Walk in the Park for Titania
My Titania fought off the late challenge of Chicago Girl to land the Group 3 CL Weld Park Stakes at the Curragh.
The 11/10 favourite travelled smoothly in midfield behind leaders Minorette and Tarfasha for the majority of the race and was angled out by jockey Declan McDonogh to make her challenge two furlongs from home.
She cruised to the front and then showed a smart turn of foot a couple of lengths clear when asked for her effort just before the furlong pole. However, the Johnny Murtagh-trained Chicago Girl plugged on tenaciously and was eating up the ground as the winning post approached.
However, My Titania was not for passing and she dug deep to deny the runner-up by half a length.
Sky Bet were impressed with John Oxx's filly and cut her to 14/1 (from 20/1) for the Investec Oaks at Epsom next year.
