A number of these clashed in the William Hill Lincoln with Levitate coming out best, a short-head in front of Global Village with Brae Hill third and Justonefortheroad fourth. CHAPTER SEVEN wasn't far behind in sixth having looked as though he'd come on for the run and Stuart Williams' four-year-old is a sporting selection in a wide-open handicap. Captain Bertie was a leading fancy on Town Moor but never figured and is 8lb higher than when winning this 12 months ago but Educate, successful in the consolation Spring Mile at Doncaster, still looks to be heading in the right direction while Invisible Hunter could be a threat if fully recovered from whatever was wrong in the second half of last year. He beat today's rival Dream Tune in a maiden at Sandown last July. Border Legend is also fairly unexposed but Gouray Girl has more to do than when winning over 7f at Doncaster and Musselburgh second Laffan is probably also better over that shorter trip.
