Discourse slams Solera rivals

Discourse looks a filly with a bright future after she treated her rivals with contempt to win the german-thoroughbred.com Sweet Solera Stakes at Newmarket.

She confirmed the promise of her surprise debut success over stablemate and subsequent Cherry Hinton victor Gamilati in June with a spectacular display.

There was only one winner when Frankie Dettori brought Mahmood Al Zarooni’s charge alongside long-time leader Kinetica.

Strolling into the lead over a furlong out, the 5-2 favourite went away from the field with the minimum fuss to give Godolphin their third successive triumph in this Group Three contest.

Lily’s Angel came from off the pace to claim second place, four and a half lengths behind the winner. Kinetica was third, with the second Godolphin runner, Desert Gazelle, fourth.

Charlie Appleby, representing Godolphin, said: “She’s got a lovely attitude and today she was quite impressive.

“Frankie said she was always travelling exceptionally well and going into the dip there was only one winner.

“There are no plans, but she is entered in the Shadwell Fillies’ Mile. She knew her job first time out and she should get a mile no problem.

“Before her first run we thought she was a nice filly but since then she has improved physically. Winning this well as a two-year-old is a bonus. Hopefully, she has three-year-old written all over her.”

Paddy Power have cut Discourse to 12-1 from 20-1 for the Qipco 1000 Guineas next May, while Coral went 8-1 from 20s.
