Mark Spincer, managing director of the Town Moor course said: “The Lincoln, which officially marks the start of the flat season, is always a hugely popular meeting, and this year’s raceday looks set to be no exception.

“We’ve a strong line up of horses entered over the two days and it is shaping up to be a really thrilling day of racing to get the flat season underway.”

Mr Spincer added: “There is always huge advance demand for our feature racedays. After all of the excitement of the Cheltenham Festival, we’re expecting Lincoln to be a busy meeting, so it will be more important than ever to book early.”
