Soliloquy leaves Appleby with supplementary dilemma for Guineas

By Bruce Jackson

Soliloquy raised more questions than she answered after the Godolphin-owned three-year-old produced a solo performance to win the Group 3 Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes from the front.

That is because the Dubawi filly does not have a Qipco 1,000 Guineas ticket, although Paddy Power introduced her at 14-1 while others went 12-1 behind favourite Happily.

Soliloquy had not been learning her lines cosseted in Dubai over the winter. Instead, after the hardening from 'the beast from the east', she had blossomed on the Newmarket heath so much in recent days that trainer Charlie Appleby was expecting nothing less than what she delivered in striding clear of Altyn Orda and Eirene, who were left to scrap for second billing.

Appleby said: "We were confident coming into the race  her work recently has been nothing but impressive. The form of her Ascot race has worked out well and her form tied in with quite a few running against her today so we were confident of being bang there.

"We were always going to try to make it and keep it simple and she got a soft lead."

William Buick made the most of that and, after quickening out of the dip inside the final two furlongs, she was in splendid isolation in front  winning by a length and three-quarters come the line.

Asked about the 1,000 Guineas option, Appleby added: "She's not in either Guineas unlike Wild Illusion, who I was impressed with in her gallop before racing here.

"We'd want to keep them apart and, on her pedigree, Soliloquy would go on a quicker surface. With Wild Illusion winning her maiden on soft and then the Marcel Boussac, the ground will be an important factor and we'll sit down nearer the time to decide."

What is certain is that Godolphin are back in the thick of the Classic scene.

Where to go?

Dean Ivory, trainer of third-placed Eirene, also has such a dilemma between the cross-Channel choice.

"I think the French Guineas is where she should go  this is definitely not her ideal track as she stumbled two or three times and still came with her run.

"She's going to be a lot better for the run and is a lovely, honest and genuine filly."
