Kauto Stone leads First Lieutenant over the last

Kauto Stone leads First Lieutenant over the last

Kauto Stone won the JNwine.com Champion Chase at Down Royal for Paul Nicholls and Daryl Jacob.

The six-year-old was following in the hoofprints of half-brother Kauto Star in winning Northern Ireland's premier chase and jumped and travelled well throughout.

The 4/1 chance went to the front between the final two fences and a fluent leap at the last sealed his win, Jacob driving Kauto Stone out to score by a length from the dogged First Lieutenant (9/2).

Last year's winner Quito De La Roque (2/1 favourite) had to settle for third spot this time around while Sizing Europe was a notable non-runner.
