Lingfield: Unforgotten 14-1 for the Lincoln after successful return.
Paddy Power reduced Unforgotten’s odds for the SBK Lincoln at Doncaster on April 1 to 14-1 (from 20-1) after he won the feature mile handicap for the first time in nearly two years under Robert Havlin.
The grey that was trained by John and Thady Gosden was backed into a 5-4 favorite from 9-4 in the morning, despite being out for 659 days.
Havlin, wearing Godolphin’s all-blue uniform, stayed wide from his stall-ten draw to take second going down the side of the track and kicked off the bend to hold off Tropez Power’s late surge. Godolphin also had a productive afternoon in Bahrain and Dubai.
Havlin said: “Obviously it was great to get Unforgotten back on track after nearly two years out and he did that well coming here on the back of four pieces of work. He’s at the right end of the handicap and hopefully can start making up for lost time.”
When Kevin Philippart de Foy’s newcomer Ermesinde pulled off a 14-1 surprise in the 1m2f maiden, he had something to help him recover from a skiing accident.
The Belgian from Newmarket suffered ligament damage to his ankle when he fell last month on the slopes, but he was able to limp into the winner’s enclosure to celebrate his sixth victory in 2023 and the third time in a row.
Jockey Daniel Muscutt, who won 46 races during the all-weather season after Inaam won the 6f classified stakes for John Butler, is almost as successful.
