Slade powers to victory

Slade Power thrilled Eddie Lynam in winning the Weatherbys Greenlands Stakes at the Curragh.

The five-year-old was spotted cruising under Wayne Lordan with quarter of a mile to run as An Saighdiur did the hard work up front.

The 5-2 chance quickened nicely when asked and while 11-8 favourite Maarek gave chase, Lordan's mount ran out a ready two-length victor.

Lynam, who had taken Sole Power out of the Temple Stakes at Haydock due to the ground, said: "He's a very good colt, he's a bit like his trainer - he had a bit of temperament, but he's grown up better than I have. He's behaving well at the gates now.

"He's been second and third in Group Ones and I'd love to win one with him. He's a bit special as we bred him.

"I was happy with his training coming here, I just thought with 10st on the ground the horse with the run (Maarek) might be the danger, but he won doing handstands.

"He'll go for the Diamond Jubilee (at Royal Ascot) now."
