De Sousa joins forces with Johan to pursue a reiteration of Lincoln

Silvestre De Sousa makes his return to the grand stage in Britain as Johan seeks further triumph in the William Hill Lincoln at Doncaster.

The seven-year-old, trained by Jack Channon's father Mick when he secured victory in the season-opening spectacle in 2022, will aim to replicate his success under what seems to be ideal conditions on Town Moor.

De Sousa, who rode Johan to victory in 2022, endured a challenging period in Hong Kong marked by a 10-month suspension. Now, as the three-time British champion jockey makes his comeback in the UK, he is poised for his most significant ride yet.

A complete lineup of 22 horses will make their way to the starting line for the one-mile race that marks the beginning of the Flat turf season. Johan and defending champion Migration are among the top contenders in terms of weight.
