Dunstall Orpen For Business
William Hill have priced up their sponsored Lincoln Trial Handicap at Wolverhampton on Saturday, installing Norman Orpen as 11-2 market leader.
The Jane Chapple-Hyam-trained gelding tops a field of 13 entries at the declaration stage on Thursday.
Hughie Morrison's Nazreef is next in the betting at 6-1, whilst last year's William Hill Lincoln runner-up Prime Exhibit is 7-1.
Lucy Rhodes, spokeswoman for William Hill, said ‘Norman Orpen heads the William Hill Lincoln Trial at 11-2, but will need to win at Dunstall Park if he is to book a ticket for the main event in three weeks. However he boasts solid course form from his short career, and has shown steady improvement since joining Jane Chapple-Hyam'.
