Emily Upjohn Won’t Run In 2022 Irish Oaks After Travel Problems
Emily Upjohn had been all the rage ahead of Saturday’s 2022 Irish Oaks at the Curragh as trainer John Gosden and jockey Frankie Dettori were eyeing up their third success in the race since 2017.
However, the Epsom Oaks runner-up will now MISS THE RACE after suffering some travel issues on Friday at Stansted airport, with her intended plane unable to take off.
Emily Upjohn had been as low as 2/5 in the betting to land the Irish Classic on Sunday but Gosden spilled the news on Friday lunchtime that her plane has sustained a bird strike earlier that day and due to logistical problems was unable to take off again.
The ‘good news’ for Emily Upjohn fans though is that there is talk of her being rerouted to Ascot next Saturday for the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Qipco Stakes – where she’s @ 5/2 with BoylesSports and is set to take on the Irish Derby winner Westover @ 6/4 with BoyleSports

Magical Lagoon The New Irish Oaks Favourite
As a result, the Irish Oaks betting market was shaken up badly after the Emily Upjohn news, which saw the Jessie Harrington-trained MAGICAL LAGOON @ 6/5 with BoyleSports installed as the new market leader for the 3:45 Curragh race on Saturday.
This 3 year-old was last seen winning the G2 Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot in June on only her fifth career run. That was her first try over this 1m4f trip too, but she stayed on well that day to see off Sea Silk Road, with another runner on Saturday – History – back in third. On that form she’s the clear one to beat.
Add in that she’s also a proven course winner here at the Curragh, after winning over a mile at the track last August, then the track is fine too. Regular rider Shane Foley rides again too and, in what looks a weak Group One race now, she’s been given a top chance to get a win at the highest level and also provide her trainer – Jessie Harrington – with her first success in this top Irish race.
