Lethal Force ran out a hugely impressive winner of the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot for trainer Clive Cox and jockey Adam Kirby.

The four-year-old grey made just about every yard of the running and burst clear two furlongs out.

The 4-1 favourite Society Rock made up relentless ground under Kieren Fallon and at one stage looked likely to reel in the leader.

However, Kirby kept Lethal Force up to his work and the 11-1 chance crossed the line two lengths clear.

Lethal Force had been narrowly behind Society Rock last time out at York but was 5lb worse off here.

Krypton Factor (25-1) finished well for third, with Gordon Lord Byron and Sea Siren close up behind.

Cox said: "I'm thrilled for everyone. It's just amazing - this is what it's all about.

"Adam is such a brilliant rider, but it's fantastic for the whole team at home.

"When he sent him on, it was explosive."

Kirby said: "I'm really, really pleased. We've always had a lot of respect for this horse and, to be fair to him, he's always ran his race without ever winning.

"When he hit the gate he was doing it all so easy.

"The only man I've got to thank is Clive Cox."
