The Ballydoyle filly is the odds-on favourite with Paddy Power after a record-breaking 16-length victory in last month’s Epsom Oaks.
We’ve got the ultimate runner-by-runner guide to the Irish Oaks 2021 so you’ve come to the right place to swot up on the race.
Trainer: Aidan O’Brien Jockey: Ryan Moore
Massive improver for a step up to middle-distances, winning the Oaks at Epsom (soft) by a remarkable 16 lengths. Likely to face a quicker surface now but still can’t be opposed.
Trainer: Donnacha Aidan O’Brien Jockey: G. M. Ryan
Made winning debut at Leopardstown at 2 and has taken her form to new level this year, 2½ lengths third of 13 to Loving Dream in Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot (1½m) last month. Dam won this race.
Trainer: Aidan O’Brien Jockey: W. M. Lordan
Course Group 3 winner at 2. Good 2¾ lengths fourth (Nicest narrowly ahead in third) to Loving Dream in Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot but she was well behind Snowfall when third in Oaks prior to that.
Trainer: Aidan O’Brien Jockey: Seamie Heffernan
Useful filly. Well-beaten last of 14 behind Snowfall in Oaks but bounced back with a 1¼m Naas listed win 24 days ago. Place claims.
Trainer: G. M. Lyons Jockey: C. T. Keane
Debut winner. Better form in defeat since at listed level since but she was 6 lengths behind Willow when sixth at Naas latest. Can’t make a case for.
Trainer: Aidan O’Brien Jockey: Emmet McNamara
Fairly useful filly. Didn’t need to be at best when winning 7-runner maiden (30/100) at Roscommon (10.2f, good to soft) 18 days ago, digging deep. Hard to see her being good enough here.
Trainer: Joseph Patrick O’Brien Jockey: S. M. Crosse
Off the mark at Gowran in June. 12/1, 4¾ lengths fifth of 10 to Willow in listed race at Naas (10f, good) 24 days ago. Open to further progress after only 3 starts.
Trainer: J. A. Stack Jockey: C. D. Hayes
Remains a maiden after 7 starts and surely out of her depth here.
