Oxted and Fallon rewarded for rare July Cup double

Only Sundridge has won the Group One Darley July Cup Stakes three times (1902-1904), but a handful of horses made it double, and Oxted will look to join that list this afternoon with Cieren Fallon on board again, after winning this past year.

Ranked 112 claiming the 2020 victory, Oxted has had varying fortunes since then, and I was starting to worry about him when he only managed to get into a Group 3 and Group 2 until April and May respectively.

But any doubts I had about his abilities were dispelled when he drove a meteoric run to win the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot last month, pushing his rating back up to 119.
