Timoshenko chasing fifth win on the trot at Musselburgh


By Anita Chambers

Timoshenko looks a good bet to stretch his winning streak to five in the Archerfield Cup Handicap at Musselburgh tomorrow.

The type of horse trainer Sir Mark Prescott has made his reputation with, Timoshenko has thrived this term when stepped up to long trips, after showing little as a two-year-old.

He is unbeaten so far this term, with his latest victory coming over this distance of two miles at Chepstow two weeks ago.

The Archipenko gelding has gone up 16lb since his spree began, but may still have more to come.

Armageddon got off the mark at the second attempt when making all over six furlongs at Haydock and can win the EBF Edgen Murray Stakes.

The Bryan Smart-trained youngster finished eyecatchingly on debut to take third place in a Thirsk maiden.
