Dyna Waltz gets the better of Timepiece.

Dyna Waltz gets the better of Timepiece.

Dyna Waltz (7-1) came from the clouds to win going away in the Oaks Trial Stakes at Lingfield.

Bebopalula had set a frenetic pace up front and although Henry Cecil's odds-on favourite Timepiece went to the lead with two furlongs to run, she was making heavy weather of things.

Just as it looked like the 4-7 market leader might hang on after getting the better of Ceilidh House, Ryan Moore hit top gear on John Gosden's three-year-old and powered home to score with a length in hand.

Moore said of his mount, last seen finishing ninth in the Nell Gwyn at Newmarket: "They went a good gallop and she just stayed on.

"She tries very hard and she just stays."

Les Reynolds, Gosden's travelling head lad, said: "We are really happy with that and she just outstayed them in the end.

"She's got a great attitude and I'm sure Mr Gosden and Mr (George) Strawbridge (owner) will have a plan for her now."

A downcast Cecil said: "She was disappointing. She was hanging a bit and I don't know whether she's still a baby or she just didn't stay.

Ralph Beckett reported of Ceilidh House: "They were racing a long way out and she'll come on for it.

"She should get a bit more ease at Epsom if she goes."

"She didn't run like she works."

Sky Bet cut the winner to 12-1 from 50-1 for the Epsom Oaks, while at the same time pushing out Timepiece to 10s from 7-1.

Matt Doyle of Sky Bet said: "Although she had excuses, it was disappointing to see Timepiece turned over in a race she was expected to win and she has now been replaced by Rumoush at the head of our Oaks betting.'
