Newsboy tips River Nymph to land Lincoln at Doncaster Racecourse

RIVER NYMPH still has untapped potential to draw upon as he bids for a winning reappearance in the Unibet Lincoln Handicap (3.10) at Doncaster today.

My selection struck form last July when lifting a handicap over Ascot’s straight seven furlongs, beating Walhaan by a couple of lengths.

Again racing over a straight course, at Newbury in mid-August, the Clive Cox-trained four-year-old followed up in a similar event with a two-and-a-half-length margin over Tranchee.

That success was gained from a British Horseracing Authority rating of 90, and Cox would hardly have raised an eyebrow when River Nymph was reassessed on a mark of 101.

Adam Kirby’s mount didn’t shine when fancied at Ascot on Champions Day last October, but River Nymph has more to offer on the seventh outing of his career.

In the Listed Unibet Doncaster Mile Stakes (2.00), SPACE TRAVELLER is fancied to take first prize.

Richard Fahey’s son of Bated Breath was limited to just one start last year, when finishing sixth to Circus Maximus in the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot in June.

That effort reads well in the context of today’s race, as does Space Traveller’s form of 2019.

In addition to success in the Group 3 Jersey Stakes on the Royal heath, Space Traveller captured the Group 2 Boomerang Stakes at Leopardstown in September.

Kieran Shoemark’s mount escapes a penalty here and, with Fahey adamant the five-year-old has no excuses on the score of fitness, a bold show is on the cards.
