Rain springs 20-1 Oaks shock


Dancing Rain landed the Investec Oaks at Epsom under a superb ride from Johnny Murtagh.

The jockey went straight to the front on the William Haggas-trained filly, who was sent off a 20-1 chance, and set a sedate pace in the Classic.

Wonder Of Wonders was always prominent and gave chase when the pace hotted up down the straight, but Dancing Rain had plenty in the locker and stayed on well to win by three-quarters of a length, with Izzi Top grabbing third, a further four lengths behind.
