Dancing Rain wins English Oaks fillies classic

Johnny Murtagh rode Dancing Rain to a surprise victory in the

English Oaks fillies classic on Friday.

The 20-1 shot was in control of the 1 1/2-mile race early on and

saw off Kieren Fallon on the 3-1 second-favorite Wonder Of Wonders

by three quarters of a length.

Murtagh says ”we set a nice pace but she was ducking and

diving, so I knew there was loads left in the tank.”

Izazi Top, sent off at 25-1, was third ahead of favorite Blue

Bunting, which was in the middle of the pack for much of the

race.
