Newmarket: Impressive Eternity earns 40-1 Oaks quote.

Byline: Tony Elves

JOHN GOSDEN'S Echoes In Eternity earned a 40-1 quote from Victor Chandler for next year's Vodafone Oaks after making an impressive debut in the mile maiden fillies' race, writes Tony Elves.

The betting suggested stablemate Felicity, the 11-4 favourite, was the one to be with from the Gosden camp but she went out like a damp squib from halfway.

The same could not be said of 10-1 shot Echoes of Eternity, who led inside the final furlong and sprinted clear for a three-and-a-half-length victory from Discreet Brief.

Gosden, speaking from his Manton base, said: "The ground has been so firm she has just been doing nice work on the bridle but she had been pleasing me and I hoped she would run well. We may look at a Listed race or something similar now."
