Great Britain showjumping chief Rob Hoekstra has made two changes to his squad for the FEI Nations Cup event in Rome on May 25.

Olympic hopefuls Tina Fletcher and Will Funnell, who were both members of the victorious British Nations Cup team at Hickstead in 2010, have both been named among a five-rider group.

Top British duo Nick Skelton and Ben Maher are given a breather, with Oxfordshire-based Fletcher selected aboard Hello Sailor and Surrey-based Funnell named on Billy Angelo.

Guy Williams (Depardieu vant Kiezelhof), Peter Charles (Murka's Vindicat W) and Scott Brash (Hello Sanctos) are retained following the Nations Cup opener in France five days ago, when Britain finished fifth.
