Zurigha and Ryan Moore are clear to win the Snowdrop Stakes
Zurigha and Ryan Moore are clear to win the Snowdrop Stakes

Fourth in the French 1000 Guineas last season, the Richard Hannon-trained filly was wisely guided to victory by Ryan Moore from off a languid pace.

Zurigha was never too far off the speed as Senafe took the field along at a lackadaisical gallop, but Moore went for the jugular just before the one-furlong pole.

Ribbons was moored towards the rear of the hunting pack for most of the one-mile journey and came with a surging late dash to take second spot, beaten a length and a quarter.

Hannon said: "I have worked her here recently and she's shown she's going the right way. That's her second Listed win and I think she'll win a Group race, although we might have to go abroad to get that."

Trainer James Fanshawe said Ribbons would need to win a race between now and Royal Ascot to go for the Windsor Forest Stakes
