Power back on track

Eddie Lynam reports Slade Power to be back in full training as the top sprinter prepares to end his racing career in Australia.

The five-year-old suffered a bout of ringworm which prevented him going for the Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock and attempting a major treble after his wins in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes and July Cup this summer.

However, he is fine again now and is being aimed at the VRC Sprint Classic, the penultimate leg of the Global Sprint Challenge, at Flemington on November 8 before being retired and taking up stallion duties.

"He's in good form. He's back in full work and he'll be going into quarantine in a few weeks with a view to sending him to Australia at the beginning of October," said Lynam.
