Horse Racing: Denman delivers.

Byline: BY MARTIN KELLY

DENMAN took another step up the ladder and capped a magical Christmas for Paul Nicholls and Ruby Walsh with a foot-perfect display in the Lexus Chase - the feature event of the Leopardstown Christmas Festival.

Just 48 hours after stablemate Kauto Star grabbed Gold Cup favouritism back from Denman following his King George victory, the giant seven-year-old responded in taking fashion by capturing his first Grade One event outside novice company.

With no early pace, Walsh elected to send the 4-9 favourite into the lead as they sailed over the third fence and the outcome was never in doubt thereafter.
