Richard Fahey has confirmed his impressive Greenham Stakes winner Perfect Power will head to the Qipco 2000 Guineas at Newmarket on April 30th.

A dual Group 1 winner as a juvenile over six furlongs, in a season in which he also won the Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot, he proved he stayed seven furlongs at Newbury on Saturday.

He will be stepping up to a mile in the classic, but Fahey and connections feel they have nothing to lose.

“He’s come out of Newbury remarkably well. He had a light canter this morning and just in himself, he’s bouncing. He’s tightened up,” Fahey told

“I did feel there was improvement in him going into the Greenham. The last thing I wanted to do was have him 100%. It was a trial and I used it as a trial to see if there was a possibility of having a crack at the Guineas.

“It’s just put him right. His demeanour is right, he came off the gallop having a jig-jog and a squeal which is where you want these racehorses to be. You want them to be happy and at the moment he’s in a good place.

“As a trainer, when you have a dual Group 1 winning two-year-old the question is have they trained on? That was the big question for me – is he just a wonder two-year-old or is he going to mature into a better horse and I think it was one of his best performances – if not his best – at Newbury, knowing in the back of my mind it would put him right.

“It put him spot on for the Guineas. We can keep him ticking over and one blow-out and we’re there. We’re going to have a go at the Guineas. I’ve spoken to the team, I’ve spoken to Sheikh Rashid (Dalmook al Maktoum, owner) and we’ve nothing to lose by having a go.”

He added: “He wasn’t stopping in the Greenham, he galloped all the way through the line and took some pulling up. I think he’ll be a better horse on Guineas day.

“I’m very excited about him. We know he handles the course, goes on any ground and is becoming a legend.”
