   Catching many an eye with her winning debut effort over a mile at Goodwood in September, Liber Nauticus (Ire) (Azamour {Ire}) returned to keep her unbeaten record intact in this trial for the G1 Epsom Oaks. Settled with only Woodland Aria behind early on the rain-softened ground, the bay was shaken up passing the half-mile marker and ground her way to the front with over two furlongs remaining. Kept up to her work by Ryan Moore, she required only two slaps with the whip to ward off the eventual third as Romantic Settings (GB) (Mount Nelson {GB}) stayed on for second without threatening. "She battled on well and she’s a a filly for the future," Ballymacoll Stud’s Racing Manager Peter Reynolds commented. "She is staying-bred, so there should be loads of opportunities for us. The last time we won this was with Islington (Ire) (Sadler’s Wells) 11 years ago and she went to the Oaks and got hammered, before coming back and won the Yorkshire Oaks and Breeders’ Cup. I hope this filly could be something like her, and she has a beautiful temperament. They love her in the yard, and Sir Michael [Stoute] has done a fantastic job with her. He could have run her again at the back-end of last year, but he hung on to her and worked with her. It’s been a bit of a battle to get her to come in her coat and she has now. She’s entered in the [May 31] Epsom Oaks, the G2 Ribblesdale S. [at Royal Ascot June 20] and G1 Irish Oaks [at The Curragh July 20], so she has alternatives. She’s a big filly for Epsom, but she handled Goodwood very well so we’ll see--we’ll see how she comes out of the race and see what Sir Michael wants to do. It’s his decision where she goes. She’ll thrive for a mile and a half, and Ryan [Moore] was very pleased with her in a muddling race. She is a baby still, and I don’t think we saw quite what she is capable of today."
