Seventh Heaven wins Irish Oaks

Seventh Heaven gave trainer Aidan O'Brien a fifth Irish Oaks career win at the Curragh on Saturday.

Seamie Heffernan led the three-year-old to a first major success by beating Architecture, ridden by Frankie Dettori for Hugo Palmer, into second with Mick Channon's Harlequeen third.

The daughter of Galileo, who disappointed in the Investec Oaks at Epsom, finished well ahead of stablemate and odds-on favourite Even Song, with Ryan Moore easing off the Ribblesdale winner after she failed to challenge in the home straight.

"It was a Group One and we went at a Group One pace," Heffernan told At The Races.

"I was always travelling great, but if you'd given me the choice before the race I'd have given back half the prize money to ride Even Song. That's the way it can be with fillies though. Sometimes they just don't turn up."

O'Brien says Even Song struggled to match the intensity of her Ribblesdale success at Ascot in June.

"I had to train her hard for Ascot and sometimes when you have to train them hard, they just don't quite fire the second time. Ryan said she was slowly away and just never travelled, but she's a good filly and she'll be back," he said.
