Tokyo: Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks) (Grade 1) 1m4f, turf, 3yo fillies

GENTILDONNA (Sei Ishizaka/Yuga Kawada) emphasised her superiority over the Japanese crop of three-year-old fillies as she landed her second Classic on Sunday in the Yushun Himba.

Having defeated Verxina by a half-length to land the Oka Sho (1,000 Guineas) last month, the 4.6-1 shot extended the margin to five lengths in the Japanese Oaks.
