I was concerned that Fran Berry had the leg up on Sole Power, but decided not to worry. He gave it an awful ride! Hitting the front 2 furlongs out when the horse needs to be delivered late so by the time it got to the furlong it's run had flattened out. Think the lower TS bears this out, sure they're not machines but IMO he got it all wrong & must remember that this horse needs Murtagh!Not just pocket talk, genuine opinion!
Think a major problem arose when they split into two groups and Sole Power was not with the group that could have given him cover for longer and deleivered later, as a result Berry probably had no option but to go when he did and as you say he flattened out and he made a wrong call in deciding who to follow. I also gave thought to whether some of the other Jocks may have have planned to split deliberately in order to get the fav beat.
