William Hill Lincoln - Penitent tops handicap
Penitent is set to carry the top weight of 9 stone 11 as he bids for a follow-up victory in the William Hill Lincoln at Doncaster, with the sponsors quoting William Haggas colt as their 14-1 co-favourite.
The Newmarket handler, who has taken this prestigious handicap twice in the last four years, could also rely on Kalk Bay (8st 6lb), well supported in the betting at 14-1, and 16-1 shot Shamali (8st 13lb) to reward him with a third triumph.
John Gosden, successful in 2009 with Expresso Star, is represented by a quartet of hopefuls, of which three - Doctor Crane (8st 10lb), Nationalism (9st 2lb), and Taqleed (8st 9lb) - are also at the head of the market as William Hill?s 14-1 co-favourites of nine.
Malton trainer Richard Fahey enters 15 in an attempt to secure the competitive handicap which has so far has eluded him, with last year?s near-miss Prime Exhibit (16-1) allotted 8st9lb and William Hill Spring Mile winner Irish Heartbeat, one of the favourites, carrying 8st10lb.
Lucy Rhodes, spokeswoman for William Hill, said, ?Penitent looks to have a tough task at the weights, however Mr Haggas certainly knows what is required to master the Town Moor mile, and the colt remains prominent in our betting despite his weighty burden?.
