The Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned Mutamaasik has this afternoon been scratched from the Lincoln handicap at Doncaster on March 28th.

The four-year-old - who is on a five-timer when he does next line up - is sound and healthy and in a good place for the upcoming season, however he has not proven himself to be forward enough in his home work for the Doncaster feature to be on the agenda. There are a number of major handicap prizes he is likely to be targeted at in the coming months, including potentially the Victoria Cup over 7f & the Royal Hunt Cup over 8f at Royal Ascot.

He remains an exciting prospect for the season ahead.
