Sole Power tackles top sprinters
27 Mar 2015 18:06
Sole Power will tread a familiar path as he tries to make it fourth-time lucky in the Al Quoz Sprint at Meydan on Saturday.
-
Eddie Lynam's charge posted his best effort in the five-furlong heat when a length-and-a-half second to Ortensia back in 2012 before going on to finish fourth and seventh in the two subsequent renewals.
-
The eight-year-old won the King's Stand at Ascot and the Nunthorpe at York last term, but failed to take a hand in the finish in his three starts at the end of the campaign before posting a disappointing effort when down the field in the Meydan Sprint earlier this month.
-
Lynam told At The Races: "He's training well and we're very happy with him. He ran on 'Super Saturday' and was a little bit disappointing. Hopefully he'll put that run behind him and bring his best form to the race.
-
"His best run in the race was three years ago when he was second behind Ortensia. He ran a good race when he was fourth and last year draw-wise he probably saw a bit more daylight.
-
"He seems to have taken a little bit longer to come to hand as he's got older and we're just hoping he reproduces his best on the day.
-
"He's won nearly €2million in prize-money - he's a been a lifetime horse and we're very fond of him.
-
"Let's hope we've got another year of him performing at his best."
