Found the winning formula for success in Yorkshire Oaks

By Anita Chambers

Found should emerge as the best of Aidan O'Brien's four runners in the Darley Yorkshire Oaks, the main event on day two of the Ebor meeting at York.

In Found you have an older filly who has proved her mettle in the toughest company more than once and could finally have been found the winning opportunity she needs tomorrow.

The daughter of Galileo beat the great Golden Horn to win the Breeders' Cup Turf last October but counts just one win to her credit in five outings this term.

After appearing to need the run on her Listed return, Found then stepped up to win a Curragh Group Three but come the big day in the Tattersalls Gold Cup in May, she found Fascinating Rock far too good.

Postponed then held her off with the minimum of fuss in the Coronation Cup before My Dream Boat just outbattled her to win by a neck in the Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot.

A return to distaff company combined with a switch back up to 12 furlongs should see Found back on the winning trail.
