Sea Of Class will be aimed at the Darley Irish Oaks at the Curragh on July 21.

Trainer William Haggas decided to skip Friday’s Investec Oaks at Epsom following heavy rain earlier in the week.

The Sea The Stars filly burst on to the scene when winning at Newbury on May 19 and Haggas will look to continue her education somewhere else first before her trip to Ireland.

“I think the rain was the final nail in her coffin. She is a very nice filly, a very late foal,” Haggas told At The Races.

“I was sort of coming round to the idea of running, but then they had that slosh of rain and I think the Oaks is just a race too early for her.

“We’ll aim her now for Ireland on July 21 and have a run before then.

“She’s smart and has a turn of speed which is good. I was gutted she couldn’t run, but my gut feeling also said it was the right decision – we’ll never know whether it was or not.”
