CHELTENHAM, England (AP) -- Lord Windermere stormed through the field in the final stretch to win the Gold Cup in a photo finish in front of a sellout crowd of 67,500 at the Cheltenham Festival on Friday.

After two false starts and a tight finish, the horse trained by Jim Culloty and ridden by Davy Russell snatched the prestigious race by a nose ahead of On His Own.

A stewards' inquiry was held at the end of the race because Lord Windermere had drifted into On His Own after they went over the last hurdle. But officials concluded the winner had not hampered its rival during his run to the line.

The Giant Bolster finished third while favorite Bobs Worth ended fifth.
