Oaks, second Mystery Angel to return in July | Race News

Mystery Angel is expected to return to action next month as relations mull over options for his next race after justifying the decision to round out the Cazoo Oaks by finishing second behind the brilliant Snowfall.

Owners Nick Bradley Racing 27 and his partner shelled out £ 22,500 to add it to the Classic at the confirmation stage, and were rewarded with a salary of almost £ 85,000.

The filly trained by George Boughey will not race at Royal Ascot but is expected to return next month instead.

“It was a great race. We knew she was in great shape before the race,” said Nick Bradley.

“We had a plan – Ben (Curtis) executed it perfectly and everything went well. The best horse won and the second best horse finished second.

“I was delighted with her. She won’t be going to Royal Ascot. Beyond that, there is no obvious race for her.

“I would love to bring her back to Newmarket. I think there is a three-year-old group for a mile and a quarter.

“Nothing is concrete yet, but she will be running somewhere early next month.”

It was a fabulous Friday at Epsom for Team Boughey and Bradley, as Oscula kicked off the game with a clear win in the Woodcote Stakes.

The daughter of Galileo Gold got such low odds at 6-1 for the Albany Stakes at Royal Ascot.

She could go in Group 3, or possibly in Chantilly for the Prix du Bois on June 20.

“She is a quality filly and she won it very easily,” said Bradley.

“Mark (Crehan) gave him a great ride, and it was his biggest day. I was thrilled for him. I love working with him – he’s very successful now.

“She can go to Ascot for Albany, (or) she can go to France for a Group 3 at Chantilly on the day of the Prix de Diane – the Prix du Bois.”
