The Lincoln is one of the early season Flat highlights.

The Lincoln Handicap is a race run at Doncaster in late March, early April and is open to horses aged four years or older. One of the star attractions at the start of the Flat season, the Lincoln Handicap is run over one mile and is a hugely competitive betting heat for punters to get stuck into. It can be a race that sees experienced handicappers locking horns with progressive milers, with winners of this race often seen competing in Group races later in the season, and some that even going on to race at Royal Ascot later in the year.

What is the Lincoln Handicap? 

The Lincoln Handicap is a race run at Doncaster taking place at the start of the Flat season and attracts a competitive field of milers all look to land the spring showpiece. Often regarded as the curtain-raiser to the Flat season, the Lincoln Handicap is targeted by all the major trainers who are hoping that they have a future Group star that could be competing in some Pattern races at Royal Ascot. A prestigious event in its own right, the Lincoln is a real punting head-scratcher as very seldom do you have a horse that dominates proceedings.

First run in 1853, the Lincoln Handicap was first run at Doncaster in 1965 having been held at Lincoln before that track's closure in 1964, and along with the St Leger it is one of the most prestigious races to be run at Doncaster racecourse. In recent years it has seen some notable winners with the William Haggas-trained Penitent landing the prize for favourite backers in 2010, while Haggas tasted more success in 2018 with Addeybb, who went on to excel in Group company in Australia to show that this race can often throw up a classy winner.

What happened in the 2019 Lincoln Handicap?

Charlie Appleby's Auxerre sauntered to victory in the 2019 Lincoln Handicap, as having been well-backed into 5/2 favourite the Godolphin raider kicked clear of his rivals in the closing stages to land the spoils in impressive fashion. While jockeys in behind race leader Auxerre were getting lower in the saddle, James Doyle on Auxerre was still tanking along on the bridle, and once Doyle pressed the button for his charge to win the race, Auxerre kicked clear to beat Kynren by over two lengths.
