Bracelet glitters in Irish Oaks

Bracelet

Bracelet gave trainer Aidan O'Brien a fourth victory in the Darley Irish Oaks at the Curragh with a determined effort in the hands of Colm O'Donoghue.

Despite winning the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot last month, Bracelet was a 10-1 shot stepped up to Group One level.

Luca Cumani's British raider Volume took the field along for much of the mile and a half contest, but the pack had closed up by the home turn. Bracelet and stable companion Tapestry came to make it a three-way fight inside the final furlong and it was Bracelet who got the better of her stable companion by a neck to lead home an O'Brien one-two. Volume was third.
