Hi all,does anybody know if you can repair a rip in a schwalbe ultremo zx,they have only been used for three rides and on the third outing today on the london to southend whilst speeding downhill through a puddle the front one goes pop hiss,instant deflate and much wobbling,on further inspection the tyre has a small rip which when inlated the tube pokes through about the size of a pen nib,can i repair this or is it a new tyre?

No way. You don't want a tyre to fail at speed. I've had to bin a new Conti 4 Season that was almost new - £35 tyre. Sometimes they do get badly cut/damaged.
