Connections of Tullius believe his ability to go well after a break could hold the key to glory at Doncaster on Saturday.

Andrew Balding's Group Three-winning six-year-old, owned by Kennet Valley Thoroughbreds, has his first outing since November in the ever-competitive William Hill Lincoln.

But Sam Hoskins, who has recently assumed control of the daily running of Kennet Valley, told the Telegraph: "It will be hard to win a handicap like this off second-top weight.

"But he is always best fresh. He won his first starts at three and four but was never quite right as a five-year-old last year.

"I don't know Andrew Balding that well yet but even Nick (Robinson), who remains chairman, said he has never heard him so positive about the horse.

"He's a strong traveller who likes a strong pace and he should get that in the Lincoln."
