Lynam considers Power dilemma

Eddie Lynam will leave a decision on Sole Power's participation in Saturday's Betfred Temple Stakes until as late as possible.

The Irish handler declared the seven-year-old globetrotter on Thursday morning, with the ground described as good to firm.

But with up to 20 millimetres of rain forecast, the going is likely to be a good deal softer by the weekend.

"He's travelling tonight but whether he runs or not is purely down to the ground," said Lynam.

"They were calling it good to firm on Thursday morning but the forecast is very poor.

"I think the worse ground I'd run him on would be good to soft.

"The clerk of the course did say that if they got 10mm today and that was it, it would probably go back to good by Saturday. We'll just have to see.

"I'd love to be in a position where I could make a decision now but I'm not."
