Snow Fairy, runner-up behind Midday last year, is the 10-3 favourite with Coral for Thursday’s Darley Yorkshire Oaks, following the final declarations for the Group One highlight. Blue Bunting and Crystal Capella are both 7-2, ahead of Vita Nova at 6-1.
“In what continues to be a vintage flat season, the Yorkshire Oaks promises to be an absolute cracker, with a host of top class fillies lining up. With last year’s winner, Midday, taking on the colts in the Juddmonte International, we narrowly favour Snow Fairy, second behind Henry Cecil’s charge in the Nassau last month as well as this race twelve months ago, as the one to beat,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
