Ryan Moore notches up his eight winner from his last 14 rides as Snowfall dominates from the outset to take out the feature Group 3 for Aidan O'Brien.

Taking the lead from the stalls, the Deep Impact filly was never passed as she gradually eased away from the field of seven.

Starting at 14-1, Snowfall was under no pressure as runner-up Noon Star (11-10 favourite) and third-placed Teona – who was very keen through the early stages – unsuccessfully tried to mount late challenges.

Bookmaker response was immediate, with Snowfall’s odds slashed for the Cazoo Oaks.

O’Brien said: “We always thought the world of her last year, but things just didn’t work for her.

“On pedigree she was always going to be suited by a step up in trip, Ryan gave her a lovely ride.

“It’s a beautiful pedigree and we always thought a race like that would suit.

“I would think the Oaks will be the plan, but we’ll all have a chat.

“Things just didn’t work out for her last season, hopefully she goes on and has a good year.”
