The famous Lincoln handicap will be run on Saturday the 1st of April this year and it is always a race to look forward to, not only for Flat enthusiasts but for even jumps’ racing fans alike. Run at Doncaster, you need to be a right good horse to win this prestigious race and we have taken note of an interesting quote from the Channon stable with regard to their intended runner Majestic, who is currently priced 14-1 with bet365 to win the race.
Jack Channon took over training from his dad Mick in the new year and he thinks Majestic could get the yard’s season off to an absolute flyer by winning the Lincoln!
“He’s wintered really well, we’re really happy with the way he’s trained throughout the winter and into the spring,” said Channon. “He looks to have improved mentally and physically, you can almost treat last year as his two-year-old campaign.
“He had issues at three and didn’t run until he was four – this is the first clean run we’ve had with him at the start of a year. He did a fantastic piece of serious work on Tuesday morning and he’s ready to rock and roll. We’ll slow roll him into next Saturday and hopefully he’ll get in as we’re raring to go.”
“It would be a massive achievement by the whole team here at West Ilsley,” he said. “The team hasn’t really changed from year to year and it would be a back-to-back performance even with the name on the licence changing. For me, it would be a great springboard in my first year and quite the statement.”
