Traders' Tip

2:40 Newmarket: Sole Power

A proven top-drawer performer, Sole Power drops in class for this five-furlong sprint. The admirable campaigner ran two very decent races over in Dubai, beaten no more than two and a half lengths on either occasion. He is proven on the good to firm going and has the expertise of Ryan Moore to guide him home. Having won this contest last year, he looks a great bet this afternoon. In fact, we're thinking of bankering him in the office Scoop6 perm!
