Just eight horses were withdrawn at yesterday's declaration stage for the Lincoln Handicap at Doncaster on Saturday, leaving the likelihood of large-scale disappointment for those wanting to run.

A total of 63 horses remain in the race, but the safety limit is 24. Those unable to get a run are eligible for the consolation Spring Mile on Friday.

Kayvee was the only surprise withdrawal. The Tote Festival Handicap runner- up had been quoted at 25-1 for the first big contest of the Flat season.

The market leaders, Alamein and New Century, are guaranteed a run, but the 1993 winner, High Premium, needs two horses to be withdrawn to gain a place in the line-up.

n Mary Reveley and the conditional rider Gary Cahill had their punishments for breaking the non-triers' rule at Sedgefield last Tuesday with Supreme Target reduced by the Jockey Club's disciplinary committee yesterday. Reveley's fine was cut from pounds 1,000 to pounds 600, and Cahill's ban reduced from seven days to five days.
