RUNNERS UP: Darragh Kenny and ‘Balou du Reventon’ were runners up in Saturday’s five-star Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix at Shanghai in China. (FW19-544NN)

A brilliant performance from Ireland’s Darragh Kenny and the Ann Thompson-owned ‘Balou du Reventon’, saw them score a superb runner-up finish in Saturday’s five-star Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix at Shanghai in China.

Nine combinations made it though to the jump-off and Kenny raced into the lead when third to go against the clock – jumping clear in 38.06 seconds. That looked like being good enough to take victory, however, Israel’s Danielle Goldstein and ‘Lizziemary’ shaved eight-hundredths of a second off the target when second last to go, to take the winner’s prize.

Dutch rider Jur Vrieling filled third spot on the podium with ‘Glasgow van ‘t Merelsnest’ after also jumping clear in 40.63.
