Cheltenham Gold Cup: Lord Windermere comes from last to first to snatch victory

Tense moment as stewards' inquiry had been called

Lord Windermere came from last to first to snatch victory in the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Trained by Jim Culloty, who won three Gold Cups on Best Mate as a jockey, last year's RSA Chase hero just prevailed from On His Own after an amazing run to the line.

Silviniaco Conti led over the last, but he was collared by Davy Russell on Lord Windermere (20-1), who just held the Willie Mullins-trained On his Own (16-1) by a short head.

The Giant Bolster (14-1) stayed on strongly to finish third, three-quarters of a length away.

Celebrations were quickly put on hold, however, as a stewards' inquiry was called.
