King Power Racing's Group 1 winner Winter Power (Ire) (Bungle Inthejungle {GB}) has exited her eighth-place finish in the G2 Temple S. at Haydock in good order and is still targeting the G1 King's Stand S. at Royal Ascot, according to trainer Tim Easterby. Successful in the G1 Nunthorpe S. last term, she was unplaced in both the G1 Flying Five S. at the Curragh in September and at ParisLongchamp in the Oct. 3 G1 Prix de l'Abbaye. Easterby is putting her performance down to a lack of conditioning and is confident that his filly will improve from the run.

“She's fine. She's come out of it sound and well,” said Easterby. “She just had a blow and needed the race, but she seems all right. That [King's Stand] is the idea.”
