Confirmed runners and riders for Saturday's Juddmonte Irish Oaks at the Curragh

Snowfall is still on track to land her second Group 1 in Saturday's Irish Oaks
1 of 1

Eight runners are set to line up for Saturday's Juddmonte Irish Oaks at the Curragh with only one horse taken out at Thursday's declaration stage. 

The Aidan O'Brien-trained High Heels was the only omission from the field for the Group 1 after coming fourth in the Group 3 Stanerra Stakes a week ago. 

However, O'Brien still holds all the cards for Saturday's race with Snowfall dominating the betting following her dominant display at Epsom.

Her 16-length rout of her opponents in the Oaks has left the daughter of Deep Impact long odds-on to make it two Classic wins in a row, and she will be joined by stablemates Divinely, La Jaconde and Willow.  

Jockeys are yet to be confirmed for the Ballydoyle runners, although O'Brien's first-choice, Ryan Moore, will be the likely partner of Snowfall after choosing to ride Santa Barbara at Epsom.

Nicest will represent the yard of Donnacha O'Brien, with Gavin Ryan aboard again following the pair's third in the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot. 

Joseph O'Brien will be represented by Mariesque, one of the most lightly raced fillies in the field, and she will be partnered by Shane Crosse. 

Ger Lyons and Colin Keane combined to claim their first Irish Oaks last year with Even So, and the pair will try again with Party House, who was last seen finishing behind Willow and Mariesque at Naas. 

Rounding out the field is the outsider Ahandfulofsummers for Fozzy Stack with Chris Hayes in the saddle.
