Following a dominant display on Wednesday at York, EMILY UPJOHN has been hacked into the favourite for the Epsom Oaks 2022.

It was a fantastic display under the guidance of jockey Frankie Dettori, and in it, Emily Upjohn destroyed the challenge of one of the pre-race favourites.

Emily Upjohn enjoys Musidora success

Emily Upjohn always looked a threat in the field for the Musidora at York on Wednesday, going off as the 4/7 FAV after some heavy backing on the day.

After winning her debut from a 12/1 SP at Wolverhampton in November, she had warmed up nicely by taking a fillies’ novice victory at Sandown in mid-April, on her debut as a 3-year-old.

In Wednesday’s Group 3 Musidora, Dettori had to hold her back over the first half of the 1m 2f trip.

Emily Upjohn looked keen to get the job done.

Once Dettori unleashed her at the perfect time, a couple of furlongs from home, she just powered away.

The victory in the end was claimed by five and a half lengths from the 11/4 second-favourite Life Of Dreams, who had been heading up the Musidora market at one point.

The ground looked as if it caught a few off guard, cutting a little bit deeper than had been expected.

But Emily Upjohn thrived depsite the more-testing conditions at York.

Oaks stock rises

Ahead of Wednesday’s win, Emily Upjohn, trained by John and Thady Gosden, had been at 7/2 in the Epsom Oaks betting.

Things naturally took a turn though as she was backed into 6/4 on Wednesday evening* (odds recorded at Bet365 at 20:27 GMT on May 11th, 2022).

The undulating Epsom track will give her a new test, but Frankie Dettori has been highly impressed and surprised by her level of progress and power.

One of her main Oaks rivals, TUESDAY is the next one to watch as she goes in the Irish 1,000 Guineas on May 22nd at the Curragh.
