Racing: Pivotal role for Hinge

Click to follow
MARY HINGE and Tabook head the ante-post market for the William Hill Trophy which forms the centrepiece of the 24th Timeform Charity Day at York on Saturday.

The two sprinters are joined by another 23 entries in what looks a good quality field for the six-furlong handicap.

A short-head winner of her last two starts, Mary Hinge is the 11-2 favourite with the sponsors, with Tabook at 7-1. Ladbrokes have the pair sharing favouritism at 7-1.

Confirming Mary Hinge an intended runner at York, a spokeswoman for Julie Cecil's Newmarket stable said: 'Mary Hinge is very well and has come out of her last race, at Haydock, in good form. She will run at York, all being well, and Paul Eddery will ride.'

Henry Cecil confirmed yesterday that his Epsom Derby runner-up, King's Theatre, will go to The Curragh for the Irish Derby on Sunday, 26 June, 'as long as the ground is good'.
