CHAIRMAN Power cost over half a million guineas as a yearling, so is bred to go a bit, and he was seen in a much better light stepped up to a mile and a half. The trip was more in line with his pedigree on his return from 11 months off at Lingfield earlier this month.
That was his first run since undergoing a breathing operation, and the betting suggested he would come on a fair bit for the run.
The sharp nature of Lingfield probably didn’t suit him, and the surface is only starting to be scratched in regards to the ability he possesses.
FLORENCE STREET finished nearer last than first on her debut at Salisbury 12 days ago, but she shaped much better than the bare result suggested and is expected to improve significantly now.
That race looked above-average – one of the most valuable maidens in the calendar – and the manner in which Florence Street travelled suggests she possesses a fair bit of ability.
She left the impression she would come on a fair bit fitness wise and she is of big interest now.
CASHEL is on a lengthy losing run, and admittedly isn’t the easiest to predict, but he is much better than this level at his best.
Cashel has now fallen 7lb below his last winning mark, and though he ran one of his lesser races at Yarmouth last time, he is a better performer on the all-weather.
The booking of Oisin Murphy catches the eye and a big run is expected.
