LINCOLN is a long way clear on official ratings and is difficult to oppose. Denis Hogan's charge, five times a winner for Mick Channon, has been running better than form figures imply in much stronger company and has been put in on a nice weight. T For Tango looks the main threat as he finished just in front of the selection at Naas last time though was receiving 3lb and has to concede 10lb here. Highly Approved was also behind in that Naas contest and has plenty to prove as he's never won on Turf while Earcharn is another Turf maiden who is much better at Dundalk.
