Timoko returned to form tonight by winning the Gr. II UET Master Series 120,000e Prix Kerjacques at Vincennes.

The Richard Westerink owned/trained classmaster scored in 1.12.7kr over the 2700 meter distance for teamster Bjorn Goop. Goop was fast off the start and gained command before yielding to Rapide Lebel in the first lap stretch.

The pair then re-took the front before yielding to Rapide du Digeon and Franck Nivard. Nivard dictated an easy pace and held the front until Timoko left the pocket and assumed the lead for good halfway down the long Paris-Vincennes stretch. Rapide du Digeon held for second with veteran Roi du Lupin third. Rapide Lebel enjoyed a three spot trip along the inner, followed Timoko's move and then tired in the stretch to finish a well-beaten sixth.
