Mark Wallis ticked off one of the few remaining Category One prizes that had eluded him on Wednesday after Cashen Maureen handed him a first ever Oaks victory.

After blitzing her rivals in Friday’s semi-final the daughter of Cashen Legend once again showed blistering early pace for a three-and-a-quarter lengths traps-to-line victory in the 470 metre contest sponsored by ECC Timber.

Evanta Evita, the Lakenheath handler’s other entry in the race, which was worth £15,000 to the winner, finished back in fourth.
