A win at his second workout in just a few days looks to have Sir Lincoln ‘spot on’ going into next week’s Spring Cup at Alexandra Park.
Sir Lincoln beat a quality workout field including; Statesman, Devil Dodger, Pembrook Benny and Supremacy at Pukekohe yesterday. In doing so he impressed with a dashing last quarter and even more so with a smooth beginning from the standing start.
Sir Lincoln ran the 2500-metre workout in a slow overall time of 3.30.1 but his dash home, coupled with his good manners please trainer Ray Green no end. He ran his final sections in 57.6 and 27.5 respectively – good numbers around the boutique track.
Sir Lincoln is now set to dominate betting in next week’s Spring Cup that may attract a field of around eight horses. There was the potential for more, however Steven Reid’s two charges Gold Ace and Easy On The Eye will travel south earlier in the week.
Other likely candidates in the Spring Cup may include Jarcullembra for Geoff Small, Five Star Anvil, Aslan and The Wild Card.
