JOHN and Thady Gosden got off to the perfect start as a training duo yesterday when their first runner under a new joint licence, Regent, went in at Lingfield and the father-and-son partnership will be hopeful of big race success today in the Unibet Lincoln at Doncaster (3:10).

Haqeeqy is the most significant of seven runners for the Gosdens today (runners in Meydan still registered under John Gosden solely) and intriguingly will be ridden by exciting apprentice Benoit de la Sayette, who only had his first winner in December.
