Older Comments about the 2011 Yorkshire Oaks (G1)...

For those who never read England's RacingPost.com web-site, but might still have an interest in Thursday's G1 Yorkshire Oaks at York, trainer Ed Dunlop withdrew the favorite, Snow Fairy, today. Saying he didn't like how the ground is at York. Doesn't think it will suite Snow Fairy. That now leaves the race wide open for a trio of talented 3yr.old fillies to fight out the Yorkshire Oaks, IMO. You have English 1000 Guineas and Irish Oaks winner, Blue Bunting. Royal Whip Stakes winner, and Irish Oaks 2nd, Banimpire. And Epsom Oaks 2nd, Irish Oaks 3rd, and Cheshire Oaks winner, Wonder of Wonders. Crystal Capella and Vita Nova look best of the older fillies and mares left in the race. Even though Blue Bunting won the Irish Oaks. She mugged Banimpire right on the wire to do it, and Banimpire has been in top form all season. I forgot to mention, Banimpire also won the Windsor Forest Stakes during the Ascot meet. She's my pick in the Yorkshire Oaks with Snow Fairy out.
