Darragh Kenny has won another major five-star class with victory at the Longines Global Champions Tour show in Paris.

The Offaly rider, who last weekend took the Belgian Rolex Grand Prix, partnered the 10-year-old gelding Christos in the Massimo Dutti 1m55 and was the only rider to jump clear in under 66 seconds to take the top prize of €15,000.

The opening round of the Global Champions League in Paris saw St Tropez Pirates take the lead, while Tipperary’s Hickstead-based rider Shane Breen helped Miami Celtics to second place with a clear round aboard Ipswich Van De Wolfsakker.

Cian O’Connor’s Valkenswaard United are in sixth place with the second round to come today.
