Trainer David Simcock believes the best is yet to come from Whispering Warrior as he prepares the five-year-old for the William Hill Lincoln at Doncaster on Saturday week...
Whispering Warrior leapt to the top of the ante-post market for the first big handicap of the new Flat Turf season when winning the Lincoln Trial at Wolverhampton earlier this month. The Lincoln is an extremely competitive race, however, and, although Whispering Warrior heads the market, he can still be backed at 14.5n/a on the Betfair Exchange.
"I've been really pleased with him," Simcock told At The Races.
"He won the Lincoln Trial well. I don't know quite how good a race it was, but he couldn't have done it any better. He's come out of his race really well and I'd like to think he's blossomed. His work has been good.
"We've got a plan for him. After the Lincoln he'll have a mini-break, then he'll go to York, then to Ascot and we'll work from there.
"He could eventually end up going to Dubai next year."
Also towards the fore of the Lincoln market is the in-form Rebellious Guest, available to back at 17.016/1, who runs in the Winter Derby at Lingfield on Saturday March 22.
