21 Aug 2014: Sole Power May Not Be at Peak for Nunthorpe Stakes

Eddie Lynam has stated he doesn’t feel Sole Power is at his peak form ahead of the Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes on Friday.

The seven year old, who was one of 15 remaining runners after declarations were made on Wednesday, is the 3-1 favourite at Titan Bet (Free £35) for the Group 1 race at York, which he won four years ago.

Still, he has been a no-show on the track since his stunning King’s Stand victory at Royal Ascot back in June, and has suffered interruptions to his Nunthorpe preparations.

“Since being forced to miss the July Cup because of the soft ground he has had a bad skin infection, like ring worm or dermatitis, which forced him to miss ten days of training,” said Lynam.

“We had to have his rugs off the whole time, which was not ideal, but it is better that it happened in the summer, when it is warmer, and he has been back in full training for two weeks and worked well on Tuesday morning.

“My gut feeling is that he may not be quite in the same form as he was before Royal Ascot, but he is coming back to himself day by day so we will take him to York hopeful rather than confident.

“This will be the fourth time that he has run in the Nunthorpe. He is about 45 kilos heavier now than when he won it in 2010 so he has developed a lot and got a lot stronger.

“I keep expecting him to show signs of old age but that has yet to materialise – I would even say that his most impressive race ever was his last [at Royal Ascot]. Like a good wine he seems to get better with age and hopefully that can carry on a bit longer.

“With a come-from-behind horse like him the leaders don’t tend to come back to you in the Nunthorpe, unlike at Ascot. But he has won the race before and is one horse that no one else should take for granted.

“If the ground came up soft we would have to consider withdrawing him, but if it was good to soft we would probably take a chance with him.”

Sole Power s is followed in the betting by Take Cover (6-1), Cougar Mountain, Hot Streak, Shea Shea (7-1), Extortionist, Moviesta, Pearl Secret (14-1), G Force, Rangali (16-1), Stepper Point, Steps (20-1), Astaire (33-1), Monsieur Joe (50-1), and Borderlscott (100-1).
