The flat is back with Doncaster's Lincoln meeting showing off the first turf flat racing of the season and we have come up with a nice priced ante-post bet for you.

The second race of the day at Town Moor is the Listed Mile Stakes and a nice price of 5/1 we think that Top Rank for trainer James Tate could run a big race.

The five year old really hit the ground running last term and looked to be a highly progressive colt having won on his seasonal debut at Thirsk after almost a year off and then backing that up with a narrow third at York in a hot handicap that has seen he form franked since.

He then showed exactly how good he can be over a mile, taking the Group Three Superior Mile Stakes at Haydock and from there Tate was always stepping him up in class again.

Tate had his eyes set on the QEII at Ascot as the big target end of season target but after finishing a poor sixth in the Joel Stakes in September, he was then put away for the season.

He returns a year older but still very unexposed for his age and if fit and ready for his first event looks to be a big price at 5/1.

Has winning form on both good and soft ground.
