Savethelastdance Routs Cheshire Oaks Rivals

Aidan O’Brien trainee Savethelastdance (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}–Daddys Lil Darling, by Scat Daddy) shed maiden status with a game frontrunning display over 10 furlongs at Leopardstown last month and stormed to the head of ante-post betting lists for Epsom’s G1 Oaks after unleashing a spectacular performance in Wednesday’s Listed Weatherbys Digital Solutions Cheshire Oaks at Chester.

The 8-11 favourite’s only moment of worry came at the break, when hampered as the gates opened, and she was bustled along early to retain contact with the main cluster. Inching forward inside the last half-mile, she powered to the front rounding the home turn and surged ever clear into another county in the straight, hitting the line with a scarcely believable 22-length margin in hand on There’s The Door (Ire) (Starspangledbanner {Aus}). Ermesinde (Ire) (Golden Horn {GB}) ran on to finish 3 1/4 lengths further adrift in third. Savethelastdance’s victory was a record-breaking eighth renewal of the Robert Sangster Memorial Cup for O’Brien.
