Blue Bunting gets up in Irish Oaks

BLUE BUNTING led for one stride in the Irish Oaks but it was the stride that mattered as she nailed Banimpire on the line in a desperately tight finish to the Curragh Classic.

Frankie Dettori was trapped without much room inside the final furlong but his mount stayed on powerfully to catch the ultra-tough Banimpire, who would not let Laughing Lashes and Wonder Of Wonders past.

With victory, Dettori helped atone for his ride on Blue Bunting in the Investec Oaks when he was caught out by the slow pace before dropping his hands on the line to lose third place.

Dettori was not in the mood for defeat on this occasion and switched his runner to the outside. She hit top gear and got her head in front just in time.

I'd imagine that Godolphin have to be awfully pleased, and maybe even a little surprised, that Blue Bunting has won both the English 1000 Guineas and the Irish Oaks for the stable this season. The surprise being that White Moonstone was thought to be the stable's top juvenile filly in 2010, and she's yet to even see a racetrack this season.
