Soliloquy won the Nell Gwyn Stakes, the feature race on day two of the Craven meeting at Newmarket.

The 4-1 shot, ridden by William Buick for trainer Charlie Appleby, beat Altyn Orda by one and three-quarter lengths.

Owned by Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin operation, the filly is to be aimed at the Newmarket or French stagings of the 1,000 Guineas in May.

But she would need to be added as a late entry to the Newmarket field at a cost of £30,000.

The Richard Hannon-trained Anna Nerium is set to take up her entry in the Newmarket 1,000 Guineas after a gritty success under jockey Tom Marquand in the European Free Handicap.
