Owner Sabena Power and trainer Eddie Lynam completed the remarkable feat of winning both of Royal Ascot’s Group One sprints with two different horses. Sole Power had quickly been ruled out of the Diamond Jubilee Stakes as he was tired from his success in Tuesday’s King’s Stand, but the two years younger, but unrelated, Slade Power was more than ready to step into his shoes. The only difference was it was Wayne Lordan in the saddle rather than Richard Hughes, and the 7-2 favourite was ridden more prominently and to less dramatic effect than the fast-finishing Sole Power, but it was the same outcome as he strongly repelled Due Diligence and obliged by a length and a half. Press Association As Sole Power is the five-furlong specialist and Slade Power has his first top-level victory at six, it would appear easy for Lynam to keep them apart, but they will meet once again in next month’s Darley July Cup at Newmarket. The junior member took third and the old man fifth in last season’s renewal. It prompted joyous celebrations for Irish bookmaking family the Powers, with this ranking as a similar achievement to that of the Australian Choisir, who collected both races in 2003, a year after the Diamond Jubilee had been promoted to a Group One. The family have just a handful horses at Lynam’s County Meath stable, while the trainer had also won Wednesday’s Queen Mary Stakes with Anthem Alexander. “This one’s very special as we bred him,” said Lynam. “They’re special owners, and I’m lucky to have special staff, special horses and a great family to back me up. It’s just a coincidence, I’ve got two very good horses and they’ll both run in the July Cup. Sole Power will wear the first colours as he’s the elder statesman and the stable pet. “Trainers get 10 per cent (of prize-money) for a reason – it’s only 10 per cent to do with us. It’s been a great week and there is nowhere I like winning more than here. I love the place.” Power’s son, Paddy, added: “This is the family week of all time. Two Royal Ascot winners – it just doesn’t happen. We were quite confident he’d come on from his first run at the Curragh. It’s very special.” They had to wait to celebrate as a stewards’ inquiry was called, but the result was quickly confirmed. Lordan, who got a one-day careless riding ban, said: “He travelled real well, I got there a little bit soon and he rolled around with me, but I had plenty left and I’m delighted. It feels great. We don’t come across these horses too often that can come and compete, and when they win it’s even better.”
The Hammers boss was left irked by referee Neil Swarbrick during Sunday’s 2-1 Barclays Premier League defeat to Arsenal at Upton Park after the Gunners were awarded a penalty and the hosts were denied a late spot-kick. Winston Reid was adjudged to have felled Santi Cazorla in the box, with Swarbrick pointing to the spot as the Spaniard went to ground under the challenge, but – with West Ham chasing a stoppage-time equaliser – Morgan Amalfitano decided to stay on his feet when challenged by Kieran Gibbs. West Ham welcome managerless West Brom to Upton Park on New Year’s Day looking to halt a run of two defeats over the festive period, albeit to Chelsea and Arsenal, with Allardyce having an almost-full squad to select from for the visit of the Baggies. James Tomkins is suspended and Mauro Zarate will play no part as a loan move across London to QPR edges closer. Fellow summer recruit Enner Valencia is likely to be involved. Meanwhile, James Morrison insists there is nowhere for the West Brom players to hide as he bids to impress Tony Pulis. Former Stoke and Crystal Palace manager Pulis will watch from the stands when the Baggies go to Upton Park and is expected to be confirmed as their new head coach before the weekend. Press Association Sport understands he will sign a two-and-half-year deal to replace the sacked Alan Irvine. Pulis will be Albion’s fourth head coach in just over a year and Morrison knows places are not guaranteed. “You’ve got to impress the new head coach to get in the team,” he told the club’s official site. “We’ve got a big squad here, a lot of new players came in at the start of the season who are champing at the bit to play. “So you’ve got to be on top of your game to get in the side. “Rob (Kelly, assistant head coach) is a good guy. Keith (Downing) and Deano (Dean Kiely) are also there who have been here for a number of years and have a good bond with the players. “So everyone is pulling in the right direction and in the right frame of mind. “It’s a fresh start. We’ve got to be putting in 100 per cent and getting a win for the fans, who deserve more.” The Baggies are 16th in the Barclays Premier League, a point above the drop zone, after seven defeats in their last nine games. Press Association With both Chelsea and Sunderland profiting from controversial penalty decisions against the Hammers in recent weeks, Allardyce believes going to ground when caught by the opposition may be the only way to bring a foul to the attention of the officials. “As long as it’s not simulation – as long as you get the right decision from it,” he said when asked if a player needed to fall over to get a foul. “If you’re not touched and you go down because you’re not touched, that’s not the way forward. But if you can’t get what you ordinarily should get, then you’ve got to consider the fact that if you make a meal of it, you make a meal of it because the contact is sufficient enough. “The contact on Amalfitano was sufficient enough to put him off getting the ball cleanly in that position to try to help us score a goal. It impeded him from getting a better contact on the ball. “Like I said, that’s where a penalty should be given and if that’s the case then it would be much better across the board. “As difficult as it is for referees, those are the decisions that they should be capable of giving. All the other infringements are here and there, if you like, but then when it comes to major decisions, it’s how the goal is judged and how the referee is judged. “A very good game from a referee can’t evolve being 99 per cent great and then the one per cent being one major decision he’s got wrong, because then he’s had a bad game – like a goalkeeper can be brilliant and then all of a sudden he drops one ball and it gets put in the net and he’s had it. “Unfortunately the referees are not brave enough to give those penalties because, in the surroundings and the atmosphere in the stadiums, it doesn’t look like one, but their job is to identify if it is or not.” Sam Allardyce would not prevent his players from “making a meal” out of contact if it meant his West Ham side were given the decisions they deserved.
