Piggy French. But selectors opted for Tina Cook and Zara Phillips after her impressive weekend at Bramham.

Wilson finished 11th in the CIC at Bramham Park.
