Freddie's Flying Filly Has the Gold Standard; Head Hopes for History in Deauville


Byline: Horse Power

IF quantity is the name of racing's game today, the onus will most definitely be on quality when attention switches to the coast of northern France tomorrow.

Trainer Richard Hannon and jockey Richard Hughes both felt that had Paco Boy been able to start his challenge a fraction earlier, he might well have pegged back Goldikova on that occasion and the distance between the two at the line - a diminishing neck - adds credence to their argument.

Goldikova, however, gave the impression she always had matters in hand and was merely idling in the last furlong; her pilot Oliver Peslier kicked for home sooner than many expected and that move proved decisive.

Hughes and Hannon, inevitably, will want Paco Boy to sit a little closer to Goldikova than he did at Ascot but it is debatable as to whether their tactics will change the outcome; Goldikova, after all, is becoming a phenomenon.

Twice a winner of the Breeders Cup Mile, she has 100 per cent record this term - victories in the Prix d'Isphan and Prix Rothschild sandwiched the Queen Anne - and trainer Freddie Head will leave no stone unturned as Goldikova aims shine again. …
