Haqeeqy and De La Sayette land Lincoln

Haqeeqy powered to a very taking victory in the Unibet Lincoln Handicap at Doncaster under apprentice Benoit De La Sayette.

The youngster, who claims 7lb, had to sit and wait in behind horses for much of the journey, but never panicked and once in the clear the John and Thady Gosden-trained gelding rocketed clear in the manner of a smart performer.

Sent off at 9-2, the winner finished a length and a half clear of Brunch, with Hortzadar third and Danyah fourth.
