Cape jockey Richard Fourie rode a determined race over the sand mile for trainer Weiho Marwing and owner Hassen Adams. His recent unplaced effort in the Gr1 Horse Chestnut aside, the little chestnut warrior just does not know how to run a bad race and he clocked up a superb eleventh win by gunning the 11 to 10 favourite Pylon down inside the final stages of what had always looked a competitive race. Uncle Tommy went off at 8 to 1. The merit of the win is further underlined by the fact that the top two carried level weights with the bay Pylon outstripping the Marwing runner rated in terms of the stature of his frame and his stride. The two drew away with Uncle Tommy going on too powerfully as he overtook Pylon at the m marker to draw clear and win by 1,25 lengths in a time of 99,18 secs. The top two were well clear and outclassed the rest with The Mouseketeer edging into third place and some 16 lengths behind the winner. Richard Fourie said that Uncle Tommy was usually sluggish out of the gates but that he had shown enthusiasm as he cut to the inside and found a match winning rails position from his 7 draw.
When Shipping a pair of characters, fans often combine the characters' names into a portmanteau word. They then use this word to refer to the couple as a unit. CamelCase is optional.
In a break from tradition, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced afterwards that the winning favorite would stay with his current trainer despite carrying the royal blue. He had a busy time up to Ascot , but afterwards it was a nice break for him, and he did very well at The Curragh last time. It is very hard to say at this stage, but I have no doubt that he will get further than a mile next year.
