King's Lynn lands the big sales race at Doncaster

A review of the rest of the action from Thursday's meeting at Doncaster where King's Lynn struck for the Queen.

Royal winner of Sales prize

King's Lynn carried the colours of the Queen to victory in the Weatherbys Racing Bank £300,000 2-Y-O Stakes at Doncaster.

A promising second on debut at Windsor, the Andrew Balding-trained youngster took a huge step forward to land this valuable contest in the hands of champion jockey-elect Oisin Murphy.

As ever the race was ultra-competitive, and King's Lynn was the least experienced runner in the 20-strong field.

The Cable Bay colt burst clear on entering the final furlong and while several mounted a late challenge from out of the pack, King's Lynn (12-1) had half a length in hand over Repartee at the line, with Toro Strike third.

Murphy said: "I was thrilled. He obviously has a big heart. We trained his mother Kinematic, she was also quite small and he's a good advertisement for his sire (Cable Bay). He's absolutely flying. I suppose Andrew, John Warren and Her Majesty will speak, but I think six furlongs is probably OK for him. I imagine he'll sharpen up. Let's see how he develops."
