Mark Todd says team had no luck in cross country

New Zealand's master horseman Mark Todd admits it wasn't a great day for them at the three-day cross country, which has more or less seen them drop out of medal contention.

All the riders incurred penalties, while Andrew Nicholson had a fall and was eliminated.

It leaves the team in sixth, while Joe Meyer is the best placed individual in 19th.

Todd says he's happy with Gandolf's performance but overall it was very disappointing for the team.
