Viscount Nelson storms Fort
Mike de Kock and Kevin Shea combined to win the Group 2 Al Fahidi Fort for a third time when Viscount Nelson won the 1600m turf feature at Meydan on a six race card sponsored by Al Tayer Motors on Thursday evening.
It was a fifth win in the race in seven years for Shea and fourth in total for de Kock who also saddled the third, Master Of Hounds. The pair were split by the Doug Watson-trained Albaasil who looked the likely winner when hitting the front 200m out but could not hold the late challenge of Shea and Viscount Nelson.
