Prince Turbo

Turbo looks to complete comeback

Prince Turbo will be hoping to complete his return from injury with a victory in the Eurythmic Stakes (2200m) at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday.

The eight-year-old gelding trained by Jason Miller was proving himself as a Perth Cup contender prior to injuring himself in 2020.

Having completed all his rehab, the stayer by Vital Equine trialled up nicely before completing a positive return when finishing second in the Diggers Cup behind Sentimental Queen.

He will step up to 2200m second-up but did have two trials over 1450m prior to his first-up run to ensure that his fitness is at the correct level for this assignment.

Normal rider Clint Johnston-Porter will stay with his leading stable and will ride Tena Koutou for Adam Durrant after the pair won the Albany Cup last start, which has provided Chris Parnham with the opportunity to ride Prince Turbo for the first time in his career.

Sentimental Queen has opened as the favourite for the event, with Tena Koutou on the second line of betting and then Marocchino and Prince Turbo on the third-line.
