Marco Botti sweet on Solera success with Capla Temptress

Tue 8 Aug 2017

Capla Temptress will put her unbeaten record on the line in the Sweet Solera Stakes at Newmarket on Saturday.

The daughter of Lope De Vega was a 20-1 winner on her racecourse debut at Chelmsford in June, but proved that victory was no fluke with a dominant display over this course and distance three weeks ago.

With conditions likely to be in her favour, trainer Marco Botti is excited to see how his youngster performs at Group Three level.

"I always thought she was a nice filly, but when she went to Chelmsford I thought maybe she could need the race for experience," said the Newmarket-based Italian.

"I wasn't surprised she won, but you never really know what to expect first time and she obviously came on from that to Newmarket.

"It probably wasn't the strongest race the other day, but the manner she did it in was impressive. She won quite cosily in the end.

"I hope she's come on again. This is a step up in class, but she's entitled to to be there.

"Being by Lope De Vega, she handles cut in the ground better than others, but I don't think she's ground dependant."
