Even Song heads Oaks field


Aidan O'Brien's Ribblesdale Stakes winner Even Song heads the field for Saturday's Darley Irish Oaks at The Curragh.

O'Brien is bidding for a fifth win in the Curragh Classic and the Ballydoyle handler has a strong hand in this year's race with his quartet headed by the Royal Ascot winner.

As well as Even Song, O'Brien will saddle Epsom Oaks fourth and sixth Somehow and Seventh Heaven and the Munster Oaks winner Pretty Perfect.

Ajman Princess was supplement for the race earlier this week and she has stood her ground for trainer Roger Varian, while Hugo Palmer's Architecture, who was also added to the field at a cost of €40,000, will take her place alongside stable companion We Are Ninety.

Mick Channon's Harlequeen completes the British-trained contingent.

Meanwhile, Joseph O'Brien will saddle his first runner in the Classic in the shape of Way To My Heart alongside the John Oxx-trained Red Stars. Jim Bolger's Turret Rocks and An Cailin Orga complete the field.
