Wilshire Boulevard: Seemed to relish the test of stamina

Wilshire Boulevard: Seemed to relish the test of stamina

Wilshire Boulevard outpointed better-fancied stablemate Oklahoma City to give Aidan O'Brien a one-two in the Jebel Ali Racecourse & Stables Anglesey Stakes at the Curragh.

Oklahoma City was sent off the evens favourite having won a Naas maiden by 13 lengths last time, and Joseph O'Brien soon had him in the lead on the stands rail.

He ran on strongly, but was no match for Wilshire Boulevard (7/1), who seemed to relish the step back up to six furlongs as he challenged a furlong and a half out under Seamie Heffernan and scored by three-quarters of a length.

O'Brien said: "We left the hood off today and he settled well. He's a brother to Zoffany and like a lot of the Holy Roman Emperor's (sire) he seems to be improving."

O'Brien added of the runner-up: "I was happy with the run and he will probably step up to seven furlongs now."
