Roger Varian positive about Lincoln contender

TRAINER Roger Varian has issued an upbeat bulletin about his William Hill Lincoln candidate Gladys' Gal, 10-1 joint-third favourite with the sponsors for Saturday's cavalry charge, the draw for which will be made on Thursday.

The five-year-old was last seen when winning on Town Moor as long ago as July 2011, but is she ready to start back.

Varian said: "She seems to be working well and hopefully she can overcome her inexperience. Whatever happens it's a good starting point for her after 20 months off."

Fellow Newmarket challenger Dance And Dance, available at 40-1 with the sponsors, misses the race and will run instead in a conditions contest at Kempton on the same afternoon.

The ground at Doncaster is drying out ahead of Saturday's Lincoln meeting, which was postponed from a week ago.

Clerk of the course Roderick Duncan said on Wednesday: "I walked the track this morning, and it is better than when we raced on it last Friday and is now soft (from soft, heavy in places).

"There is still a little snow lying around, but with a little work we could have raced this morning. There are a few wintry showers forecast but daytime temperatures are set to hit 4C between
now and Saturday."
