Roger Varian's Kitsune Power lives up to the billing with comfortable Silver Cup win at Beverley

Kitsune Power’s progressive season continued when he claimed a third win of the term in the William Hill Silver Cup at Beverley.

The Roger Varian-trained gelding was last seen at Glorious Goodwood, coming home a length and a quarter behind Ajero in the Federation Of Bloodstock Agents Handicap. 

This time he was a comfortable winner when starting as the 15-8 favourite under Kevin Stott, prevailing by two lengths after travelling quietly at the back of the field and pouncing in the final furlong.

"We travelled really well round there and got a nice lead, we didn't go as quick as I thought we were going to and it kind of turned into a sprint, but the further he went, the better," said Stott.

"I'd say he'll easily get a mile and a half in time, I'm delighted he won as he was knocking on the door.

"I don't think he's stopping just now, when he gets to a mile and half I think he could be even better."
