Liber Nauticus Sinks Musidora Field
1 Liber Nauticus 4/6F
Liber Nauticus staked a claim for the Investec Oaks when she got on top close home to land the Tattersalls Musidora Stakes at York.
Moore said: "I was very happy with her because she doesn't actually do a lot. She only does enough, so I was very happy. Hopefully she'll get better as she gets older."
The winner is owned by Ballymacoll Stud, whose racing manager, Peter Reynolds, said: "It was a bit of a muddling race. It didn't really help her, but it was only her second race. She's a bit of a baby and she'll have learned a lot from today.
"Sir Michael will make a decision about Epsom. Some people might say that because she is big and strong she might be more suited to the Curragh (Irish Oaks) but we'll let Michael make that decision.
"I don't think we saw all her class today. Ryan said she was very nice but it was a muddling race and she's a filly for the future.
"Islington won this race for us (2002) and was very fancied for us but everything fell apart in the Oaks. Then she came back her to win the Yorkshire Oaks, having won Nassau Stakes, and was a Breeders' Cup mare so she might be that type, rather than Epsom. You'd have to think she has serious ability and she's done nothing wrong."
