BRAE Hill went one place better than last year when landing the William Hill Lincoln at Doncaster.

Trained by Richard Fahey and ridden by Tony Hamilton, the six-year-old (25-1) hit the front with two furlongs to run and clung on in the final yards from the fast-finishing Mull Of Killough (10-1) who got within a short-head.

Fury (8-1) ran on well for third, with top-weight Edinburgh Knight (11-1) narrowly back in fourth.

Favourite Eton Forever (11-2) had every chance but weakened late on into fifth, Askaud took sixth, whilst Barren Brook stayed on late in the day for seventh.

Hamilton said: “He stuck his head down and galloped to the line. I did think I had won.

“I’ve been with Richard about 10 years, we’ve always got on, and with Paul (Hanagan) getting the big job he’s got (retained rider to Sheikh Hamdan) I might get a few more opportunities, we’ll have to see.”
