Verdict

A wonderful race and a record 11th Group One success for GOLDIKOVA. She saw plenty of daylight for long periods but picked up well to reel-in Regal Parade and hold off the Hannon pair. She now heads to Churchill Downs in a bid for a third succes in the Breeders' Cup Mile and is clearly better than ever. It will take a good one to beat her. Paco Boy suffered a first defeat at seven furlongs but still ran a cracker on ground that probably didn't play to his strengths while stablemate Paco Boy found plenty for pressure having not travelled as smoothly as the front two. Regal Parade confirmed he belongs at the top table when there's give in the ground and he'll win another big prize when the mud is flying. Joanna travelled noticeably well and despite being by High Chaparral, she could be worth another try at sprint distances.
