Teodoro wins for Tom Dascombe and Richard Kingscote
Richard Kingscote had Tom Dascombe’s Teodoro smartly out of the stalls and was soon dictating affairs from the front.
The crucial stage of the race came when Kingscote stole a few lengths on the home turn. The move proved decisive, as Teodoro (10-1) maintained the gallop to come home from Brorocco by three and a quarter lengths, with favourite Zaaki in third.
It was a double for Kingscote and Dascombe after the victory of No I’m Easy (6-1) in the Smarkets Handicap.
Dascombe said: “When you have a jockey like that, who is riding with such supreme confidence, there’s absolutely no need to give him instructions. In fact he tells me how he will ride them, not the other way round.
“I think he is just different class.”
He added: “We came here because having looked at the Ebor there was another two weeks to go and he has to have fast ground, so it was a good decision and I suppose we could still look at York.”
Kingscote said: “This horse has done really well this year, and it’s a big thank you to Paul Gallagher who rides the horse in all his work and has got him beautifully relaxed.
“Halfway up the straight I thought I had possibly overdone it, but thankfully that wasn’t the case.”
