Palace aim for Power

Sole Power is likely to aim to follow up his win in last year's Palace House Stakes at Newmarket.

Eddie Lynam's globetrotting sprinter was done no favours by the draw in the Al Quoz Sprint at Meydan on World Cup night.

He was beaten two and a half lengths by the electrifying Amber Sky with his old nemesis She Shea just behind the winner, but both of those were drawn high with Sole Power breaking from stall two.

"We will more than likely go to Newmarket for the Palace House in which he recorded the fastest time since Lochsong last year," said part-owner Sabena Power's son, Paddy.

"After that it will be on to Royal Ascot, I'd imagine. The mid-summer sprints then pick themselves.

"As for last weekend, the draw didn't really help. He travelled sweetly but probably saw more daylight than is ideal for him.

"He finished two lengths behind Shea Shea so it wasn't too bad a run in hindsight given how good we know Shea Shea is at Meydan."
