Only a course-breaking run by Bated Breath could prevent Sole Power from following up from his 2011 victory with another win last year, and he had to settle for second. But Sole Power returns to this year’s renewal as the leading favourite to claim his second win at the race, and is back into form going into the race. The six year old Eddie Lynam-trained horse won the Group Three Palace House Stakes at Newmarket earlier this month, and Lynam will be looking to continue that good form at Haydock.

Sole Power himself robbed Kingsgate Native of the opportunity of winning the race for the second time with his win in 2011. Kingsgate Native won in 2010 after returning from an unsuccessful time as a stud, and with his half a length victory proved that he would still be a force to be reckoned with, only to have to settle for second to Sole Power the following year. The Sir Michael Stoute charge hasn’t had the best of seasons thus far, but with Stoute, the leading trainer at the event with four wins, at the helm, anything is possible.
