SBK Lincoln: trainers give their views


SBK Lincoln (3.35 Doncaster)

Heritage Handicap | 1m | ITV/SKY


Rising apprentice star Harry Davies finds himself in the big-race Doncaster spotlight when he partners the well-fancied Godolphin runner Modern News in the SBK Lincoln.


The 17-year-old, who is attached to Andrew Balding’s stable and hopes to be champion apprentice this season, is thrilled to have been given the opportunity by trainer Charlie Appleby.


“I went to sit on Modern News on Wednesday and he’s in great order,” Davies said. “Mr Appleby has done a great job with the horse. We only cantered, but he seems in real good order and he had a buck and a squeal on the way home, which is always a good sign.”


Davies, a dual pony-racing champion, rode his first winner under rules in January, and has since added five more to his name, including Appleby’s Tranquil Night at Kempton last month.


He added: “The ground at Doncaster looks ideal for Modern News, and the draw is okay. It’s a big thrill to have a ride in the Lincoln on such a high-profile horse on only my 33rd ride. I believe the horse is in the right race, and I’m confident in my ability. It’s very exciting.”


Appleby has won the first major handicap of the Flat turf season twice in recent years, and Secret Brief (2016) and Auxerre (2019) also won the Lincoln at the beginning of their four-year-old campaigns.

What the trainers say…


William Haggas, trainer of Mujtaba, Ametist and Irish Admiral

“A lot will depend on the ground. Mujtaba wants slow ground, while the other two want it quick. Mujtaba is a nice, unexposed horse. He’s 8lb higher than for his last win, but I hope he’ll improve. Irish Admiral is more exposed, but is good fresh, while Ametist has been training well.”


Alastair Donald, racing manager to owners King Power Racing (Notre Belle Bete)

“It was a good performance from him at Wolverhampton last time. He has a nice low weight and should like the ground. I’m not sure about the draw. The penny has really dropped with him, and I think he’s going to develop into quite a useful horse this year. He’s been working to a high level at home.”


Michael Dods, trainer of Brunch
He’s well. He’s 4lb higher than when he finished second in the race last year and he was less exposed then. We’re mindful it’s a long season and he’ll improve for the run, but he does look very well.


Ed Crisford, joint-trainer of Saleymm
He’s been training really well for this race. He’s a lightly raced four-year-old and appears to have the right profile for the Lincoln. A lot of the more fancied horses are drawn around him, and I’m hoping for a very big run.


Richard Spencer, trainer of Revich
He’s in good form and ran well in the Lincoln last year when finishing sixth. It’s his first run of the year and it’s a good race to start him off in. He wasn’t beaten far last year and hopefully will give a good account of himself again.


Les Eyre, trainer of Fame And Acclaim
He’s in great nick, but we could do with a drop more of that wet stuff – his best form has been with some cut in the ground. I’m very happy with the draw, he’s been mapped out for the race, and I’ve done everything in my power to get him spot-on. His form is solid, and we got his wind done over the winter.


Richard Hannon, trainer of Teodolina
I think she’s got a very good chance. She looks well handicapped. She’s a big price, but she doesn’t know that.




Trainers Steve Asmussen, Brad Cox, and Brett Calhoun have tough

contenders looking to capture 100points in the Louisiana Derby.

• Steve Asmussen’s contender, Epicenter is listed as the 7-5 favorite on the Louisiana Derby morning line with a returning Joel Rosario on the mount.
• Brad Cox trained Zozos has yet to lose a race, but also has not competed in a Road to Kentucky Derby prep race. Brad Cox is giving him that opportunity on Saturday.
• Brett Calhoun’s Kapuna comes at 8-1, but he is no stranger to upsets. By My Standards surprised many by upsetting a strong field in the 2019 Louisiana Derby.
