SNOWFALL (120) added another scintillating performance to her imperious three-year-old profile when winning the Group 1 Juddmonte Irish Oaks last Saturday, breaking another winning distance record for a fillies’ classic in the process.

La Joconde (90) led the field early and, although relatively ignored by the chasing pack, the gallop that Emmet McNamara set ensured the race was truly run. Willow (103) took up the baton momentarily passing the three-furlong marker before her superstar stablemate arrived on the scene to devastating effect under a motionless Ryan Moore.
