RACE 1 - 11.00
Prince Albert Challenge Cup
(Men's Student Four)
University of London v Newcastle University ‘A’
University of London won this from the launch. They pulled out ¾ of a length early on.
Newcastle hung in there and kept UL honest. UL were honest.
UL had the power and experience - their bow, Isaac Workman, won the Fawley Challenge Cup in 2017 & 2018.
By Barrier they were a length up, 2 by Fawley. Their lead was pulled back half a length, but a row through by Newcastle never looked likely. UL responded at the mile marker, winning by 2 ¼ lengths.
Interview with Tom Cross
(University of london)
Laura – So may fans and supporters that have come storming over here to celebrate with you, congratulations.
Tom - It’s a good day to wear purple!
It’s been a tough two years, especially with last year being cancelled, so to do it with everyone here has been amazing.
