Snowfall stunned her Cazoo Oaks rivals as she triumphed by a distance in the Epsom Classic.

Snowfall stunned her Cazoo Oaks rivals as she triumphed by a distance in the Epsom Classic.

Trained by Aidan O’Brien and ridden by Frankie Dettori, Snowfall (11-2) was travelling supremely well with two furlongs to run and when her irrepressible rider gave the signal, she simply sprinted away to the line.

Mystery Angel, who was up front throughout, kept on for second, with the winner’s stablemate Divinely third.

Dettori told ITV Racing: “They went far too quick. I had the luxury to take my goggles off five (furlongs) out, because I couldn’t believe it.

“She went through like a hot knife through butter.

Asked if he had ever ridden easier Classic winner, he replied: “No – (but) I’ll take it!

“I had everything beat in front. I was afraid of Santa Barbara – (but) when I glanced, it was daylight and I thought ‘I’m going now’, and she took off.”
