Kissed is made to measure for Investec Oaks win, says Moore

EY R

EY Ryan Moore believes Kissed can win today’s Investec Oaks because she is “tailor-made” for the nature of the race, despite doubts over her participation.

Kissed’s high-knee action has prompted uncertainty over her participation in the race, with trainer Aidan O’Brien unsure if the conditions are suitable for the horse, but jockey Moore believes the filly is ideally suited to compete.

“I think Kissed is tailor-made for the race,” Moore said. “I believe Kissed could be the one to beat.”

Tomorrow’s Epsom Derby, meanwhile, will feature its smallest field in over a century with nine runners – Camelot, Astrology, Bonfire, Main Sequence, Mickdaam, Thought Worthy, Cavaleiro, Minimise Risk and Rugged Cross – set to compete.
