The Epsom Oaks is this season’s third Classic as the fillies battle on the first day of the Epsom Festival.

Snowfall won last year’s renewal and this year’s winner will scoop the major £311,905 prize pot on offer.

But who wins this year’s Epsom Oaks? Here’s Paddy’s favourites for the showdown for three-year-old fillies.


Emily Upjohn

John & Thady Gosden’s Emily Upjohn is the clear favourite in Paddy’s Epsom Oaks market. She bolted up in the Musidora Stakes at York in May, beating Life Of Dreams by 5 1/2 lengths. She looks the one to beat.


Emily Upjohn’s stablemate Nashwa is also near the top of the betting. She’s won both her runs this season at Haydock and Newbury. John Gosden will be hoping to land his fourth Oaks win with one of Emily Upjohn and Nashwa.

Concert Hall

Concert Hall could be Aidan O’Brien’s best hope in the Oaks this year. She beat Magical Lagoon in the Salsabil Stakes at Navan in April before finishing second behind Homeless Songs and Tuesday in the Irish 1,000 Guineas in May. She’s stepping up to 1m4f for the first time.


Aidan O’Brien also has Tuesday, who has impressed this season. She won a Fillies Maiden at Naas in March and backed that up by finishing third in the 1000 Guineas Stakes behind Cachet. Her last run was in the Irish 1,000 Guineas behind Homeless Songs at the Curragh. Her price has drifted in.

With The Moonlight

With The Moonlight is Godolphin and Charlie Appleby’s main chance and her price was slashed after she dominated in the Pretty Polly Stakes at Newmarket in May.

Tranquil Lady

Tranquil Lady was tipped as an Oaks candidate after her win in the Blue Wind Stakes at Naas in May. She beat Lily Pond by 4l that day. She also finished fourth behind Concert Hall in the Salsabil Stakes at Navan in April.

Rogue Millennium

Rogue Millennium has won both her runs this season. The first came in a Novice Stakes at Wetherby and her most recent success was in the Oaks Trial Fillies’ Stakes at Lingfield.

Thoughts Of June

Thoughts Of June‘s form has been tied in with Above The Curve this season. She was beaten by 2 3/4 lengths at Leopardstown in April before getting revenge and winning in the Cheshire Oaks at Chester in May. Above The Curve has franked the form with her win in the Coolmore Prix Saint-Alary at Longchamp at the end of May.
