Autumn Rhythm.

DEPOSED Vodafone Oaks favourite Autumn Rhythm could yet make the Epsom Classic despite her defeat in the Feilden Stakes on Thursday.

Autumn Rhythm was reportedly fine yesterday, according to Henry Cecil. The trainer was unable to explain the cause of the broken blood vessel that resulted in her finishing sixth behind Olden Times.

"Autumn Rhythm is fine today but she bled very badly yesterday," he said. "It was a horrid day and there was an unbelievably cold wind, but I can't believe she is a bleeder. She was not distressed afterwards. She will have to have an easy week to 10 days."

Curtain Time showed enough in his winning performance to earn a 12-1 quote for the Derby.

Cecil said: "Curtain Time might prove to be a very good horse. For him to win when he was so backward was very encouraging. He could be very nice."
