Second-favorite Tower of London won his first Grade 1 title after darting past the pack at Nakayama Racecourse on Sunday to claim the Sprinters Stakes as G1 action resumed after the summer break.

French jockey Christophe Lemaire steered Tower of London through the middle of the 16-horse field, then sprung ahead in the final stretch to cross in 1 minute, 7.1 seconds, a half-length in front of third-favorite Mozu Superflare, who led for most of the race.
