Peter Chapple-Hyam is hoping to run Don’t Panic in Saturday’s William Hill Lincoln at Doncaster – providing he is satisfied with the condition of his string.

Peter Chapple-Hyam is hoping to run Don’t Panic in Saturday’s William Hill Lincoln at Doncaster – providing he is satisfied with the condition of his string.

The four-year-old progressed well towards the end of last year, posting two victories in his last three races of the campaign.

However, Don’t Panic currently sits just below the cut for the Lincoln and Chapple-Hyam harbours a few minor concerns regarding his team, although the Fath gelding pleased in a Monday workout under Alan Munro.

“A few of the horses have been coughing. I’m going to get them checked before we decide on Don’t Panic,” the Newmarket handler said.

“He has never galloped brilliantly at home but I was pleased with his work.

“But I think we need eight to come out to actually get in the field and I don’t really want to run him in the Spring Mile,” he told www.peterchapplehyam.com.

Don’t Panic is currently a best-priced 16-1 chance for the Lincoln with totesport.
