Washington DC (3c Zoffany-How´s She Cuttin´, by Shinko Forest) looked as good as ever on Sunday when running away with the Listed Coolmore Power Stakes at Navan.
Last season’s Windsor Castle Stakes hero, bred by Paul Hyland with Chris and James McHale, could now return to Royal Ascot to contest the G1 Commonwealth Cup after winning this contest by two and a quarter lengths.
“He won well,” said Joseph O’Brien, assistant to his father Aidan. “It was a bit slow for him the last day and a few things didn’t work out – he got a bump. He has a lot of pace and was a good two-year-old. I’d say he’ll go for the G1 Commonwealth Cup.
“He’s a quick horse and fast ground is the key to him as he’s a low mover. Five or six is his trip.”
