Rain would suit Head for Solow


Solow enjoyed a tremendous start to the year with victories in the Dubai Turf at Meydan and the Prix d’Ispahan at Longchamp and completed a Group One hat-trick in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot last week.

The four-year-old is set to return to Britain for what could be his biggest test yet on July 29, with Aidan O’Brien’s dual Guineas hero and St James’s Palace Stakes scorer Gleneagles lying in wait.”He is very well, he took the race well and I’m very happy with him,” said Head.

“That (Goodwood) is the plan if all goes well and I hope we get a little rain.”Head is relishing what promises to be a mouthwatering clash of the generations and wonders whether a tough first half to Gleneagles’ Classic year could catch up with him.

He said: “It’s going to be an interesting race, I think. Gleneagles has had a tough spring, he has two Guineas and a St James’s Palace in his legs, so we’ll see.
