After an effortless victory in the Vintage Crop Stakes at Navan, Emily Dickinson is being considered by Aidan O’Brien as a potential replacement for Kyprios in the Gold Cup.

The chestnut horse was victorious in the listed race over a mile and three-quarters a year ago before clinching the win at Ascot. As a result of Kyprios being out of action, O’Brien required a stayer for the Cup races and Emily Dickinson seems to be a good fit after finishing last year with a Group Three win.

Ryan Moore kept the filly close to the pace, and she pulled away in the heavy ground to win by five lengths from French Claim. The 4-year-old filly is currently a 4-1 favourite for the Gold Cup.

O’Brien said of his 11-8 winner: “She loves a trip and she relaxes, that’s the key. She stays well and she has class as well. She’s an exciting filly, she has a big engine.

“The plan was to come here and then go to Leopardstown for the Saval Beg. Then, hopefully, she will go from there to the Gold Cup.

“She is a filly that we always thought when she went beyond a mile and a half, we would see the best of her.

“She handles an ease in the ground well, but she also handles quick ground.”
