Lincoln Handicap: Celebrate the New Flat Season with a Price Boost on the Favourite
We’ve enjoyed a great season of National Hunt racing and that will continue for the time being but on Saturday, it’s back to the flat and the big race takes place at Doncaster with the Lincoln Handicap. This is a one mile, flat handicap with a £100,000 purse up for grabs and ahead of the off, we have a clear favourite among the field.
6 year old Yuften leads the way with a best price among the sportsbooks of 9/2 with the likes of Paddy Power but elsewhere, new customers to 888Sport can get a rather more exciting 18/1 on this talented horse.
If you don’t already hold an account with the 888 group then you firstly need to register by heading over to the registration page and signing up with just a few basic details. This is a very quick process and once it is complete, you can move along to the cashier and make your first deposit.
Be sure to credit at least £10.00 but avoid the eWallets: use a debit or credit card as a preference and your funds should be available immediately. Now it’s time to place that bet so, select Yuften to win the Lincoln Handicap on Saturday April 1st and, if you are successful, 888Sport will pay your returns in two parts.
The first profit comes back at their standard book price and this will go straight into your account. The balance, up to that enhanced figure of 18/1, will be issued as a free bet token and you then have 7 days in which to use it before it expires.
Yuften has an advantage over the second favourite Donncha who is widely listed at a best price of 7/1 with, amongst others, Coral leading the way. Beyond that, Top Notch Tonto is third favourite at 12/1 with Ladbrokes so the bookies seem to see this as being between the first two names on the list.
Yuften’s career started slowly and Roger Charlton’s gelding’s overall record is nothing to get excited about but the horse is improving with age and is a strong tip among the recognised pundits for this race. With no odds on option, there is some value anyway in the Lincoln this weekend but if you were sizing up Yuften and you don’t have any current dealings with 888Sport, that price boost of 18/1 is something to seriously consider.
