Verdict

Feline Groovy made a very promising debut at Newmarket but didn't appear to act on softer ground at Haydock She could bounce back here though her stable companion Klassique cost 300,000gns, which is hardly surprising as she's by Galileo out of a Group 1 winner. Solar Gold has done nothing wrong here and at Windsor where she's come up against some promising types but SOLAR ECHO, a daughter of Galileo, was only three lengths behind at Windsor and, as that was her debut and she was staying on, she looks to have every chance of reversing the form and is handed the vote. Mojika attracted support on her Haydock debut and, though she didn't show much, connections must have expected better.
