Solar Power Is One For Notebook

How the handicappers saw the weekend features

The Brett Crawford-trained Solar Power had his rating raised from 92 to 98 following his success in the World Sports Betting Gr3 Pocket Powers Stakes run over 1950m on a heavy Hollywoodbets Kenilworth track on 24 June 2023.

The Handicappers felt that the consistent Top Quality made for the most suitable line horse here, and his rating remains on 95.

In rating the race this way Solar Power actually runs to a rating of 105. However, the specific race conditions do not allow for more than a 6 points adjustment for the winner and placed horses.

Second placed The Futurist, who achieved a rating of 104 was only raised by 2 pounds from 95 to 97. This ensures that he would meet the winner on correct handicap terms in a Handicap race.

The following horses received drops in ratings: Master Redoute dropped from 105 to 102, Chewbaca dropped from 91 to 89 and Silver Host from 112 to 111.
