God's Own and jockey Paddy Brennan took advantage of hot-favourite Vautour's fall to win the Melling Chase at Aintree on Friday
Brennan recorded a second Grade One race win of the week, following his victory on Cue Card on Thursday, with a two and three-quarter lengths win over Al Ferof, with Clarcam third.
Brennan seemed to be battling it out for the minor places until the Willie Mullins-trained Vautour clipped the ninth fence, causing jockey Ruby Walsh to fall, and the Tom George-trained runner eased past Clarcam, then Al Ferof in the closing stages.
"I'm so pleased to ride one for Tom George," Brennan said afterwards.
"The horse's not the easiest ride and there's been plenty of times when I didn't get it right so it's good to do it today."
Somersby, who finished fourth, has been retired following the race.
The 12-year-old, who was second in last year's Champions Chase, won seven times from 40 starts including the Grade 1 Clarence House Chase at Ascot in 2012.
