Verdict

GOLDIKOVA flopped on heavy ground at Longchamp in the spring but regained the winning thread in good style. Olivier Peslier sensibly sat her close to a sedate early pace set by Spacious and once given the office, she quickened smartly to take the lead inside the final two furlongs. Freddie Head's starlet was challenged right the way to the line but she kept pulling out a little more to win tidily. Spacious tried to repeat the tactics she used to great success in the Windsor Forest Stakes at Royal Ascot but was up against a tip-top performer here and had to give best. She lost second late in the day to Heaven Sent, who ran on from the midfield inside the distance. The highly-touted Rainbow View still can't add to the winning tally from her juvenile days and punters continue to get their fingers burnt. Trainer John Gosden was not too disheartened afterwards as she was beaten by some pretty battle hardened performers. A try over 10 furlongs could be next in the Nassau Stakes and it will be a surprise if she doesn't take a prize at some stage this season. It was six lengths and upwards back to the remainder who were outclassed.
