Peter Robl educated the ability of lawyer for the Australia Day Cup
Coach Peter Robl believes the power of attorney has finally found its purpose as the form-strong stayer prepares to tackle the Listed Australia Day Cup (2400m) on Tuesday at Warwick Farm.
Not A Single’s son Doubt has been on Robl’s Randwick farm for a little over a year after starting out with Tony Vasil and his new trainer is starting to see the best of him.
“Since we stretched him out a little, he’s found meaning in life,” said Robl.
“After driving at Kembla Grange (last October) I told the owners that the only hope he has is to get him through a trip.
“I spoke to a girl who worked with him when he was with Tony Vasil and she said they trained him for a derby when he was there.
“When the early pressure is on he finds everything a little too heavy, but when you take him over a trip he enjoys the slower pace and relaxes more.”
Power Of Attorney falls into the distance again in the Australia Day Cup after contesting a 3,000-meter race at The Valley on January 15, in which he finished third.
The five-year-old was a winner on the Kensington circuit, who had previously started on a difficult track in a race with the hopeful Cup Skymax and the eventual city winner Harpo Marx.
“He drove consistently,” said Robl.
“I thought I was unlucky not to win the Moonee Valley the other day, but it went well.
“He’s getting a little worse at weights than he did when he met Skymax the other day, but he’s a real old bastard and we know he’ll be leading the trip.”
Robl confirmed that James Innes Jnr would likely receive the power of attorney.
Power Of Attorney is a $ 26 underdog for the Australia Day Cup with TAB.com.au.
