Towkash Lands Second Prize At Port
Nov 14, 2014
The second of the Marc Quinn runners Towkash presented in race five on the Port card over 2012m with Alan Chau aboard jumping from barrier 11 in a field of 12.
As the gates flew back Chau had his mount at the rear of the field and going past the post the first time round it was Tenebrae leading the field out Royal Cymbal was second Inala Champ was in third and Scruff was fourth with some 9 lengths spanning the runners coming around the back.
Tenebrae led around the side passing the residential community with uninterrupted views of the track Inala Champ was second on the outside of Royal Cymbal and Alpresto was two lengths adrift in four, with Chau urging the Marc Quinn runner along from four deep as they had around five lengths to make up with around 450m to go.
Into the straight Alpresto had a kick Royal Cymbal was whacking away Inala Champ looked gone as Green Energy was amongst it and Towkash was putting in the big ones, however it was all in vain, as Alpresto took out the event by 3.0 lengths to Towkash, with Royal Cymbal in third and Green Energy in fourth.
