Address Unknown gave enthusiastic owner Dr Marwan Koukash his second victory in the StanJames.com Chester Cup on May 8.

Koukash had four in the race and Address Unknown (12-1) did the business in his first start since joining Richard Fahey.

The Malton trainer also saddled runner-up Ingleby Spirit, who was half a length adrift at the line, while Tominator (11-1) was third and joint-top weight Simenon (16-1) fourth.

Winning jockey Jamie Spencer said: "He was very brave. He did really well with Ian Williams last year and the race went very smoothly. It's good for Dr Koukash, as well."

Koukash said: "I'm absolutely delighted. When we lost Montaser (non-runner), I thought that was my luck gone, but Jamie gave this horse a fantastic ride.

"Richard has done extremely well with the horse over the past couple of months. This is a good start for me for the meeting.

"I'm over the moon. I've been in racing five or six years and the only thing I wanted to do was win the (Chester) Cup again. Winning the Cup introduced me to racing and to do it again is absolutely wonderful."

Fahey said: "We haven't had him that long and I never checked that he normally wears blinkers and a tongue-tie. I forgot to put them on, but it didn't make any difference and we've got away with it.

"To finish first and second in a race like this is fantastic for everybody. It looked a right race on paper. Marwan said when he (Address Unknown) came to me he'd win the Chester Cup. All I did was exercise him and bring him here - and forget the blinkers and the tongue-tie!"
