Sole Power: Needs to run

Sole Power: Needs to run

Sole Power goes for the Market Slide Flying Five Stakes at the Curragh on Sunday having been a late withdrawal from last week's Nunthorpe Stakes because of the ground.

Trainer Eddie Lynam pulled his star sprinter out of the York feature as he was not happy with the going there even though he was the defending champion.

With conditions suitable in County Kildare, Lynam is happy to run the four-year-old, who has to give weight all round.

And the County Meath handler is keen to get Sole Power back on the track as he intends to go for the Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock next Saturday.

"He seems in good form and the ground should be right, so we're going to run him," said Lynam.

"He has been unlucky with the ground but he's ready to go.

"He'll go to Haydock next week as well if the ground is right.

"He's very fresh, he needs to run."

Not Loving The Rain

Amour Propre crosses the Irish Sea from Henry Candy's Kingston Warren stable having finished second to Masamah in both his starts this year.

"We had thought about going to Beverley but we've decided to go to Ireland with him," said Candy.

"He's in good order, but we wouldn't want any rain at the Curragh.

"He couldn't have done much more this season and we are very happy with him."

Move In Time is the only other British challenger in a field of nine and he ran a fine race when runner-up to Inxile at Tipperary on his latest start.

"Move In Time is a smashing horse and whatever he does for the rest of this year, he'll be even better next season," said the three-year-old's trainer Bryan Smart.

"He ran well in Ireland last time when he was second to Inxile and he wasn't far behind Margot Did (subsequent Nunthorpe Stakes winner) at Sandown."

Ash In Hot Race

Like Sole Power, Invincible Ash has been switched to run nearer home after being taken out of the Nunthorpe due to the ground conditions on the Knavesmire.

"We took her to York, but we didn't run her because of the ground," said her trainer Michael Halford.

"She's in good form and as long as the ground doesn't deteriorate, she'll take her chance.

"I'll be disappointed if the ground does get worse. There are showers forecast but it's good ground. As long as it stays that way she'll run.

"She's run well there in the past and likes it there. It looks a hot race, but we're hoping for a good run."
