Kachy will face seven rivals as he bids to win the Betway Cleves Stakes for the third successive year at Lingfield on Saturday.

Tom Dascombe’s speedster will break from stall seven in the six-furlong dash having defied stalls 11 and eight in the last two years.

The seven-year-old is approaching the final furlong of his career with a future at stud beckoning.

Owner Dave Lowe said: “People have suggested we should send him abroad and that sort of thing, but we absolutely love him to bits and the endgame for us is to breed from him. He won’t be sold to anyone.

“Finals Day has always been touted as his swansong before his retirement. He has been the horse of a lifetime for me. I speak to Michael Owen when I go up to Tom’s and he says he felt the same thing with Brown Panther.

“I will probably never have another one like Kachy and it has been a privilege to have him.

“Hopefully, he can go out on a high by winning the Cleves for a third time and then going on to Finals Day.”

On official ratings he faces his biggest challenge from the Owen Burrows-trained Habub.

Good Effort and Merhoob are recent winners who will take their chance with the progressive Tinto, the consistent Royal Birth, Soldier’s Minute and Lady Dancealot also running.

On the same card is the Betway Winter Derby Trial, in which Andrew Balding’s Bangkok makes his all-weather debut.

He faces six rivals including the John Gosden-trained Court House, who finished second to Wissahickon in the Winter Derby last year.

Jane Chapple-Hyam’s pair of Dalgarno and Extrodinair, the Roger Charlton-trained Extra Elusive, Master The World from David Elsworth’s yard and Stuart Williams’ Pactolus complete the field.
