Kissed stamps Oaks claim
Aidan O'Brien's Kissed was cut for the Epsom Oaks after winning the Salsabil Stakes at Navan.
Sky Bet now go 9-2 (from 8s) for the Classic after the sister of Derby hero Pour Moi won on the bridle, beating Aaraas by eight lengths hard-held.
Joseph O'Brien gave the daughter of Galileo a positive ride and the result was never in doubt for the 2-5 favourite.
The winning rider said: "She's very uncomplicated and she's a lovely big scopey mare. She's got a great attitude too.
"You'd have to be delighted with her performance as she jumped and travelled and never looked like she was going to get in trouble.
"It was slow ground out there and she got a little bit tired, so hopefully she can improve.
"Her brother won the Derby last year, so you'd have to be hopeful she would handle the track (if she went to Epsom).
"It's a long way away and it would be premature to say if anything was going to Epsom or not.
"With natural improvement, you'd like to think she could become that kind of a filly.
"Both of her runs have been on softer ground and until she runs on faster ground we won't really know if she'll act on it.''
