Darley Yorkshire Oaks (Group 1)

FEATURE of the day on Thursday was the Group 1 Yorkshire Oaks, and all seven declared runners stood their ground despite the quickening conditions. When Snowfall (Aidan O’Brien/Ryan Moore) landed the Musidora Stakes here in May, she was allowed to start a 14/1 shot, and the reaction from many professionals myself included – was that she stole the race from the front, using her experience against fillies who were less professional.
