Dermot Weld says Tarfasha won't run in the Oaks if the ground is soft, with Royal Ascot and the Irish Oaks alternatives.

The daughter of Teofilo was an accomplished winner of the Group Three Blue Wind Stakes at Naas, but Weld will consider other alternatives if the ground further deteriorates.

He said: "I'm very happy, but she's a fluid-moving filly and likes top of the ground.

"If the ground was good to yielding I would be very happy, but if it turned up soft I don't think we'd run.

"She'd then go to Royal Ascot or the Irish Oaks."
