Wissahickon will face just six rivals when he bids to take his winning streak to five in the Betway Winter Derby at Lingfield on Saturday.

After a smooth success at Chelmsford in August, John Gosden’s talented four-year-old took the Cambridgeshire at Newmarket on the turf in September and has since brushed aside the opposition in two Listed races over this course and distance.

The Mick Appleby-trained Big Country has finished second both times at Lingfield and tries again as do Wissahickon’s stablemate Court House and the Charlie Fellowes-trained Chiefofchiefs, who were third and fourth in the Winter Derby Trial three weeks ago.

David Elsworth’s Master The World goes for back-to-back victories in this race after being awarded the prize in the stewards’ room 12 months ago after going down by a head to Mr Owen.

Jamie Osborne’s Hathal and Pactolus from Stuart Williams’ stable complete the line-up.

Aidan O’Brien’s Hunting Horn was a withdrawal at the 48-hour final declaration stage along with Breden, Goring and Matterhorn.
